Micron Technology announced that its DDR-II chips with all densities had been validated by Intel Corporation. The company, who now produces DDR-II DRAMs in quantities, will have an advantage over competitors, as it is yet the only memory firm to validate practically the whole next-generation memory lineup with the world’s leading chipmaker.

Validation and production availability of all 256Mb, 512Mb and 1Gb DDR-II chips provides the foundation for multiple module solutions for notebook, desktop, and server computing products.

“Micron already announced volume production of DDR-II devices and modules,” said Terry Lee, Executive Director of Advanced Technology and Strategic Marketing for Micron’s Computing and Consumer Group.

“Intel Platform validation of 1Gb DDR-II components solidifies our leadership position, allowing us to provide the highest density DDR-II products available to our server customers. This gives Micron the broadest DDR-II product offering available today for meeting the memory requirements of notebook, desktop, and server computing products,” the Micron’s spokesperson said.

Other memory makers, such as Samsung and Elpida, are also expected to validate their DDR-II components with Intel by the time the latter unveils its new desktop and server core-logic sets.

VIA Technologies and Silicon Integrated Systems also certify DDR memory components. It is highly possible that they will also launch DDR-II validation initiatives by the time their DDR-II-supporting products are in the market.
