SAMSUNG Introduces Industry's First 4-GigaByte DDR Memory Module

Seoul, Korea, Jan. 20 2003: Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., the industry-leading memory technology supplier, today announced the industry's first 4 GigaByte (GByte) Double Data Rate (DDR) Dual In-line Memory Module (DIMM). The module encompasses thirty-six 1 Gigabit (Gb) DDR synchronous DRAM (SDRAM) components that achieve 4GByte density for high-performance applications such as servers, workstations and supercomputers.

"Samsung's advanced memory solutions are poised to enable an array of next-generation systems," said Jon Kang, Senior Vice President of Memory Product Planning and Engineering, Samsung Electronics. "Through close cooperation with top-tier manufacturers, Samsung's new high-density DDR solutions will expedite the availability of advanced computing systems."

The 4GByte DDR DIMM is based on Samsung's 0.10-micron technology 1Gb DDR SDRAM component. The 1Gb DDR SDRAM offers a 266Mbps - to - 333Mbps performance and will be available in -x4, -x8, and -x16 bit configurations with industry-standard 400mil TSOP2 packaging.

Samsung developed the industry's first fully working 1Gb DDR SDRAM in December 2002. And samples were delivered to major system developers at that time. Samsung plans mass production in the 2nd half of 2003.

Samsung is the industry leader in advanced memory solutions, including DDR333 and DDR400 high-speed solutions and 512Mb and 1Gb densities. According to researchers at Gartner Dataquest, the market for 1Gb DDR SDRAMs is expected to reach $7.4 billion by 2006.
