Energy-saving memory

Micron Technology is developing low-voltage memory modules that can help save electricity in data centers, said Bill Lauer, the company's senior director of marketing. The proposed Aspen Memory line of DDR2 modules will require only 1.5 volts rather than the typical 1.8 volts.

Meanwhile, upcoming DDR3 modules could require only 1.3 volts. The company has not announced ship dates for the new technology because it is waiting for Intel and Advanced Micro Devices to build microprocessors that support the modules.
