Kingmax Semiconductor, ranked as the world's eighth-largest third-party DRAM-module supplier by iSuppli for the last two years, is hoping to increase the proportion of DDR2 products in its unit shipments to, at least, 20% by the end of this year. Last week, the company launched its new DDR2-667 modules targeting new generation of the Intel platforms based on i945 and i955 chipsets.
In March, according to Lawrence Chang, vice president of sales and marketing at Kingmax, about 3% of the company's DRAM-module shipments were of DDR2-533 products. "Towards the end of this quarter we are expecting to increase DDR2-533 proportion in our unit shipments to 6-8%, then to 15% at the end of third quarter and to 20% at the end of the year," he said. Chang anticipates DDR2-667 products to take 10% of DDR2 shipments by Kingmax by the end of the second quarter this year, 15% in the third quarter and 30% by the year's end.
