Micron claims the smallest 1GB DDR2 chip

Memory chip manufacturer Micron Technology has announced production sampling of its 1GB DDR2 device fabricated on 68nm DRAM process technology. The new chip will target server, mobile and other computing applications where benefits of reduced die size, faster speeds and lower power consumption are critical.

The new chip is expected to go for mass production early next year and will increase speed and decrease power consumption by 20% compared to previous versions, Micron claimed. Additionally, the chip manufactured with Micron’s 6F Technology with a die size of 56 square millimeters will be the smallest 1GB DDR2 chip.

Micron also added that its DDR3 products are in the pipeline and will support speeds up to 1600Mbps. The products manufactured through the 68nm process will also have lower power consumption and be available as a part of Micron’s Aspen Memory family of energy-efficient products design for data center serves and notebook computers, the company said.

Micron recently entered the solid state drive market with its RealSSD family of products. The company said it expected to plug the technology into portable storage devices by mid- to end 2008.
