July 12, 2007 – Qimonda AG says it has started sampling ultralow-power 512Mbit DRAM devices for mobile applications, using a 75nm low-power trench technology, that consume just 20% of power as equivalent-density standard DRAMs. Target end-devices include smart/feature phones, portable GPS, digital cameras, and MP3 players.
The Mobile-RAM, available as a DDR and SDR via bond option, comes with two interfaces (x16 and x32) and a single/dual sided pad to fit any component, multichip package, or system-in-package. Samples are now available as component or known-good-die wafers.
Ayad Abul-Ella, VP of Qimonda’s consumer and mobile business unit, noted in a statement that the 75nm-based Mobile-RAM s the first of an entirely new product family to be rolled out over the next six months.
