SEOUL, Korea - June 3, 2000 - Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. is the first in the industry to unveil a super-fast 16Mb SRAM (Static RAM) for use in next-generation networking applications. Samsung Electronics has already delivered samples of its 16Mb synchronous SRAM, dubbed `NtRAM`, to several top-tier networking companies. NtRAM (No turnaround RAM) is ideally suited for network switching applications, where usable bandwidth is critical. Applications include switches connecting users to a server, and routers connecting users to the Internet. Samsung`s NtRAM product family now includes 4Mb, 8Mb and16Mb densities. The company has become the frontrunner in the market for leading edge memory components used in telecommunications products with Internet functions and with the explosion of the Internet, networking requirements are increasing tenfold every year

Samsung held a 20.5% share of the world SRAM market in 1998, the fourth year in a row that the company has been the market leader. With the introduction of the new 16Mb SRAM, Samsung`s leading position will continue to extend.
