MUNICH --Infineon Technologies AG today announced it has become the first company to use 512-megabit double-data rate SDRAMs to build 1-gigabyte and 2-Gbyte dual-inline memory modules (DIMMs) for high-end PCs, workstations, and computer servers.
The new DDR memory modules are being demonstrated at the JEDEX Conference this week in Santa Clara, Calif. The 1-Gbyte module is aimed at high-performance PCs and workstations, while the 2-Gbyte DIMM is being marketed for workstations and servers.
The 1-Gbyte unbuffered DIMM uses eighteen 512-Mbit synchronous DRAMs in a 64-Mbit-by-8-bit configuration. The 2-Gbyte registered DIMM uses 36 stacked 512-Mbit memories organized 256-Mbit-by-4-bits. Both of the new DDR DIMMs have 184 pin and operate from 2.5 volts.
Samples of the 1-Gbyte modules are available at a price of $1,900 each. Samples of the 2-Gbyte DIMMs will be available to qualified customers in April at a price of $3,900.
