Elpida Memory and Kingston
Technology announced that Elpida’s 512 Megabit DDR2 SDRAM devices have passed
Kingston Technology´s verification testing.
As part of its DDR2 dual in-line memory module (DIMM) verification testing,
Kingston built 512 Megabyte unbuffered DIMMs using Elpida’s DDR2 components.
Kingston’s modules were then tested to ensure compliance with JEDEC´s DDR2 specification.
DDR2 unbuffered DIMMs are considered a key element in next-generation high-performance
desktop computers in 2004.
Kingston’s DDR2 DIMMs offer a peak data transfer rate of 4.3 Gigabytes per
second (PC2-4300), or up to 8.6 Gigabytes per second in dual-channel configurations.
Elpida’s DDR2 components realize a 50% power reduction over DDR1 components.
In addition, Elpida’s advanced 0.11 micron process technology allows for high
yields on DDR2 products.
Kingston expects to start sampling DDR2 development memory modules to leading
chipset and motherboard manufacturers by the end of 2003.
