Elpida Memory, a Japanese memory manufacturer that used to be far from success a couple of years ago, these days demonstrates its technology leadership by rolling-out the latest DDR-II DRAM components made using cutting-edge manufacturing technologies. The company today announced the successful manufacturing of its first 1Gb DDR-II 533MHz chip made using 0.10 micron fabrication process.

1 Gigabit memory devices may become an important milestone for the whole industry. Such memory chips may be used for creating high-density memory modules tremendously required in server, mobile and desktop applications.

Since the density of memory chips increases from 512Mb to 1Gb, it is very important to produce them using thinner technology on 300mm wafers. Manufacturing 1Gb DDR-II chips utilising leading-edge 0.10 micron technology and 300mm wafers, Elpida is now in a very favourable position to ramp up the manufacturing of such DRAMs next year.

Samples of Elpida’s 1Gb DDR-II SDRAM devices are scheduled to ship in November 2003, with volume shipment projected for early 2004.
