Elpida Presents x32-Bit 1Gb XDR DRAM

Jan 21, 2009
Tokyo-based Elpida Memory Inc, which develops Dynamic Random Access Memory (DRAM) silicon chips, presented its 1Gb XDR DRAM that is based on a x32-bit configuration. The Japanese company claims that the XDR is the fastest in the industry with an ultra-high speed of 7.2GHz.

The chip is able to transfer information at a rate of 28.8GBps with a single device. This makes the 1Gb XDR DRAM suitable for game consoles, DTVs and Blu-ray Disc recorders.

The company developed the chip using its 65nm process technology. The device uses a 1.5V low voltage operation and an x32-bit interface. The 1Gb XDR DRAM from Elpida Memory consumes 35 to 40 percent less power than two 512Mb XDR DRAMs based on a x16-bit configuration. Besides, it requires less space.

The company has already started shipping its new XDR. However, it will start mass production of the chips in April 2009.
