Smart Modular Launches VLP And Standard 4GB Four-Rank DDR2-667 CoolFlex Registered DIMMs
SMART Modular Technologies has launched two new 4GB four-rank DDR2-667 registered DIMMs. Designed for use in blade servers and high-performance computing (HPC) applications, the new cost-effective modules are built using mainstream 512Mb DDR2-667/533 devices. These 512Mb devices are expected to remain in the sweet spot through 2009 according to iSuppli Corp.
Optimized for HPC applications, one of the two 4GB CoolFlex registered DIMM (P/N: SG572124AG8P0IL) features an industry-standard 1.18" height. Manufactured using standard, off-the-shelf 512Mb DDR2-667 BGAs, this 4GB module is configured as 512Mx72 with 72 placements of 128Mx4 BGAs.
The other 4GB four-rank CoolFlex registered DIMM (P/N: SG572124EG8P0IL1) leverages a very low profile or VLP (0.72") package. Configured as 512Mx72 using 1Gb dual-die-package DDPs that are based on 128x4 die, these DIMMs are well suited for use in mainstream blade server applications with up to eight vertical sockets. For example, by using these 4GB VLP DDR2-533 registered DIMMs, OEMs can populate blade servers with up to 32GB of high-speed memory.
SMART utilizes RoHs compliant CoolFlex foldable PCB architecture, dual-die-package DDP technologies and mainstream 512Mb DDR2-667 devices to offer these 4GB four-rank DDR2-667/533 registered DIMMs.
