SMART Modular announces DDR5 industrial grade modules
SMART Modular Technologies has introduced DDR5 modules that feature enhanced endurance and stability for industrial applications.
These DRAM modules combine the advanced technology of DDR5 with SMART Modular’s rigorous test processese in order to ensure reliable operation at industrial-grade temperatures (-40°C to +85°C).
Customised SMART test programs and test flows together with specialised burn-in equipment are used to screen out DRAM components that are likely to fail under temperature stress, resulting in modules that exhibit, according to the company, some of the lowest DPPM rates in the industry.
SMART’s industrial-grade modules are 100 percent system tested at high speeds, starting with a cold boot at -40°C and ramping to +85°C ambient operation. High-utilisation customised testing software fully stresses all cells in the DRAM through the complete temperature cycle.
“SMART applies all of its proven industrial-grade feature sets, including burn-in, conformal coating, anti-sulfur resisters and other processes to these new modules,” said Arthur Sainio, director of product marketing at SMART Modular Technologies. “These added features ensure that our DDR5 modules can operate reliably in the harshest operating environments.”
SMART also offers its SMART ARC (Anti-vibration Retention Clamp), a locking retention device. that’s been explicitly designed to secure memory modules used in operating environments that require maximum stabilisation in the field.
SMART DDR5 industrial-grade modules provide twice the performance of DDR4 while improving power efficiency. This is accomplished with an on-DIMM 12V voltage regulator (PMIC) and dual-channel DIMM topology for higher channel efficiency.
These modules are well-suited for a wide variety of applications, including single-board computers used in industrial and defence applications, base stations and telecom equipment exposed to outdoor elements, as well as densely configured computing applications with limited airflow.
SMART’s DDR5 industrial-grade modules include unbuffered and registered DIMMs in 16GB, 32GB and 64GB densities, and unbuffered and ECC SODIMMs in 8GB, 16GB, and 32GB densities.
