Abstract

See full text

A memory TCP loaded with four chips (1-bank 16-bit type) is constructed by a tape of one two-layer wiring layer structure, four chips mounted to this tape, etc. Common signal terminals are arranged on one set of two opposed sides, and an independent signal terminal is arranged on another side. The common signal terminals on the two sides are electrically connected to each other common signal wiring. Further, in a DIMM in which this memory TCP is mounted to front and rear sides of a substrate, plural external terminals are formed on one long side of the rectangular substrate, and the memory TCP is mounted such that the independent signal terminal of the memory TCP is arranged along an arranging direction of these external terminals.
