Hynix Semiconductor Inc. announced Sunday that it has developed the world's fastest and smallest 1-gigabyte mobile DRAM and plans to start mass production in early 2008.
The new chip, mainly used in mobile phones, operates at the maximum speed of 200 MHz and is capable of processing 1.6 gigabytes of data per second, the world's second-largest computer memory chip maker said.
"Of the 1-gigabyte DRAMs developed so far, it is the smallest and fastest," Hynix said in a statement. "It can be applied to ultra-small electronic devices and memory products."
The new DRAM also has a "one-chip solution" that allows its data processing speed and method to be adapted to a device using the chip, the company said.
Hynix said demand for the new chip is surging as handheld devices are getting smaller and faster and their capacity is becoming larger.Hynix, RAM, DRAM, 1-Gigabyte DRAM, Mobile DRAM, Hardware, Sotrage, Memory
