Tokyo, JapanTargeted at the server market, Elpida Memory Inc. is sampling 2-Gbit DDR2 SDRAMs that are manufactured using 80-nm process technology.
The 2-Gbit DDR2 SDRAM devices are available in three different data-rate speeds, including 533-Mbits/s, 667-Mbits/s, or 800-Mbits/s. They are organized as either 64 M words x 4 bits x 8 banks or as 32 M words x 8 bits x 8 banks.
The supply voltage (VDD) is 1.8-V ± 0.1-V, and the operating temperature range is 0 to 85°C. The devices are available in 68-ball FBGA packages for easy mounting on dual in-line memory modules (DIMMs).
The devices will be manufactured at Elpida's 300-mm wafer manufacturing facility, the E300 Fab, in Hiroshima, Japan.
"Inherent in the 80-nm production process technology is the fact that devices using this process will be even smaller in size, although their density is greater," said Jun Kitano, director of technical marketing for Elpida Memory (USA) Inc., in a statement.
Depending on the speed grade, pricing of the 2-Gbit DDR2 SDRAM devices varies from $180 to $290. The following devices are organized as 64 M words x 4 bits x 8 banks: part number EDE2104AASE-8G-E (DDR2-800) costs $290; EDE2104AASE-6E-E (DDR2-667) costs $210; and EDE2104AASE-5C-E (DDR2-533) costs $200.
The following devices are organized as 32 M words x 8 bits x 8 banks: part number EDE2108AASE-8G-E (DDR2-800) costs $260; EDE2108AASE-6E-E (DDR2-667) costs $190; and EDE2108AASE-5C-E (DDR2-533) costs $180.
