Micron to push high end Rambus memory Q3

Samples 356MHz/400MHz parts

Chip manufacturer Micron claimed it will deliver fast and competitively priced .18 micron Rambus memory in the autumn. But in a company statement, Micron stressed that it will also support competing products including PC-133 parts, to its customers. The company said that it has started samplying 356MHz and 400MHz chips at 128Mbit and 144Mbit capacities with data rates of 712MHz and 800MHz respectively. Micron said that its RIMMs (Rambus inline memory modules) use a proprietary fine pitch ball grid array packaging technology. Intel is an investor in both Micron and Rambus. ®
