SAMSUNG Ships Out High-performance 16M SDRAM Supersets

Moreover, the SDRAM Superset is compatible with any type of controller, the chip size is smaller than other SDRAMs and testing time is shortened. These benefits mean cost savings for users.

Samsung` SDRAM Superset come in two versions. The 100MHz model is used in the main memory of 75MHz servers and workstations as well as in 3D image auxiliary systems. On the other hand, the 83MHz version is used in 66MHz PCs and set-top boxes.

The premium enjoyed for regular DRAM devices will disappear in the third quarter of this year. At the same time, multimedia PCs and microprocessors are constantly getting faster and 3D graphics are becoming more commonplace. For these reasons, users are expected to accelerate their changeover to SDRAM devices. This means that Samsung Electronics will change from EDO DRAMs to SDRAMs.

Therefore, the 100MHz SDRAM will take precedence over the 50MHz regular DRAM. Within the next two years, superfast, multi-functional versions of between 250 and 500MHz are expected to become mainstream in the marketplace.

By shipping out its first orders of SDRAM Supersets, Samsung is leading the way in promoting its use. This will help the company retain its leading position in memory products.

Samsung Electronics expects to produce 12 million SDRAM Supersets this year. In 1997, the SDRAM Superset will represent 35% of total DRAM production, and by 1998 it will be at least 50% of all the DRAM products Samsung Electronics produces.

Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. is the world` leading producer of semiconductor memory products and a US$ 21 billion affiliate of Samsung Group, a US$ 80 billion Korea-based conglomerate. Among the industry` fastest growing high-quality, multinational IC manufacturers, Samsung manufactures more than 2,500 semiconductor product types across a range of categories. Its total annual semiconductor sales exceeded US$ 8 billion last year.
