The new 25nm process-generation product now being shipped is a DDR3 SDRAM with a memory capacity of 2-gigabits (see product specifications below). A 25nm 4-gigabit DDR3 SDRAM is expected to become commercially available by the end of 2011.
These 25nm-process products will be used for PC and server applications. The process will also be used to develop applications of Elpida's Mobile RAM for use in various kinds of mobile devices, starting with the growth areas of smart phones and tablet PCs.
Special features of the 25nm SDRAM include lower current usage (roughly 15% less during operation, 20% less when on standby) compared with Elpida's current process 30nm-generation products and one of the highest data transfer rates in the industry.
