Hynix Semiconductor, the South Korean manufacturer previously known as Hyundai Electronics, announced the development of “the world’s first mobile 1Gb DDR2 DRAM using 54nm process technology”.
The new 1Gb DDR2 mobile chip can run at a maximum speed of 1066MHz and it’s eco-friendly, consuming just 50% of the energy required by the previous generation mobile DDR chips.
Its attributes and the fact that it complies with the JEDEC standards make the new memory chip perfect for high-end smartphones, as well as for netbooks and mobile internet devices (MIDs).
Hynix said it would start shipping the 1Gb DDR2 chip in the second half of 2009.
