[The Chosun Ilbo, April 7 2008] Hynix Develops Faster Large-Capacity Chip

Hynix said Sunday it has developed a new 1-gigabit memory chip called LPDDR2 which boasts the world’s fastest data transfer capability. LPDDR2 is short for low-power double-data-rate memory chips.

The new chip can be activated on an electrical voltage of 1.2 and transfers 800 megabits per second, making it capable to send 50 million Korean letters per second. A Hynix DDR chip developed in August last year transfers 400 megabits per second at 1.8 volt.
