Hynix offers up first 2Gb mobile DRAM

Hynix offers up first 2Gb mobile DRAM

Hynix announced today that they have developed the first ever 2 gigabit or 256 megabyte mobile RAM chip in the world, effectively expanding their current Mobile Memory line. This was made possible by using a 54 nanometer manufacturing process.

This new process has allowed Hynix to double their past capacity. This has also allowed for an increase in performance, which clocks in at 400 megabites per second at a 1.2V power supply and up to 1.6 gigabytes per second with a 32-bit I/O.

The new Hynix chips will no doubt be used in new mobile devices like cell phones, PMPs and more. Even MIDs and UMPCs might be able to benefit from this increased DRAM. So now we're looking to the first half of next year, when production will begin to roll out and when these maxed out chips will be included in consumer products.

Elecom Class-6 SDHC is waterproof

Elecom Class-6 SDHC is waterproof

We’ve seen plenty of flash storage based electronics devices with waterproof feature, hardly the storage itself. The Japanese looks to break the trend with the introduction of waterproof SDHC memory cards. A SDHC card is more likely to float if it’s accidentally dropped in the water but the Elecom-made SDHC is more than H20-friendly; as a IPX7 compliant device, it will withstand accidental immersion in one meter of water for up to 30 minutes.

Besides waterproof; the Elecom is Class-6 standard, meaning it offers real-time recording directly to the card with a guaranteed minimum write speed of 6MB/sec and a data transfer rate of up to 15MB/sec.

Elecom waterproof SDHC is available in 4GB and 8GB capacity. Mum’s the word on pricing information but it is slated to ship in December.
