The power and performance benefits of LPDDR2 make it a popular mobile memory solution for ARM-based systems. ARM is a market leader in providing processor IP and other key building blocks that enable a spectrum of mobile devices to combine performance with long battery life. Micron works closely with the ARM community to design LPDDR2 memory solutions into their mobile offerings, providing a complete package to the handset vendors.
Micron?s LPDDR2 family:
- Operates at 1.2-volts, reducing the device's memory power consumption as much as 50 percent when compared to LPDDR1
- Delivers data transferring speeds of up to 1066 Mb per second, boosting the operating capability of mobile applications
- Supports advanced mechanisms for managing power usage, allowing for portions of the array to be powered down when not required
- Offers a broad temperature range - 40 C to +105 C
Micron expects to be in mass production with the 2Gb LPDDR2 in the third quarter of 2010.
