Qimonda AG has delivered sample quantities of its new Double Data Rate 3 Small-Outline DIMM (DDR3 SO-DIMM) to 3D graphics supplier ATI.

The new Qimonda DDR3 512MB SODIMM modules process data at transfer rate of 800Mbps and 1067Mbps equivalent to about 40 songs in MP3 quality or 80 high resolution digital images per second. The first notebook PCs equipped with Qimonda DDR3 SO-DIMM memory technology are expected to be available in 2007.

"Qimonda's DDR3 memory module is the first SO-DIMM module operating on just 1.5V targeting a work day equivalent of battery time" said Thomas Seifert, member of the management board of Qimonda.

The Qimonda DDR3 SO-DIMM modules are based on DDR3 512Mbit components which are co-developed by Nanya Technology Corp. and Qimonda and support new functionality to permit its unprecedented processing speeds, such as Dynamic On Die Termination (ODT), which enhances signal integrity on the data bus required to run two DIMMs per channel at very high data rates. The Calibrated Driver Impedance with 34 ohm optimizes the impedance of DDR3 SDRAM output drivers.
