Debuting as the industry's first 0.13-micron 256 Mb DRAM, the Elpida devices is half the size of equivalent products based on 0.18-micron technology. This memory chip will be available as both a synchronous DRAM (SDRAM) and as a double data rate (DDR) SDRAM, with low latency and high data-transfer rates. The devices are stated as having low metal resistance that will enable nigh-speed memory core functions and they use an advanced hemispherical gain (HSG) structure. It is expected that higher density SDRAM, DDR SDRAM, Rambus DRAM, and virtual channel memory products will developed using this process in the near future. The Elpida is sampling now and production quantities are expected to ramp up in the spring of 2001.
