Micron Technology Inc. has announced production sampling of its new 1Gbit DDR2 device fabricated on 68nm DRAM process technology. The new process, coupled with Micron's 6F? technology, has enabled what is touted as the world's smallest production 1Gbit DDR2 memory with a die size of just 56mm?. Mass production of its new 68nm 1Gbit DDR2 products is expected to begin early next year, with DDR3 and other low-power DRAM products expected to follow in the second half of the year.

This new advanced memory technology will be targeted at server, mobile and other computing applications where the benefits of reduced die size, faster speeds and lower power consumption are most critical. Upcoming DDR3 products developed on the new process will allow for speeds up to 1600Mbit/s. The 68nm process also provides approximately 20-percent lower power consumption when compared to previous process generations. Future DDR3 chips designed on the 68nm process will join Micron's Aspen Memory family of energy-efficient products, which are specifically designed for applications where power reduction is desired such as data center servers and notebook computers.
