Micron Introduces Very Low Profile MiniDIMM Modules
Micron introduced new PC2-5300 and PC2-6400 DDR2 VLP (Very Low Profile) registered and unbuffered mini dual-inline memory modules (MiniDIMMs) for the networking and communications equipment markets. Available in densities of 256MB, 512MB, and 1GB, the reduced height form factor (18.29mm) of Micron´s VLP MiniDIMMs enables designers to integrate more modules in the same or less board space, thereby improving performance in networking servers, routers, switches, gateways, hubs and bridges.
The low profile of Micron’s VLP DDR2 MiniDIMMs enables vertical socketing on the board, in contrast to traditional angled memory sockets, and effectively reduces the total memory space footprint. According to the company, this form factor can improve air flow and thus system reliability. VLP MiniDIMMs are backward compatible with existing MiniDIMM sockets, enabling engineers to receive immediate benefits without any product redesign.
The PC2-5300 and PC2-6400 DDR2 VLP registered and unbuffered MiniDIMM production samples are currently available, and volume production is expected in Q4´2005.
