Transcend Releases 2GB DDR2-800 ECC Unbuffered, DDR2-667 VLP ECC Registered Memory
Transcend Information announced the arrival of its 2GB DDR2-800 ECC Unbuffered memory modules built with ECC (Error Correcting Code), which monitors the data that gets transferred in and out of memory and corrects any errors found. This decreases the risk of system operation errors, while at the same time increasing system reliability.
Transcend's 2GB DDR2-800 ECC Unbuffered modules use eight-layer PCBs and meet JEDEC (the Joint Electron Device Engineering Council) standards. Each DIMM is made of eighteen 128Mx8 DDR2 FBGA chips. The modules are backed by the lifetime warranty.
Another novelty is professional-grade 2GB DDR2-667 VLP (Very Low Profile) ECC Registered memory modules. At less than 3/4 of an inch high, these modules are 40% lower than standard memory, making them appropriate for use in 1U (or thinner) blade servers and embedded systems with space restrictions. Thanks to its low profile design, the VLP DIMM can be installed in vertical memory slots rather than the traditional 45-degree angle server memory slots.
Transcend's 2GB DDR2-667 VLP Registered DIMMs also use eight-layer PCBs with a height of 0.72 inch which still meets JEDEC (the Joint Electron Device Engineering Council) standards, and can be used in low-profile and normal-height systems. The 2GB VLP DIMMs are made of eighteen 256Mx4 DDR2 FBGA chips.
As opposed to traditional server memory with standard ECC, Transcend's 2GB DDR2-667 VLP Registered modules incorporate IBM's advanced new Chipkill technology. With Chipkill, DIMMs are able to check and correct multi-bit errors from a single memory chip, whereas standard ECC is only able to correct one-bit errors.
These VLP modules are also backed by the lifetime warranty.
