Densest memory module from Micron Technology

Micron Technology Inc.'s has introduced what it claims is the densest server module, a 16GB device that encompasses 72 2Gbit DDR2 die, packaged as 36 4Gbit TwinDie components.

These were developed on the company's 78nm 6F process node. Micron's TwinDie stacking technology allows fewer and shorter connection routes to the chips, enabling faster access to customer data and ultra-thin form factors.

It is important to think about the popular applications that memory technology powers, according to Micron. Take the Internet for example; online shopping and banking are lucrative businesses collecting and retaining company data every day, which requires extensive amounts of memory to operate.

On pricing, the company said, "As with any new "highest" density product, pricing is within the Rs.9,334-Rs.14,000 range ($200-$300) per component and this 16GB module has 72 components on it. As with our 1Gbit [product], the pricing started relatively high and then came down over time and we expect this module to do the same."

Select customers are evaluating samples of the 16GB modules now and commercial availability is planned in late 2006.
