32-bit DDR4 SODIMM upturning the ARM processor market

27-11-2018 | Apacer | Semiconductors

Apacer has launched what it claims to be the world’s first 32-bit DDR4 SODIMM which supports industrial embedded systems using ARM/RISC processors or the latest RISC-V 32-bit processors. The company's 32-bit DDR4 SODIMM delivers an ideal balance between performance, power consumption and cost. Compared with current onboard memory, it provides advantages of flexibility in capacity and space arrangement, enablingb the company to be poised to upturn the market of ARM processor memory and handle this quickly growing IoT wave.

Traditionally, memory used for 32-bit ARM/RISC embedded systems is normally produced as built-in memory, which makes it challenging to meet the needs for smart IoT devices demanding high flexibility in distributing memory capacity and space.

Cindy Huang, director of Apacer Vertical Market Application Business Division, pointed out that the IoT and automotive electronics are anticipated to become key applications in the ARM market. Regarding the current market gap in ARM embedded memory systems and high requirements for performance and bandwidth in the industrial control market, the company has stepped in with this memory, producing an upgradable 32-bit memory solution, whereby the shortcomings of limited memory capacity and performance for built-in memory can be solved.

This technology will be targeted at intelligent applications in automotive electronics, automation systems, server and networking applications, NAS, and edge devices such as gateways.
