May 24, 2005

Elpida Memory, Inc., Japan's leading global supplier of Dynamic Random Access Memory (DRAM), today announced its 512 Megabyte DDR2 Small-Outline Dual In-line Memory Modules (SO-DIMMs). The modules utilize next-generation 512 Megabit DDR2 SDRAM devices that realize a 30% reduction in IDD0 current (155mA to 110mA) compared to previous generation devices to achieve lower-power operation, improved thermal performance and extended battery life in portable applications including notebooks.

Elpida's 512 Megabyte, low-power, small-outline modules are based on DDR2 SDRAM devices with a reduced operating current," said Jun Kitano, director of Technical Marketing for Elpida Memory (USA). "Therefore, our SO-DIMMs meet customer demand for better thermals-an essential characteristic for notebooks where board space is a premium and extended battery life is crucial."
