IDT Announces Industry’s First Complete DDR4 LRDIMM Chipset

  IDT Announces Industry’s First Complete DDR4 LRDIMM Chipset

          IDT Reinforces Leadership in DDR4 Memory Interface Devices

Business Wire

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- January 28, 2013

Integrated Device Technology, Inc. (IDT^®) (NASDAQ: IDTI), the Analog and
Digital Company™ delivering essential mixed-signal semiconductor solutions,
today announced the availability of the industry’s first complete chipset for
DDR4 load reduced dual inline memory modules (LRDIMMs), including both a
registered clock driver and data buffer devices. With DDR4 data rates climbing
to 3.2 Gb/s and higher, the clear advantages afforded by LRDIMM as a
speed-scalable memory technology are expected to drive adoption across a broad
array of memory-intensive computing and storage applications.

The new IDT 4DB0124 DDR4 data buffer completes a chipset with the already
available 4RCD0124 registered clock driver (RCD) to provide complete buffering
of command, address, clock and data signals across an LRDIMM. By instantiating
nine data buffers across the bottom of an LRDIMM with a single RCD in the
center, up to 16 ranks of DRAM can be reduced to a single load (as presented
to the host controller channel). This distributed approach minimizes stub
lengths and physical skew between data bits and drastically improves the speed
and bandwidth performance of LRDIMMs in multi-slot systems. DDR4 LRDIMM also
reduces termination power consumption and cuts latency in half versus DDR3
LRDIMM.

“Intel has been working with ecosystem partners to realize DDR4 memory
modules, including LRDIMM,” said Geof Findley, Director of Memory Ecosystem
Enabling at Intel (NASDAQ: INTC). “Memory interface devices are a key
component of these modules and we are pleased to see IDT’s continued
leadership in this area.”

“DDR4 represents the next major transition in memory interfaces. With the data
rates and memory footprints necessitated by cloud, business critical, and high
performance computing applications, LRDIMM is an increasingly critical
technology for our customers,” said Mario Montana, vice president and general
manager of the Enterprise Computing Division at IDT. “Enabling our ecosystem
partners to succeed at all phases of product development has been instrumental
in our long-standing market leadership. IDT’s early introduction of DDR4
registers, data buffers and temperature sensors as first-to-market solutions
for DDR4 ECC-UDIMM, RDIMM, and now LRDIMM, ensures that IDT will remain at the
forefront of customer qualifications.”

The 4DB0124 supports power savings modes that enable advanced configuration
and power interface (ACPI) states to reduce overall system power consumption.
The innovative device also supports a range of test and debug features,
including buffer transparent mode, to facilitate LRDIMM manufacturing, test,
and system-level validation. The 4DB0124 and 4RCD0124 are currently under
evaluation with ecosystem partners.
