  • Hyundai Develops 64M Synchronous DRAM Microchip
  • February 12, 1998 (SEOUL) -- Hyundai Electronics Industries Co., Ltd. developed technology for mass producing high-speed 64Mb synchronous dynamic random access memory (DRAM) microchips, the company said.

    Hyundai said the synchronous DRAM meets the "PC100" requirement, set by Intel Corp., to serve as a standard next-generation chip. The company's chip can handle data faster than conventional ICs because it only requires two signals while conventional 64Mb memory chips need a third signal to handle data.

    Hyundai said the chip is expected to be used in many computers made by the world's leading producers, including IBM Corp., Compaq Computer Corp. and Hewlett-Packard Co.

    The Korean electronics company produces 5 million units of 64Mb DRAMs a month, and will expand its production facilities by the end of 1998 to make double that amount.

    The company said it will increase the proportion of 64Mb synchronous DRAM chips to over 70 percent of its entire 64Mb memory production in the third quarter.
