  • Samsung Electronics Introduces Sample DDR-SDRAM Chip
  • August 25, 1998 (SEOUL) -- Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. said that it will begin production of its next-generation high-speed double-data-rate (DDR) SDRAM microchip in October.
    Samsung said it has supplied samples of the product to U.S. computer makers Hewlett-Packard Co. and IBM Corp., as well as to Hitachi Ltd. of Japan.

    The international market for next-generation high-speed memory microchips comprises two main products, Rambus DRAM (RDRAM) and DDR-SDRAM chips.

    Meanwhile, Samsung Electronics recently produced samples of RDRAMs, and it now has the capacity to mass produce both RDRAMs and SDRAMs.

    "The DDR-SDRAM has a data processing speed of 266MHz and is expected to be adopted in data communications products, including workstations, due to its small size, low power consumption and higher data transmission speed," a company official said.
