Elpida Expands DRAM For Consumer Devices

From Elpida’s press release:

Elpida Memory, Inc (Elpida), Japan’s leading global supplier of Dynamic Random Access Memory (DRAM), today announced that it now offers an expanded line of 0.11-micron, high-speed consumer DRAM devices for use in digital consumer applications. The devices are offered in 64 Megabit, 128 Megabit and 256 Megabit densities with 16-bit and 32-bit organizations and are available in TSOP, FBGA and Low-Profile Quad Flat Packages (LQFP) to satisfy growing market demand for memory products in multiple density and package options. The devices target digital consumer electronics applications that are now using DRAM for the first time, or that have a need for higher density DRAM than ever before. These applications include digital cameras, digital TVs, hard disk drive (HDD) recorders and personal video recorders.

“As the digital world continues to expand, more and more customers are seeking DRAM solutions to provide high-bandwidth performance to their consumer electronics products,” said Jun Kitano, director of Technical Marketing for Elpida Memory (USA). “Elpida’s proven and stable 0.11-micron DRAM devices allow us to offer consistent supply of consumer DRAM products in a variety of density and packaging options to fulfill market demand now and in the future.”

Elpida’s Digital Consumer DRAM Products
The Digital Consumer devices are available in 64 Megabit, 128 Megabit and 256 Megabit densities with x16 or x32-bit input/output configurations. All densities are offered in single data rate (SDR), SDRAM architecture-a higher performance double data rate (DDR) device is also available in a 128 Megabit density with a x32 input/output configuration. The devices are offered in TSOP, FBGA or LQFP packages as well as a “bare die” suitable for implementation in a customer’s own multi-chip package (MCP) or system-in-package (SiP) designs. Elpida’s Digital Consumer DRAM devices operate at up to 166 MHz for SDRAM products and up to 400 MHz for DDR products. SDRAM devices provide either 2.5 V or 3.3 V operation; DDR devices offer 2.5 V operation.

Elpida is currently sampling its comprehensive line of consumer DRAM products including 64 Megabit SDRAM (Part numbers: EDS6416 series (x16); EDS6432 series (x32), 128 Megabit SDRAM (Part numbers: EDS1216 series (x16); EDS1232 series (x32), 256 Megabit SDRAM (Part numbers: EDS2532 series (x32), and 128 Megabit DDR SDRAM (Part numbers: EDD1232 series (x32). Volume production is expected by July 2004. Please consult pricing and availability schedule for specific product information.
