Kingston Launches Fully Buffered DIMM Memory Modules

Kingston Technology Company, the independent worldwide leader in memory products,
today announced the release of its new line of Fully Buffered DIMM memory modules
(FB-DIMM). As the leading independent manufacturer of memory modules, Kingston
made an early and strategic decision to commit major resources to support next
generation memory technology like FB-DIMM thus becoming a leading manufacturer
and supplier of FB-DIMM memory to Intel and the industry. Kingston’s FB-DIMM
modules are a high-speed, high-density memory solution for related technology
workstation and server platforms. Kingston’s FB-DIMMs will offer memory flexibility
and more expansion options, opening new horizons in memory technology. Kingston’s
FB-DIMMs resolve the DDR2 memory speed vs. capacity bottleneck and comply with
JEDEC standards. FB-DIMM memory architecture allows up to six memory channels
with each channel supporting up to eight dual-rank memory modules and allows
for two channels to simultaneously read and write in con current transactions.

Kingston FB-DIMM Features and Specifications:

– Tested at 533 MHz for
optimal performance
– 1.8 Volts
operation
– Operational enhancements to increase memory performance, efficiency and timing
margins
– Latency
timings: 4-4-4

Already a strategic FB-DIMM supplier to major OEMs, Kingston’s FB-DIMMs provide a solution to many signal integrity and quality concerns. “FB-DIMM architecture increases server memory capacity from 8 GB to 192 GB at a high speed based on a 4GB-module configuration, a twenty-four-fold increase.” said Scott Chen, Vice President, APAC Business Development, Kingston. “In addition to higher capacity, FB-DIMMs will have a peak bandwidth four times greater than standard DDR2 server modules,” continued Scott.
Benefits of using Kingston’s FB-DIMM technology on high-end servers include scalability, flexibility, and higher capacity while the same new technology will increase speed and performance.

Kingston engineers have developed special boards and test-programs
that are used to conduct “parametric” and characterization testing on high-end
Agilent testers to ensure that FB-DIMMs are functional and comply with specifications.
Kingston’s FB-DIMMs come with a lifetime warranty and free technical support
plus the legendary reliability that makes Kingston the leader in memory.
