IDT announced that its 4RCD0124K register, 4DB0226KA3 data buffer and TSE2004 temperature sensor components are fully qualified by memory eco-system leaders,  including Intel, Dell and Micron, for DIMM applications on Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 v4 product family-based server and storage systems.

“Mission 1 for IDT is to push the memory performance and capacity envelope by addressing profound challenges in signal integrity, capacity scaling and fault isolation and correction,” said Rami Sethi, Vice President and General Manager, IDT’s memory interface products. “We have worked closely with industry leaders such as Dell, Intel and Micron to validate and qualify our components for DIMM applications on Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 v4 product family-based OEM systems. The result is huge performance gains that benefit a wide range of end user applications such as real-time data analytics, online transaction processing and workload virtualisation.”

“Intel and IDT have a wide-ranging engagement on strategic and near-term activities including JEDEC specifications and product qualification,” said Jennifer Huffstetler, Director of product marketing, Intel’s Data Center Group. “Intel has worked closely with IDT to validate and qualify their register, data buffer and temperature sensor components with the Intel Xeon processor E5 v4 product family to deliver excellent memory performance to our OEM customers.”

IDT's register component enables registered DIMM (RDIMM)-based systems to deliver industry-leading performance per watt.  In conjunction with the register, IDT’s data buffers allow up to 3TB of memory capacity when fully populated with 128GB/64GB/32GB LRDIMMs. Further, IDT's data buffer powers load-reduced DIMM (LRDIMM) applications to achieve top memory bandwidth (GB/s) on fully populated systems. The IDT chipset employs innovative features for best-in-class signal integrity that allow operation at highest possible speeds, even with heavy signal loads on high-density LRDIMMs.

“IDT provides an important part of Dell’s memory eco-system,” said Chad Fenner, Director, Dell PowerEdge Server Solutions. “Dell has qualified 4RCD0224K register and 4DB0226K data buffer based RDIMM and LRDIMMs for our updated PowerEdge 13th generation servers based on Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 v4 product family. IDT has provided meaningful bandwidth improvements and solid support in optimising LRDIMM applications for systems populated with capacities 768GB and higher.”

“Micron has adopted IDT’s 4RCD0224K register and 4DB0226K data buffer for DDR4 LRDIMMs up to 128GB and RDIMMs up to 32GB for Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 v4 product family-based server systems,” said Matthias Buchner, Micron Senior Director of marketing, Compute & Networking Business Unit. “IDT has consistently provided competitive chipsets that enable Micron to deliver best in class products that meet the performance, power and capacity requirements of our Enterprise and Cloud customers.”
