Micron Introduces New Memory Device Supporting Intel Processor-Based Tablets and Netbooks

New 2-Gigabit 50-Nanometer DDR2 Memory Provides Key Benefits to the Upcoming Intel® Atom(TM) Platform

BOISE, Idaho, (PresseBox) - Micron Technology, Inc. (Nasdaq:MU) today announced a new 2gigabit (Gb) 50nanometer (nm) DDR2 memory device to support the upcoming Intel® Atom(TM) platform for tablet and netbook personal computers, codenamed "Oak Trail." The small form factor, highdensity and lowpower consumption of the 2Gb 50nm DDR2 makes it an ideal memory solution for the tablet PC market where size and battery life are key features.

The transition of Micron's 2Gb DDR2 product to the more advanced 50nm process node demonstrates the company's continued commitment and ongoing investment in technologies that meet market demand. In addition to the increase in density from 1Gb to 2Gbbased components, the move to the 50nm process inherently provides improved power savings and a smaller memory footprint.

"Micron's 2Gb 50nm DDR2 device is the ideal memory companion for Intel's upcoming Intel® Atom(TM) processorbased 'Oak Trail' platform," said Robert Feurle, Micron's vice president of DRAM Marketing. "Given its lowpower demands, maximum density and high performance, it is wellsuited for the thriving tablet market. Additionally, Micron is committed to this 50nm product line and looks forward to providing ongoing support for customers' innovations around this technology."

"The upcoming Intel® Atom(TM) 'Oak Trail' platform is optimized specifically for tablets and sleek netbook designs," said Erik Reid, director, Mobile Product Group at Intel. "With its low power and performance for multitasking, rich media and the Internet, the features and benefits of 'Oak Trail,' in combination with Micron's 2Gb 50nm DDR2 provide a powerful solution for our joint customers' design needs."

Micron has maintained a highlevel of quality in delivering DDR2 memory for customers, offering premium performance and multiple configurations, densities, and package options. The new 50nm DDR2 product line includes:

- Multiple density options available in 512 megabit (Mb) to 2Gb components in X4/X8/X16 packages
- Highcapacity module configurations ranging from 1GB to 4GB UDIMMS and SODIMMS
- Up to 800 megatransfers per second (MT/s) providing a migration path for higher bus speeds
- Supporting 1.55volt for reducing memory system power demands


Micron is expected to begin sampling its 2Gb 50nm DDR2 device in September 2010 with production planned for Q4 2010.
