IDT Low-Power DDR3 Register Selected By Invensas for High Performance Memory Modules
SAN JOSE, Calif., September 13, 2011 – Integrated Device Technology, Inc. (IDT®; NASDAQ: IDTI), the Analog and Digital Company™ delivering essential mixed-signal semiconductor solutions, today announced that its second generation, low-power DDR3 register was selected by Invensas Corporation to validate their innovative multi-die face-down (xFD™) memory stacking technology on high-performance Registered Dual Inline Memory Modules (RDIMMs). IDT’s DDR3 register was selected because it is the fastest in the industry, enabling speeds up to DDR3-2133 while minimizing register power consumption and delivering maximum density for next generation server and storage equipment.
The IDT SSTE32882KA1 DDR3 register regenerates the address, command and clock signals from the motherboard channel to the module DRAMs, minimizing drift, jitter and skew of these signals and ensuring the DRAMs operate reliably even at extreme speeds. It offers active power savings of at least 15% compared with other registers and supports speeds up to DDR3-2133 across standard and low voltages. The combination of the Invensas xFD stacking technology and IDT’s register was validated by Invensas using dual face down (DFD) stacked DRAMs in a quad rank RDIMM configuration.
“We are pleased that Invensas has chosen IDT’s next generation DDR3 register for their DFD-based memory modules,” said Rami Sethi, director of marketing for the Enterprise Computing Division at IDT. “The explosive growth of cloud-based services continues to drive memory requirements in the data center and we at IDT are excited to leverage our superior performance and power consumption into innovative solutions for this market.”
“The Invensas’s xFD technology enables enterprise server manufacturers to include more memory at faster speeds,” said Simon McElrea, president, Invensas Corporation. “The excellent combination of performance and power was the leading reason behind Invensas’s decision to use IDT’s DDR3 register for our validation modules.”
As the industry leader for memory interface solutions, IDT’s DDR3 register is an essential building block for advanced memory subsystems in servers, workstations and communications equipment. To see the device in action, visit IDT’s booth at the Server Design Summit on November 29-30.
