Virtium Technology Inc., a leading designer and manufacturer of long-life memory modules for mission-critical applications, today announced its new low power DDR3 Unbuffered DIMM in the Very-Low Profile (VLP). Virtiums new DDR3 Unbuffered DIMM modules deliver on three key requirements; low power, high density and small size. At 1.35V, the new module family provides a 43% power savings in watts compared with Registered DIMM modules, and offers a 16% power saving compared with Unbuffered DIMM 1.5V modules. Supplying a low-profile design, the new modules feature a height of only 17.78mm (0.70 inches) and measures 8.15mm (0.32 inches) thick. The new low power Unbuffered DIMMs from Virtium are available in densities up to 4 Gigabytes (GB). The Virtium 1.35V DDR3 VLP Unbuffered DIMM provides an optimal memory module solution for a broad range of applications that need to comply with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agencys (EPA) ENERGY STAR initiative energy saving requirements such as data center AdvancedTCA blades, Ethernet switches and routers.
Embedded systems such as those found in data centers are under increasing pressure from government regulators and new green environmental guidelines to reduce their energy footprint. But OEMs are also challenged to increase the performance of their systems to support additional features and capabilities demanded by the market, said Phan Hoang, vice president of research and development at Virtium Technology. Virtiums new low power U-DIMM module series gives designers the power savings they need, while supplying the memory density that supports these high-performance systems. This lower power consumption allows OEMs to in-turn reduce system power to meet ENERGY STAR guidelines.
