|Unveils DDR2-533 and DDR2-667 FB-DIMMs|
|ADATA Technology, number three third-party DRAM-module supplier in the world and number one in Asia, unveils its new DDR2-533 (PC2-4200) and DDR2-667 (PC2-5300) Fully-Buffered DIMMs (FB-DIMMs).|
ADATA FB-DIMMs, utilizing DRAM from Samsung, Elpida and Hynix, come in capacities of 512MB, 1GB and 2GB. Its suppliers of Advanced Memory Buffer (AMB) chips, the key to FB-DIMM technology, are Intel, Integrated Device Technology (IDT) and NEC.
ADATA FB-DIMMs will initially target server platforms with up to eight DIMM slots. FB-DIMMs have an AMB (Advance Memory Buffer) chip at the center of the module for protocol conversions. The automatic dynamic control of dies from the AMB can optimize the read/write status of dies to solve compatibility issues among dies as well as impedance match issues. According to Intel, FB-DIMM technology will provide systems with support of up to 192GB of memory through six channels, eight modules per channel and 4GB per module incorporating 1Gbit DRAM devices.
ADATA has offered FB-DIMMs for tests and reviews and has passed many server/workstation manufacturers’ tests in both PC2-5300F (DDR-667, 5-5-5) PC2-4300F (DDR2-533, 4-4-4) modes. The company plans to officially launch FB-DIMMs in early 2006.
ADATA Technology, established in May 2001, is a 3C applications provider with three major product lines: DRAM modules, Flash memory peripherals and multi-media products. In the spirit of constant innovation, best quality and performance, ADATA has been dedicated to delivering world-leading products. ADATA is currently the largest modules manufacturer in Asia, and is confident to become the second largest in the world in the near future. With strict quality control, ADATA became the first modules manufacturer in Taiwan to receive Intel’s Platform Memory Validation with DDR II products, and has won numerous awards, including the “G-Mark Award 2003” from JIDPO in Japan, the “Best Choice of Computex Taipei 2005 Award,” “Taiwan Symbol of Excellence 2004 Winner” awards, and many others.
