Science Update: Big bytes
The project to develop the huge 256-megabit chips, known as Dynamic Random Access Memories (DRAMs), will start with a year-long study looking at the possibilities for developing common technology for the chips. The companies claim the new chip will be capable of storing 256 million bits of information - the equivalent of 11,200 typed pages of text.
Today's computers commonly use four-megabit memory chips; the next step is to use 16- and 64- megabit DRAMs. TI and Hitachi are already working together to develop this next generation of memories, and have already begun to produce prototypes of the 64-megabit chip.
