IDT First to Production Availability with Advanced Memory Buffer Devices for Fully Buffered DIMMs
SaN JOSE, Calif., February 21, 2006 — Underscoring its leadership in timing technology, IDT™ (Integrated Device Technology, Inc.; NASDAQ: IDTI) today announced that its advanced memory buffer (AMB) devices have passed the Intel Corporation validation process and are available to ship in volume. IDT is the first AMB vendor in the industry to achieve this milestone.
Enabling fully buffered dual in-line memory module (FB-DIMM) solutions, AMB devices help increase the speed and memory capacity of servers and workstations, resulting in improved data-processing capabilities. Integrated onto an FB-DIMM, the IDT AMB devices handle the buffering, collection and distribution of data for each DIMM in a system, thus serving as an essential building block for next-generation, high-speed servers and workstations.
“We are pleased to provide leadership in this major server technology transition, extending our track record of excellent support for the server DIMM market,” said Jimmy Lee, senior vice president for the IDT timing solutions group. “As industry adoption of fully buffered dual in-line memory modules increases, our customers and partners can continue to rely on IDT as a first call to satisfy the timing requirements of FB-DIMM technology.”
“The industry is bringing fully buffered DIMM technology to market to deliver superior reliability and increased memory flexibility in servers and workstations,” said Boyd Davis, general manager for Server Platforms Group Marketing at Intel. “To support the transition to FB-DIMMs, it’s essential to have a robust and diverse set of companies providing the underlying building blocks.”
