SAMSUNG Electronics Announces High-Speed RDRAM® RIMM

" After 512Mb/1Gb density DRAM devices will be prevalent due to bit growth driven by server applications and cost efficient 300mm fabs. However, to meet 128Mb memory bus requirements in high performance systems, memory upgrade of 512MB/1GB granularity maybe economically unfeasible. Said Jon Kang, Sr. Vice President of Samsung Electronics Memory Division. “A key feature for Samsung’s 32bit RIMM4200 is the fine granularity for successful application in high performance memory upgrade needs."

The RIMM4200 module provides performance of 4.2GBps with 2 slots, an attractive solution in the small form factor system in which many devices are required in a minimum area.

In addition, two RIMM4200 modules, in parallel, presented in a 64bit data bus system will generate speeds of 8.4GBps. Thus highlighting emphasizing the Rambus DRAM solution as a driving force in the high-performance memory market.

Samsung Electronics remains committed to the RDRAM as it is expected to continue to establish its position as a high-performance solution for high-end PCs and workstations in the 2nd half of 2002. The company plans to drive cost reduction and productivity by initiating mass production of 256Mb and 288Mb devices on 0.13um geometry in the 1st half of this year. Densities of 576Mb and higher devices are introduced in the company roadmap for future memory solutions.

The market requires timely introduction of advanced memories and Samsung plans to establish RDRAM as an optimal choice for high-performance memories not only for PC and workstations but other diverse applications.
