Rambus Joins JEDEC Committee to Advance Server Memory Systems
SUNNYVALE, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Rambus (News - Alert) Inc. (NASDAQ:RMBS) today announced it has joined JEDEC Committee
40 (JC-40), which focuses on standards and performance test criteria for
integrated circuits in the fast-growing cloud and server-based memory
environments. As part of this membership, Rambus will work with other
memory technology leaders to help define new architectural directions in
server memory that can improve power, performance, and cost and drive
greater market and platform growth across the industry.
"The need for memory systems to meet the increasing demands of the cloud
is growing rapidly and we're continually exploring new memory
architectures that solve real world technology and business challenges,"
said Kevin Donnelly, senior vice president and general manager of the
Memory and Interface Division at Rambus. "JEDEC is a great place for
discussions focusing on technology requirements that will drive greater
performance for the industry at large."
Future meory systems in servers and datacenters will depend on advanced
signaling and application-specific optimization to accelerate the
growing requirements for lower power and higher performance while
managing the associated cost. By focusing on the development of
standards, Rambus and its fellow committee members can work towards
defining new architectures that support the strain that increasing
amounts of data puts on current memory systems.
