Boise, Idaho Micron Technology Inc. is sampling 2-Gbit, DDR2 devices to a select server customer.
The DRAM maker said the part, MT47H512M4HG, is designed to enable up to 8-Gbyte high density modules, providing more memory per server with less space and power consumption than current component offerings.
“Delivering the first functional 2-Gbit components is a pinnacle milestone that clearly defines our progress, distinguishes us from our competition and highlights our commitment to the server market,” said Terry Lee, executive director of Advanced Technology and Strategic Marketing for Micron’s Systems Memory Group, in a statement. “By being the first to provide the server market with these 2-Gbit DDR2 components, we expect to enable customers to immediately begin the testing and qualification process, thus speeding their time to market.”
Engineering samples of the 2-Gbit, DDR2 DRAM, dubbed MT47H512M4HG, are expected to be available in the second half of this year. Production quantities are expected to be available in the fourth quarter of 2006.
Micron's 2-Gbit DDR2 sample device is approximately $800.00 per component, according to a spokesperson.
