Staktek Announces First ArctiCore Memory Module Utilizing 72 Standard Memory Components
Staktek Holdings announced the first ArctiCore memory module that utilizes 72 standard memory devices in an industry-standard module form-factor. The new module, based on ArctiCore technology, is a Registered Dual In-Line Memory Module (RDIMM) designed for server and workstation applications.
ArctiCore's proprietary high-density architecture enables placement of 72 cost-effective 512Mb memory devices on a module that meets the applicable JEDEC specifications for RDIMM dimensions. This mounting efficiency results in a total module capacity of 4GB of memory. With the memory structured in a 4-rank organization, many applications experience increased system performance when compared to a 2-rank memory module of the same capacity.
- 4GB, 4-rank RDIMM
- Uses 72 standard SDRAM devices with 512Mb capacity each
- Up to DDR2-533 DRAM speeds
- JEDEC-compliant version with 30-mm core and thermally enhanced version with 38-mm core
- ArctiCore module technology utilizing flexible circuit wrapped around a thermal core
ArctiCore is a new module technology designed for improved thermal, mechanical and electrical performance in a variety of high-speed, high-performance electronics applications, including memory module packaging and FLASH-based memory cards. Utilizing a double-sided, multi-layer flexible circuit with embedded interconnect technology folded around a rigid thermal core, ArctiCore is claimed to increase the available area for mounting devices while enhancing thermal management, reliability and thinness compared to conventional module technologies.
Licensing and manufacturing services for the 4GB, 4-rank ArctiCore module are now available to electronics OEMs, memory semiconductor companies and third-party memory module manufacturers.
