hynix Semiconductor Inc., today announced the validation of its 128MB and 256MB PC2700 unbuffered DIMM DDR333 SDRAM by Taiwan-based Silicon Integrated Systems Corporation (SiS), a leading core logic and graphics supplier that had previously endorsed the DDR architecture for use in its advanced logic, multimedia and connectivity chipsets.

hynix is one of the first manufacturers of DDR to receive qualification of its DDR modules from SiS, further validating its leadership position in the DDR market. In addition, hynix and SiS are scheduled to jointly promote DDR standard chipsets.

As part of that program, SiS645 chipset-based motherboards loaded with hynix 256MB DDR modules are about to send to over 25 PC trade journals worldwide for evaluation and testing. hynix and SiS expect this program will precipitate third-party product evaluations and benchmarking test reports that will provide their customers with the critical independent data needed to make valid design and purchasing decisions.

“We appreciate hynix’s support in this program to garner independent evaluations and benchmark data on our chipsets,” said Shing Wong, senior vice president of SiS. “This activity will provide useful information to help our customers with third-party validation of our chipsets and the DDR architecture. We will be working closely with memory manufacturers including hynix on the validation of higher density DDR modules to meet the needs of all market segments.” “Validation of our DDR module by SiS is a significant milestone that will help accelerate industry adoption of the DDR architecture by OEMs producing electronic systems for a wide variety of computing, communications and other applications,” said Farhad Tabrizi, vice president of worldwide memory marketing at hynix. “In addition, our cooperative effort to secure independent benchmarking and product evaluations will help our customers make better design and purchasing decisions, which, in turn, will result in less power-hungry devices with increased functionality.

hynix will continue to play a leadership role in driving the DDR standard through activities like these with partners such as SiS.” About SiS SiS was founded in 1987, and located in Hsin Chu Science-based Industrial Park in Northern Taiwan. The company focuses on developing, manufacturing and marketing leading-edge logic products, including core logic, multimedia and connectivity.
