Micron Introduces 2Gb Low-Power DDR2 Memory for Smartphones and Smartbooks
Micron Technology today announced that it is now sampling a monolithic 2-gigabit (Gb) low-power DDR2 (LPDDR2) memory device designed to provide mobile products, such as smartphones and smartbooks, with improved battery life and speedier system performance.
The new 2Gb LPDDR2 can be used as a stand-alone device or in combination with Micron's NAND for high-capacity multichip package (MCP) or package-on-package (POP) solutions. By stacking four of these 2Gb LPDDR2 memory devices, Micron can achieve an ultra high-density, 8Gb-based solution.
Micron's LPDDR2 family:
- Operates at 1.2-volts, reducing the device's memory power consumption by as much as 50% compared to LPDDR1;
- Delivers data transferring speeds of up to 1066 Mb per second;
- Supports advanced mechanisms for managing power usage, allowing for portions of the array to be powered down when not required;
- Offers a broad temperature range from 40°C to +105°C;
Micron expects to launch the mass production of 2Gb LPDDR2 in the third quarter of 2010.
