DDR3 AGIGARAM Non-Volatile DIMM Solutions from AgigA Tech
News Release from:
03 September 2012
AgigA Tech, a subsidiary of Cypress, has today unveiled its third-generation DDR3 AGIGARAM Non-Volatile DIMM solution supporting up to 1600 MT/s (megatransfers per second) performance. In addition, AgigA Tech announced that the United States Patent and Trademark Office has recently issued U.S. Patent Nos. 8,200,885 and 8,200,929 pertaining to Hybrid Non-Volatile RAM technology, adding to the company's rapidly growing patent portfolio.
Performance and Persistence
AgigA Tech’s third-generation DDR3 NVDIMM products have been designed to integrate easily into the DIMM slots of industry-standard server and storage platforms. During normal operation, the NVDIMM appears as a standard registered DDR3 DIMM to the host system, providing all of the benefits and speed of high-speed, high-density DRAM. In the event of an unexpected power loss, critical data in DRAM moves to onboard flash memory using a battery-free power source based on ultracapacitors. The transfer preserves the data, which can be safely restored when power is returned.
Supporting up to DDR3-1600 speeds, the NVDIMM allows for fast, persistent memory on the main memory bus that can be used as a non-volatile write cache or metadata storage, among many applications. Offered in a JEDEC-standard 240-pin DIMM form factor, just 22 mm high, the low profile NVDIMMs can target a wide range of platforms.
“Our innovative NVDIMM solutions are a superior alternative to existing implementations that use batteries or flash for memory persistence of critical data,” said Ron Sartore, CEO of AgigA Tech. “Our patented technology provides system designers more freedom and flexibility in creating a memory architecture for optimal system performance.”
2012 Flash Memory Summit
AgigA Tech will be showcasing their latest product offering at the Flash Memory Summit at the Santa Clara Convention Center from August 21 to 23 in booth #602.
The AGIGA8601 family of products are offered in 1GB, 2GB and 4GB densities, and are currently available for customer evaluation. AgigA Tech also offers several standard and custom form factors for the companion PowerGEM ultracapacitor module.
