Elpida Memory today announced availability of a 512 Megabit DDR Digital Consumer DRAM device optimized for consumer electronics applications.
High-density, high-performance DRAM is becoming paramount in consumer electronics that have recently begun to support multi-channel MPEG decoding, high-definition video data or features such as picture-in-picture, and the 512 Megabit device is quickly gaining popularity in these applications.
Elpida claims that its device reduces power consumption (e.g. IDD4) by 30% which is achieved by re-designing the circuitry using advanced 90 nm process technology. The lowered power consumption provides better thermal performance.
Elpida's 512 Megabit DDR Digital Consumer DRAM - Technical Details
Elpida's 512 Megabit DDR Digital Consumer DRAM device (Part numbers: EDD5116AFTA, EDD5108AFTA) is organized as either 32M words x 16-bits or 64M words x 8-bits. The device provides high-speed operation-up to 400 Megabits per second (Mbps) (CL=3) and is able to offer a data transfer rate of up to 1.6 Gigabytes per second using two 512 Megabit DDR devices, each with a x16 configuration. The device is also available in Restriction on Hazardous Substances (RoHS) compliant 66-pin TSOP II packages.
Elpida also has future plans to offer a 512 Megabit Digital Consumer DRAM device that supports industrial temperatures (-40 to +85 C) for car navigation systems.
Elpida's 512 Megabit DDR Digital Consumer DRAM devices are currently available to customers as samples. Volume production is expected in October 2005.
