Hyundai heeft in een press release aangekondigd dat hun 200MHz Single Data Rate SDRAM chippies vanaf heden verkrijgbaar zijn. Dit spul is leuk om op videokaarten te prikken:
Hyundai MicroElectronics today announced availability of 2Mx32 200MHz SDRAMs.
These new parts are the highest speed Single Data Rate (SDR) SDRAMs available to date. The devices already have several design wins and are being delivered in production quantities. This announcement further boosts Hyundai MicroElectronics' leadership position as the vendor of choice for computer graphics OEMs and high performance point-to-point applications.
``Hyundai's 200MHz SDRAM device offers a big advantage by using the same protocols and interface as the current SDRAM,'' said Mark Ellsberry, vice president of marketing at Hyundai Electronics America. ``In addition, this part runs at a very fast 200MHz which enables our customers to get yet another performance boost out of their current SDRAM designs.''
This announcement adds yet another high-bandwidth, high-performance product to Hyundai's graphics product portfolio, thereby giving Hyundai the most complete line of high-performance graphics products on the market. In addition to the 2Mx32, 200MHz SDRAM, Hyundai offers the highest speed 4Mx16 Double Data Rate (DDR) parts, which operate at 333MHz data rate. Furthermore, Hyundai is shipping 200MHz 1Mx16 and 166MHz 4Mx16 SDR parts. ``When it comes to graphics DRAM, or any DRAM, it's one-stop shopping at Hyundai,'' noted Mario Martinez, senior marketing manager at Hyundai Electronics America.
``We are very pleased with Hyundai's graphic product offering. Their high performance memory products allow us to create graphics cards that operate at a whole new level,'' said Robert Lafleur Director of Hardware Engineering at Matrox.
The 200MHz SDRAM device is fabricated on a 0.22-micron process optimized for 3.3V operation. All the inputs and outputs are compatible with the LVTTL interface which is the standard interface for SDRAM. The design uses a standard 4-bank architecture that makes it compatible with other SDRAMs, and the internal DRAM core operates at 200MHz which allows the pipeline to operate freely without the restriction of a `2n' rule.
Price and Availability
The 2Mx32, 200MHz (HY57V653220BTC-5) SDRAM is available now in production quantities. Price (in production quantities) is about $18. The HY57V653220BTC-5 comes in an industry and JEDEC-standard 400mil 86-pin TSOP package.
