Hybrid Memory Cube Consortium Heralds 2013 As Turning Point For High-Performance Memory ICs, Gains Rapid Consensus For Final Specification And Decision To Renew Consortium

BOISE, Idaho and SEOUL, Korea, April 2, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- More than 100 developer and adopter members of the Hybrid Memory Cube Consortium (HMCC) today announced they've reached consensus for the global standard that will deliver a much-anticipated, disruptive memory computing solution. Developed in only 17 months, the final specification marks the turning point for designers in a wide range of segments—from networking and high-performance computing, to industrial and beyond—to begin designing Hybrid Memory Cube (HMC) technology into future products.

A major breakthrough with HMC is the long-awaited utilization of advanced technologies to combine high-performance logic with state-of-the-art DRAM. With this first HMC milestone reached so quickly, consortium members have elected to extend their collaborative effort to achieve agreement on the next generation of HMC interface standards.

"The consensus we have among major memory companies and many others in the industry will contribute significantly to the launch of this promising technology," said Jim Elliott, Vice President, Memory Planning and Product Marketing, Samsung Semiconductor, Inc. "As a result of the work of the HMCC, IT system designers and manufacturers will be able to get new green memory solutions that outperform other memory options offered today."

"This milestone marks the tearing down of the memory wall," said Robert Feurle, Micron's Vice President for DRAM Marketing. "The industry agreement is going to help drive the fastest possible adoption of HMC technology, resulting in what we believe will be radical improvements to computing systems and, ultimately, consumer applications."

"HMC is a very special offering currently on the radar," said JH Oh, Vice President, DRAM Product Planning and Enabling Group, SK hynix Inc. "HMC brings a new level of capability to memory that provides exponential performance and efficiency gains that will redefine the future of memory."

As envisioned, HMC capabilities will leap beyond current and near-term memory architectures in the areas of performance, packaging and power efficiency.
