Volgens EETimes Semiconductor News is er groeiend support voor Double Data Rate DRAMS, de concurrent van Rambus DRAM:
More than 20 memory-industry players have joined an effort to promote double-data-rate (DDR) DRAMs. The new body, Advanced Memory International Inc., grew out of the remains of SLDRAM Inc., which quietly slipped from the limelight this year after trying to promote the SLDRAM format.
[...]DDR-2 uses the memory-cell designs seen in both standard SDRAM and DDR DRAM chips, but it will feature some I/O designs to facilitate faster data rates. As with the SLDRAM chips and unlike Rambus memory, Rhoden said, the architecture will be offered as an open standard to the DRAM industry.
Though prototypes of SLDRAM were delivered last year to several of SLDRAM Inc.'s member-companies, the technology failed to catch on in the mainstream memory market. The formation of AMI2 and the move to cannibalize the technology into next-generation DDR designs could be the final nail in the SLDRAM coffin.
