Keywords:Buried Wordline  memory modules  DDR3  46nm 

Qimonda AG has created the first operational DDR3 Buried Wordline memory modules based on the latest 46nm technology. If implemented in 46nm, the number of chips will triple compared with the current 75nm technology, and thus will increase production efficiency 200 per cent, says the company. Furthermore, preliminary results show that power consumption will be reduced by up to 75 per cent.

According to Qimonda, the Buried Worldline technology will become a key element of its global restructuring and cost-reduction programme. Moreover, in order to streamline further its production capacities, Qimonda will be ramping down operations at the Richmond 300mm facility in the United States. Approximately 1,500 employees are affected by this restructuring measure.
