World’s Fastest 200MHz 512Mb Mobile DRAM from Hynix

Hynix Semiconductor, Inc. today announced it has developed the world’s fastest and smallest 512Megabit mobile DRAM. This product meets JEDEC standards and operates at 200MHz – the fastest in the industry. By using 32-bit wide I/Os, Hynix’s 512Mb mobile DDR SDRAM processes 1.6Gbytes (400 bps x32) of data per second, which is approximately 1.5 times faster than speed of the company’s existing mobile DRAM products. Hynix says “The new Hynix 512Megabit mobile DRAM will deliver the memory capacity and speed required for third generation mobile phones that provide new services, such as DMB (Digital Media Broadcast), to subscribers.

Hynix is expected to combine 512Mb mobile DRAM and NAND Flash in a multi-chip package (MCP), which will enable the design of slimmer mobile phones. Hynix will continue to enhance the development and marketing of mobile DRAM products that meet customers’ demands for higher speeds, larger capacity and lower power, in small form factor packages.
