New alternative for 8Gb DDR3 components

Discussion created by Thorsten Wronski on Aug 6, 2018

Within the last months, one after the other DRAM manufacturer discontinued the production of DDR3/DDR3L memory-components with 8Gb capacity per chip.

Frustrating enough, last week also Micron suddenly announced End-Of-Life of their 8 Gigabit components with part # MT41K1G8SN (x8) and MT41K512M16HA (x16).


Since many NXP i.MX based boards rely on the availability of such 8Gb DDR3 devices, I would like to inform everybody that the manufacturer Intelligent Memory has compatible products and promises long term availability.

x8  Single CS   Part# IM8G08D3FCBG, datasheet here (click the link to the right): Datasheet x8

x16 Single CS  Part# IM8G16D3FCBG, datasheet here: Datasheet x16

Or take a look at the general IM DDR3 webpage here

The components are also available with industrial temperature range.
