Elpida will next month begun sampling what it claims it's the world's fastest, most dense 100nm DDR II SDRAM chip. The 1Gb device is designed to operate at an effective bit rate of 533MHz.

The memory maker views the news as a major thumbs-up for its 100nm process technology and its 300mm wafer fab. The company has received a number of big investments from Intel, Kingston Technology and others over the last year, all of which have been mainly used to boost its DDR II efforts.

Elpida noted that its design comprises both DDR and DDR II elements, allowing the same die to be use for either memory type. "Requests for conventional DDR SDRAM can easily be met by switching between DDR and DDR2 via a metal option," said Elpida.

The company said it will convert its 512Mb DDR II chip production to the 100nm process in due course. Volume output of the 1Gb 100nm part is pencilled in for early 2004. ®
