Crucial today announces immediate availability of PC2-3200 (DDR2-400) and
PC2-4300 (DDR2-533) synchronous DRAM (SDRAM) modules on the Crucial Web site at
www.crucial.com. DDR2 is the next evolution
in DDR memory technology and features advancements in voltage, density, and
design to achieve speeds beyond the bus speed limitation of current DDR. Aside
from the advantages of higher speed capabilities, DDR2 features a lower
operating voltage of only 1.8 volts. Lower voltage decreases power consumption
which may increase battery life in portable devices. Unlike current DDR, DDR2 is
packaged using only Ball Grid Array (BGA), resulting in smaller packaging and
better electrical performance. On-die termination gives DDR2 chips the ability
to perform signal termination internally instead of on the motherboard. On-die
termination helps systems run more efficiently, potentially lowering overall
system cost.
