Elpida Memory this week announced that it had developed a 2Gb DDR2 Mobile RAM, the industry's smallest LPDDR2 chip. The new DDR2 is expected to become the main product manufactured by the 40nm process line at Elpida's Hiroshima Plant and will be aimed at the next-generation of smartphones, tablets and other similar devices.

The new 2Gb DDR2 Mobile RAM achieves 1066MHz clock-speed amid low operating voltage of 1.2V. According to Elpida, the new 2Gb DDR2 Mobile RAM uses roughly 30% less operating current compared with Elpida's existing 50nm products.

Elpida plans to ship the new DDR2 as a bare chip for MCP and to configure it for PoP and FBGA packages. The company's FBGA packages fully leverage die-stacking technology to provide an extensive line-up of 2Gb to 8Gb products that can meet a variety of customer needs. The data width of memory devices will be 16-bit and 32-bit.

Sample shipments of the new 2Gb DDR2 Mobile RAM will begin in August and mass production is expected to start in September of this year.

The ultra low-power features of Mobile RAM are ideal for use in mobile phones, portable multimedia devices, portable internet-related devices and other handheld device applications. In its development of Mobile RAM Elpida has focused on conserving electric current.
