The Milestone Comes as Market Demand Grows for the Enhanced Performance, Scalability and Power Efficiency Promised by DDR4 Memory
SAN JOSE, Calif., July 15, 2014 – Integrated Device Technology, Inc. (IDT®) (NASDAQ: IDTI) announced today that it has shipped over 1 million DDR4 registers, the result of growing demand for the next generation of DRAM modules needed for the coming Intel® Xeon™ processor E5-2600 v3 platform. IDT’s DDR4 register is part of a chipset that includes data buffers and thermal sensors with serial presence detect (SPD). Together, they collectively enable the complete range of unbuffered dual inline memory modules (UDIMMs), registered DIMMs (RDIMMs) and load-reduced DIMMs (LRDIMMs) needed to power the next generation of enterprise and data center servers.
In addition to providing industry-leading performance, power efficiency and reliability at the device level, the IDT solution includes a software suite that enables server and storage manufacturers to uniquely validate and optimize their platforms.
“The server and storage markets are gearing up for a memory technology transition that occurs once every five to six years,” said Rami Sethi, vice president and general manager of memory interface products at IDT. “As the only memory interface supplier to offer a complete chipset for DDR4, IDT is at the forefront of that transition. This milestone underscores the confidence our customers have in this complete solution of silicon and software to help differentiate their next-generation modules and platforms.”
“DDR4 began ramping this year and is on course to supplanting DDR3 for enterprise workhorse and mission-critical server systems,” said Mike Howard, principal analyst at IHS. “Memory interface providers such as IDT have played a critical role in realizing the significant performance and power improvements of DDR4 technology to the ecosystem.”
IDT’s DDR4 chipset is fully compliant to the published JEDEC 1.0 specifications and has completed rigorous qualifications by customers and ecosystem partners. In addition to the 4RCD0124K registered clock driver, IDT’s DDR4 solution includes the 4DB0124K data buffer, and TSE2004GB2 thermal sensor with SPD. All three devices are production-released and shipping in volume today. For more information about IDT’s DDR4 solutions, visit www.idt.com/go/DDR4.
