Samsung Electronics said it has released samples of synchronous Ram memory chips, aimed at the high speed networking market.
The memories, called NtRam are intended for network switching applications and are 8Mbit parts that run at 150MHz. The company said it will release a 16Mbit part in 1999.
The 8Mbit samples cost $79.85, and operate at 2.5volts, although Samsung is also selling a 3.3volt part.
Toshiba and NEC have joined Samsung's NtRam initiative and will also manufacture and market similar products.
