London: Elpida Memory, a manufacturer of Dynamic RAMs (DRAM) has announced that it will start sampling a 2GB DDR2 Mobile RAM next month. The DDR2 Mobile RAM is targeted towards smartphones, netbooks and mobile internet devices.

The company is using its low-voltage and low power consumption technology for the part that will operate at 1.2 volts and to achieve a data transfer rate of 800Mbits/second, reports EE Times. Elpida says the part needs as little as 1/16th the power consumption when on standby, compared with other same-density and same-speed DDR2 products.

The RAM comes as a bare chip for use in SiP (System in Package), MCP (Multi-chip Package) and other multi-layer packages or it can be packaged for a PoP (Package on Package) configuration. Volume production is slated for the first half of 2010.
