As the need to transfer data at increased speeds rises, companies are delivering products to cater to this demand.
Inphi Corporation has published the first 0.95 JEDEC compliant DDR4 register, the Inphi iDDR4RCD-GS02. Offering valuable power savings on the current generation DDR3 registers, this new register supports up to DDR4-2666 memory.
Thanks to the unprecedented demand for real time data, the demand for memory has skyrocketed and bandwidths are reeling under pressure. This consequently consumes more power and brings down the profit margin; not a necessarily happy scenario for companies.
DDR4 register tilts the scale back in favor of data centers by consuming up to 20% less power. The register is equipped with efficient memory components and performance characteristics for Registered DIMM (RDIMM). Inphi's new register also goes easy on cooling, offering a double savings for companies. It also allows system designers to modify the register according to their requirements.
Inphi is known to provide unique products that facilitate end-to-end platform for both transport and signal integrity. The company provides high-speed mixed signal semiconductor products along with solutions for long haul, metro, and enterprise and data center markets.
“Industry experts anticipate widespread transition to DDR4 memory in 2014. Our goal with an early introduction of the new memory register is twofold: enable our ecosystem partners to drive a technology transition and to ensure that the products they offer provide world-class performance and power efficiencies," said Paul Washkewicz, vice president of Marketing, Computing and Storage at Inphi. "Modern computing and mobile technology depends on enterprise platforms with the memory density and performance required to deliver the highest quality end-user experience.”
Recently, the company participated in an event to showcase its latest Isolation Memory Buffer (iMB) technology on Load Reduced DIMMs (LRDIMMs) and DDR4 Registers for next-generation data centers.
