As applications of memory in high vibration and shock environments are becoming more diverse, Apacer, has launched the latest rugged memory module XR-DIMM, showcasing reliability and flexibility space usage in memory industry. 

Apacer is expanding into high end niche market of industrial applications, such as transportation, defence and aerospace, and intelligent logistics, where superior anti-shock and anti-vibration abilities are required.

Innovative Rugged Memory Design

Apacer’s rugged memory XR-DIMM uses the board-to-board connector design to fit tightly and securely onto the motherboard. In addition, it adopts the durable 300-pin connector and mounting holes to prevent memory modules from dislocating or coming away due to vibration or strong impact. This greatly improves the reliability of memory signal transmissions, serving as the strongest support for applications working under severe environments. 

Cindy Huang, Director of the Vertical Market Application Business Division, pointed out that the market demands for rugged memory are on the rise; its applications in unmanned vehicles range from self-driving cars and smart IoV to defence and aerospace and intelligent logistics. 

Apacer XR-DIMM’s connection design successfully solves the long standing problems faced by traditional memory modules operating under special application environments. This also creates a new direction for the design of industrial computers’ motherboard. 

Multiple Protection Technologies and Value-Added Applications

The XR-DIMM’s sealed board-to-board connector is designed to cope with the severe environments of automotive electronics and defence and aerospace fields, avoiding the traditional memory’s gold finger’s problem of possible oxidation when exposed to outdoor contaminating environments. Also, the XR-DIMM’s Undefill technology further strengthens its anti-vibration ability and thermal shock resistance. 

Meanwhile, the Apacer XR-DIMM also supports the industrial grade Wide-Temp chips and has a built-in thermal sensor to monitor the memory’s temperature, preventing the memory module from overheating. Additionally, the Conformal Coating and Anti-Sulphuration technology aims to ensure that the products can operate stably not only under humid and dusty environments but also environments where sulphur-containing gases pervade, providing a whole new option in industrial-grade memory.

Apacer XR-DIMM’s connector design meets the anti-vibration and anti-shock standards of MIL-STD-810 and ANSI/VITA 47-2005. XR-DIMM is compatible with DDR4 2133/2400 specification, supports ECC function and comes in two capacity choices of 8 GB and 16 GB. Having innovative anti-vibration design and multiple protection technologies, Apacer’s XR-DIMM is not only anti-vibration, high and low temperature resistant, but also anti-humidity, anti-dust and anti-sulphuration.
