SAMSUNG Electronics Develops the World’s Highest-capacity SRAM for Next Generation Network Applications

Seoul, Korea ? October 27, 2004 : Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., a leader in advanced silicon technology solutions, today announced it has developed a 72-megabit (Mb) Quad Data Rate (QDR) II SRAM, a next-generation memory device for high-performance networking systems.
The launch of Samsung's new 72Mb SRAM device marks it as the world's highest-capacity SRAM to date. The device simultaneously processes up to four different data streams and has double the capacity of the currently available 36Mb QDR II.
The 72Mb QDRII SRAM operates at 300 megahertz (MHz), or up to 20 percent faster than the conventional QDR II, resulting in added performance for network applications. The new device processes the data equivalent of 9,400 standard newspaper pages per second, and is perceived as the optimal device for next-generation high-speed switches and routers.
The QDR II SRAM is packaged as a fine ball grid array (FBGA), the international standard endorsed by JEDEC. It improves utilization of space on the system boards, since the overall size is 30 percent smaller than SRAMs in the thin quad flat package (TQFP).
For the past nine years, Samsung has retained the top share of the world SRAM market, which includes system SRAMs. In 2003, Samsung held a 33 percent market share, which was equivalent to the market share held by the second, third and fourth largest SRAM makers combined.
Market research firm Gartner Dataquest forecasts that sales of the 72Mb SRAMs will increase by an average of 132 percent each year, reaching US$800 million in 2008.
The company will begin full-scale production of the 72Mb QDR II SRAM in the first half of 2005.
