Elpida today began shipping 1Gb DDR 2 chips, just days after Micron said it too had begun offering 1Gb parts.

Elpida is offering the chips on 2GB registered DIMMs. The company promised to make 4GB DIMMs and 2GB SO-DIMMs based on the 1Gb chip available "soon".

The memory maker said the chips were produced at its 300mm fabrication facility in Hiroshima, using its 100nm process technology. The parts use a 68-ball FBGA package.

The 1Gb devices transfer data at up to 533Mbps and feature 1.8V power supply with a CAS latency (CL) of 3, 4, 5 and a burst length of 4, 8. They also offer Off-Chip Driver (OCD) Impedance Adjustment and On-Die termination (ODT) for improved signal quality, Elpida said.

The company received investments totaling more than $170 million from both Intel and Kingston Technology earlier this year to fund its development and production of DDR 2 chips. ®
