Accelerating the implementation of DDR5 industrial memory for AIoT and more

10-05-2022 | Apacer | Semiconductors

Apacer is launching JEDEC Raw Card Revision 1.0 mass production versions of DDR5 UDIMM, RDIMM, SODIMM, ECC UDIMM and ECC SODIMM industrial memory. As one of the first memory module manufacturers able to start mass production of DDR5, the gap between the company and its competitors is expected to grow. Its JEDEC 1.0 mass production version of DDR5 industrial memory can speed the implementation of DDR5 industrial applications and continue to propel the launch of high-end applications such as AIoT, servers, data centres, and HPC.

Currently, all the DDR5 products available are still at the engineering level of development. The company is mass producing a full range of DDR5 industrial memory which is in accordance with the JEDEC version 1.0 specification, significantly enhancing product stability and reliability. The module timing definitions and transmission speeds also meets the latest JEDEC JESD79-5A DDR5 SDRAM standard to further shorten the data access latency for optimal performance.

Key memory parameters saved in the SPD of industrial memory are vulnerable to irregular fluctuations in power supply, human operation errors and motherboard design problems. These can affect the resilience of an industrial system and even generate issues with proper boot procedures. The company announced a comprehensive upgrade of the DDR5 industrial memory series to counteract these issues, offering SPD Write Protection technology for free. This reduces the risk of downtime induced by SPD data deletion or alteration, and satisfies the challenging conditions of industrial applications while enhancing system reliability.
