4-Gigabyte DDR2 DIMMs are 30% thinner than conventional modules

Elpida Memory Inc. is sampling 4-Gigabyte DDR2 (double data rate) registered dual in-line memory modules (DIMM) that it claims are 30% thinner than standard JEDEC products due its unique stacked FBGA packaging technology. Aimed at server applications, the 4-Gbyte DDR2 DIMMs can deliver up to 32-Gbytes of memory in an eight-slot server platform, with system data transfer rates up to 8.4-Gbytes/s.
