Micron samples PC2700 DIMMs

Conforms to new JEDEC standard

Micron today claims an industry first, with the release of engineering samples of "PC2700 DDR SDRAM TSOP-based unbuffered DIMM modules based on the newly revised JEDEC standard".

The new module features something called stub resistors on the addressing/command line, improving signal integrity at very high modules at high frequencies, and enabling it to meet the new JEDEC requirements.

Micron is running the PC2700 module through SiS and VIA DDR333 validation programmes - and has received "positive feedback", the DRAM maker reports.

Micron in turn has added PC2700 testing to its mobo testing, and says the SiS S551 motherboard has already passed validation muster. You can find out more about this test here.

Micron is not publishing prices for the engineering samples. You have to call the company's marketing department in America to find out how to order the part. ®
