Elpida Ramps Up Production of 30-nm DRAM
Elpida Memory today announced that mass production of 30-nm 2-gigabit DDR3 SDRAM for PC applications will start in May 2011, followed by 4-gigabit DDR2 Mobile RAM and 4-gigabit DDR3 SDRAM.
The company completed development of advanced 30-nm process DRAM in September 2010 and started shipping 2-gigabit samples to major customers including the processor makers in December of the same year. Mass production was launched in January 2011 and the production scale has been gradually increasing.
Elpida's 30nm process DRAM yields 45% more chips per wafer than 40-nm products and consumes at least 20% less power. With one of the smallest chip sizes and better power efficiency, 30-nm process DRAM helps slash the size and power consumption of a wide range of digital electronics devices, from lightweight battery-powered mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets, to computers and servers.
