Samsung Electronics announced that it has developed a prototype fusion memory chip, OneDRAM, a 133MHz 512Mb device. The Samsung OneDRAM can decrease the time that it takes to transfer data between processors via a a dual-port approach. The OneDRAM can also reduces power consumption by 30 percent. It is designed for mobile devices like PMP,PDAs.

Due to rapidly increasing demand for multimedia features in mobile applications, designers have been specifying the use of two separate processors – a communication processor and a media processor. The new OneDRAM will channel data between the processors through a single chip eliminating the need to also specify DRAM and SRAM chips for buffer memory.
