Micron Technology announced that it has provided the first samples of its DDR-II SDRAM SODIMM modules to Intel. It is remarkable that Micron has the first samples of its DDR-II products for mobile computers due in the second half of 2004 out now. The company probably pins a lot of hopes on emerging market of powerful mobile and transportable computers.

DDR-II SODIMM modules provide significant benefits to notebook PCs, including space saving form factor, low power consumption, improved thermal characteristics, and high bandwidth compared to today’s DDR solutions. Micron is providing its DDR-II SODIMMs in various module configurations. These configurations include 128MB and 256MB using x16 and x8 components.

Intel’s first mainstream platform with DDR-II support is expected to emerge sometime in the second half of 2004. Besides the DDR-II memory, the code-named Alviso core-logic – the base for the next-generation Intel Centrino “Sonoma” Platform – will bring PCI Express and Serial ATA-150 to mobile PCs. 

Products for mobile computers usually have higher profit margin than solutions intended for desktop PCs. Bearing in mind that the market of notebooks is growing rapidly, while the market of desktop PCs is stagnating, Micron’s aggressive DDR-II roadmap is probably very positive for the company.
