Internet Security Threat Report 2014

The spun off chip division of Infineon said today it has started sampling 256Mbit double data rate (DDR) memory chips to its customers, while chipset firm Via said it will use the DDR PC2100 spec in its future products. Infineon says it was shipping the samples, which feature extensively in future Intel server and workstation chipsets, to satisfy the need for low cost memory. Via, meanwhile, said that it believed that DDR 266MHz memory products will be targeted across servers, desktop systems, notebooks and PDAs. It said it is working with Micron, Samsung, Hyundai, Infineon Hitachi, NEC, Mitsubishi, Nanya, Toshiba and other memory manufacturers, in a bid to make sure its products are compliant with the current JEDEC synchronous memory standards. Wen-chi Chen, CEO and president of Via, said that DDR 266 is a "sensible, evolutionary solution for the PC industry". Via was a major player in the push for the industry to adopt PC-133 SDRAM, which Intel, reluctantly, was forced to adopt in the end. Chen said that the price and bandwidth performance of DDR 266MHz memory allowed it to perform at suitable bandwidth. Samsung, which has a foot in every memory camp, endorsed Via's initiative. Bob Eminian, a VP for Samsung Semiconductors, said: "Because of the existing PC133 SDRAM infrastructure, and the use of the same packaging and processing technologies, DDR 266 presents no significant investment in manufacturing facilities. This means that it will be a simple transition to volume production of DDR SDRAM parts and PC2100 memory modules for the PC market, which we should expect to see in 2H'00." ®
