BOISE, Idaho, June 19, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Micron Technology, Inc., (Nasdaq:MU) today congratulates Daniel Skinner, Director, Mobile DRAM Architecture, on receiving the prestigious JEDEC Award of Excellence in recognition of his leadership as chairman of the LPDDR3 and LPDDR4 Task Groups.
LPDDR3 was essential to meeting the performance and memory density demands of smartphones and tablets and the development of LPDDR4 will continue to drive an enhanced mobile user experience."Since 2011, Dan has provided strong leadership in developing the JEDEC LPDDR3 and LPDDR4 specifications. His dedication, leadership, openness, creativeness, and collaborative style enabled JEDEC to provide LPDDR3 and LPDDR4 solutions in a timely manner to meet market demands," said Hung Vuong, Qualcomm's director of JEDEC standards and JEDEC JC-42.6 chairman. "With his contributions, these technologies will be a success in the industry for years to come." Emerging LPDDR4 Standard The LPDDR4 specification aims to double data rates while lowering energy per bit over previous-generation LPDDR3 devices. The faster I/O data rate delivers speeds up to 3200 Mb/s to enable displays with up to 4k x 2k resolution and 3D graphics on smartphones, tablets and other small form factors. The lower power consumption of LPDDR4 devices also gives designers the flexibility to use smaller batteries in their mobile designs, enabling smaller and thinner mobile devices. The first publication of the LPDDR4 specification is scheduled to be available later this year.
