Agere Systems Inc. and Samsung Semiconductor Inc. (SSI) have agreed to collaborate on the development of 400Mbps Network-DRAM devices aimed to provide network design engineers with a cost-effective solution for relieving data traffic bottlenecks in next-generation networks.

Samsung's Network-DRAM is a memory technology specifically tailored for broadband networking applications, such as 10GbE and OC-192 SONET which require fast and random data access. The technology will be used with Agere's PayloadPlus family of programmable network processors for deep packet processing.

"Network-DRAM reduces latency and bus turnaround time, which are important in achieving fast random access time in today's telecommunications and networking systems," said Tom Quinn, Samsung Semiconductor's VP of marketing.
