Elpida Memory today announced that it had begun sample shipments
of its new 2-gigabit DDR3 SDRAM (product names: EDJ2116DEBG and
EDJ2108DEBG) geared for use in consumer electrical appliances.
The new SDRAM is the industry's smallest 2-gigabit DDR3 that
supports an x16-bit I/O interface.
The new 2-gigabit DDR3 SDRAM is well suited to consumer
electrical appliances. It meets the high-speed DDR3-1600
(1600Mbps) standard likely to become the mainstream memory speed
standard in 2011, uses energy-efficient 1.35V for the DDR3L-1333
memory speed and is compliant with DDR3-Plus (seamless BL4
access) for upgrading the performance of consumer electrical
Compared with Elpida's existing x16-bit I/O products for use in
consumer electrical appliances the new SDRAM uses 30% less
current and its low 1.35V operating voltage increases its
attractiveness as an eco-friendly DRAM.
