Kingmax PC2100 DDR SDRAM - Kingmax PC2100 - Page 2

Kingmax made a huge name for themselves when they first started making their TinyBGA memory modules. Now they've done it with their DDR line as well and Cameron "Sov" Johnson is here to let you know if they were successful. So come join the fun and see for yourself if Kingmax has what it takes to jump into the DDR market in our latest review of their PC2100 DDR RAM.

From the picture on Page 1 we can see the entire DIMM module, measuring in at around 1.1 inches. This module is quite small for DDR, and is mostly due to the TinyBGA packaging used. The next picture (above) shows the TinyBGA chips used by Kingmax. The sample we received was a Double Sided 256MB model, showing that the 128MB is only single sided. The fewer modules needed, the better.

 

These chips are made in a fabrication plant in Taiwan called Kingpack, which do all the actual work on the chips themselves. These fully ready chips are then tested for speed and then sent to Kingmax construction plant where each chip is placed on a PCB and sold off as memory.

 

 

The above picture shows the labeling Kingmax places on the memory to show its speed, make, model and size.
