TwinMOS Launches TwiSTER DDR2-850 CL5 Overclocking DRAM Modules

TwinMOS Technologies introduced the brand new TwiSTER DDR2-850 CL5 overclocking DRAM modules following the TwiSTER DDR2-800 CL5 and TwiSTER DDR2-1066 CL5.

The modules feature new-generation 0.09m original dies in a 64Mx8 configuration along with the latest FPBGA packaging technology. A JEDEC-standard 6-layer PCB is used to stabilize data transfer signals. Each module is cooled by a heatsink.

BenQ Introduces X710 Digital Camera

BenQ today announces the launch of the BenQ X710, featuring a large 3-inch LTPS LCD display, a 7.2-megapixel CCD imager, an SMC Pentax (Super Multi-Coating) lens with 3x optical zoom and supports up to ISO4000 in movie recording mode. The slender X710 arrives with an ultra-slim body in an eye-catching aluminum casing and is the slimmest camera that features a 3-inch high resolution display to date, offering users instant photo sharing at any viewing angle.

To minimize image blur, the BenQ X710 incorporates the S.S.F. (super shake-free) system of which includes a high light sensitivity portrait mode of ISO1200 to facilitate shooting when capturing fast moving objects in poor lighting conditions and a shake-free mode to compensate for handshakes when taking pictures.

The X710 boasts 6 different shooting modes, including manual mode, S.S.F. (Super Shake-Free) mode, portrait mode and night scene mode, providing users quick setting adjustments with a variety of shooting options. The camera includes the PictBridge function for direct photo printing via a compatible printer and supports SD memory card of up to 2G.

Samsung Unveils New Fusion Memory Solution - OneDRAM

Samsung Electronics today announced that it has developed a prototype fusion memory chip that can significantly increase the data processing speed between processors in mobile applications.

Samsung's new fusion solution OneDRAM is expected to be specified in the design of handsets, game consoles and in other digital applications, especially those that use 3-dimensional graphics.

The 133MHz 512Mb device incorporates a dual-port approach to sharply increase the time that it takes to transfer data between processors. Data managed by the processors is housed in a shared bank where the space for storing data can be adjusted accordingly. This meets the JEDEC low power double-data-rate (LPDDR) memory standard.

Due to rapidly increasing demand for multimedia features in mobile applications, designers have been specifying the use of two separate processors a communication processor and a media processor. The new OneDRAM will channel data between the processors through a single chip eliminating the need to also specify DRAM and SRAM chips for buffer memory.

According to the press release, along with the faster data processing speeds between the processors, the OneDRAM reduces power consumption by 30 percent, lessens the number of chips needed and minimizes area coverage by 50 percent, resulting in a five-fold increase in the speed of cell phone and gaming console operations, longer battery life and slimmer handset designs.

A single OneDRAM can replace, at least, two mobile memories in high-end smart phones and other multimedia-rich handsets. In addition, by adjusting the hardware in the chipset, OneDRAM can cost-effectively reduce system circuitry, while maximizing overall operational efficiency.

Samsung expects its OneDRAM to be introduced in handsets by the second half of 2007.
