Hynix Semiconductor has claimed it has developed the world’s fastest and smallest 512Megabit mobile DRAM.
This product meets JEDEC standards and operates at 200MHz, the fastest in the industry.
By using 32-bit wide I/Os, Hynix’s 512Mb mobile DDR SDRAM processes 1.6Gbytes (400 bps x32) of data per second, which is approximately 1.5 times faster than speed of the company’s existing mobile DRAM products.
Hynix says “The product will deliver the memory capacity and speed required for third generation mobile phones that provide new services, such as DMB (Digital Media Broadcast), to subscribers.”
The chips measures 8mm x 10mm, the smallest in size to meet a market need to miniaturize handsets, it said. The company is expected to combine 512Mb mobile DRAM and NAND Flash in a multi-chip package (MCP), which will enable the design of slimmer mobile phones.
