|Micron Technology, Inc., Launches Family of Mobile DDR Devices
Providing Low Standby Power and Improved Stackability|
BOISE, ID - Micron Technology,
Inc., today launched a family of Mobile DDR devices, with product samples of multiple densities now available.
Micron’s Mobile DDR product family boasts a new architecture with Endur-IC™ technology specifically designed for
mobile systems, and an enhanced feature set that delivers aggressive power specifications, superior bandwidth
performance, and increased reliability over standard DRAM.
Micron’s Mobile DDR products exceed the current Joint
Electron Device Engineering Council (JEDEC) standard and provide leading performance with shorter latency, higher
speeds, full page burst, multiple addressing options, and according to leading customers, the industry’s lowest
standby current. Micron leverages its stacked DRAM process technology to achieve the complete industrial temperature
range, -40-degrees Celsius to ódegrees Celsius.
“There are numerous features derived from
Micron’s new architecture that translate to system performance benefits for our customers, especially those
customers requiring thin die specifications,” said Deb Matus, Micron’s Product Marketing Manager for Mobile Memory.
“Micron’s Mobile DDR parts demonstrate great immunity to failures arising during the manufacturing and packaging
processes, making them the ideal device for die-based applications, multichip packages (MCPs), systems-in-a-package
(SiPs), Package on Package (PoP) and other stacked solutions. Additionally, mobile phone manufacturers benefit from
the extended battery life in standby mode given our Endur-IC technology.”
As an innovative
technology from Micron, Endur-IC technology is designed to address the rugged demands of the mobile market. Endur-IC
technology, a combination of Micron’s advanced process technology and a unique implementation of other design
methodologies, provides distinct advantages to our customers in terms of low power, high quality, high reliability,
and overall robustness.
Micron developed the enhanced features of this new product family to
target growing mobile applications, such as; feature-rich smart phones, digital still cameras, and MP3 players by
incorporating advanced processes, including Endur-IC technology. Endur-IC technology allows for a reduction of
refresh current in many applications, which leads to extended battery life in standby mode. Customers also benefit
from temperature compensated self refresh (TCSR) that automatically adjusts refresh according to temperature changes
in the device. For further power savings, the partial array self refresh (PASR) feature allows user control of
refresh conditions to extend battery life. All of these features are available to customers without requiring
special software or coding, while at the same time providing compatibility with many other suppliers’ parts.
“Understanding the unique memory specifications and packaging requirements of our mobile system
customers, Micron developed a DRAM architecture optimized for this market segment,” said Achim Hill, Micron’s Senior
Director of Marketing for Mobile Memory. “Achieving high speed performance, low latency and suitability for various
stacking options without negatively impacting device quality and reliability were specifically emphasized in this
major design thrust. And, to facilitate the design-in process with handset OEMs, we are working with leading mobile
processor manufacturers to ensure compatibility between our 512Mb Mobile DDR memory and their respective devices.
With the expansion of Micron’s mobile product offering, we now provide industry leading volatile memory solutions
with both Mobile DDR as well as our proven CellularRAM™ products.”
Several configurations of
Micron’s Mobile DDR devices are available today: 128Mb in x16 and 512Mb in x16 and x32 configurations, while the
availability of 256Mb devices is scheduled for the second half of 2005. Visit https://www.micron.com/mobileddr for

Micron also supports a growing family of Mobile SDR devices. Reference
