Elpida Memory announced a new 1.8 Volt, 256 Megabit SDRAM device suitable for use in applications
that require lower power operation as well as higher density.
Such applications could include battery-operated products such as digital still cameras, digital video
cameras and other handheld.
The new devices also support a x32-bit configuration to deliver a small form-factor package that minimizes
board space. Elpida claims that the new 1.8 Volt 256 Megabit SDRAM device provides a 50 percent
reduction in power versus similar SDRAM products at 2.5 Volt operation.
Elpida's 256 Megabit Digital Consumer SDRAM - Technical Details:
Elpida's 256 Megabit SDRAM devices (Part numbers: EDS2532EEBH-**-E; EDS2532JEBH-**-E) are
organized as 8M words x 32-bits and support 1.8 Volt or 2.5 Volt operation, respectively, and they operate
at frequencies up to 166 MHz. The 256 Megabit SDRAM devices are produced using advanced
0.10-micron process technology and are available in FBGA packages or as a bare die suitable for use in
System-in-Package (SiP) or Multi-Chip Package (MCP) designs.
Elpida's 256 Megabit SDRAM devices (Part numbers: EDS2532EEBH-**-E; EDS2532JEBH-**-E) will be
available as samples in June 2005. Volume is anticipated for September 2005.
