In support of our customer's requirements, Virtium has designed a cost-effective module that saves board real estate, and allows designers to populate two 4GB modules side-by-side in a dual socket layout
Rancho Santa Margarita, CA (Vocus) October 26, 2010
Virtium Technology Inc., a leading designer and manufacturer of memory modules for specialized computers in demanding environments, today announced the release of its new 4 gigabyte (GB) DDR3 Registered Mini-DIMM in the Very-Low Profile (VLP) 0.72-inch form factor that features a minimal of 0.140-inch or 3.56mm module thickness. Virtium’s new 4GB VLP Registered Mini-DIMM module is innovatively designed using mainstream 2Gbit DDR3 DRAM monolithic package components that meet customer needs for high density, smaller size and lower cost modules. To improve system reliability and Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF), Virtium has applied a new layout technique that reduces the module’s overall thickness and enables greater airflow through the components and throughout the system. The Virtium 4GB VLP Registered Mini-DIMM is an optimal solution for a broad range of high-availability, critical system applications that include AdvancedTCA blades, PCI Express RAID cards, Ethernet switches and routers.
“In support of our customer’s requirements, Virtium has designed a cost-effective module that saves board real estate, and allows designers to populate two 4GB modules side-by-side in a dual socket layout,” said Phan Hoang, vice president of research and development at Virtium Technology. “Virtium is committed to developing the highest reliability products for our customers. By using non-stacking, high density monolithic components that provide high MTBF, our VLP Registered Mini-DIMM gives designers a worry-free design compared to alternative modules built with BGA stack or dual die packaging (DDP) DRAM components.”
