SMART Modular Technologies Introduces 2GB DDR2 Mini-DIMMs for Next-Generation Telecom and Network Blade Applications

FREMONT, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- July 18, 2005 -- SMART Modular Technologies, a leading independent manufacturer of memory module products and services, introduces DDR2 Mini-DIMMs now available in 2GB densities to support next-generation telecom and network blade applications, many of which require high-density memory modules in small form factors.

Optimized for use in blade and single board computer (SBC) applications, the new DDR2 Mini-DIMMs are offered in registered and unbuffered versions to meet growing OEM needs for increased memory capacity and reduced board space. SMART's comprehensive, high-density DDR2 product line serves current-generation as well as cutting-edge new blade server and communications designs.

According to a forecast published in May 2005 by Semico Research Corp., communications and server applications are expected to be the leading drivers for the DRAM market over the next few years. Emerging blade applications place similar demands on DRAM -- more memory in a smaller footprint. With the addition of 2GB densities, SMART's DDR2 Mini-DIMM product offerings satisfy a wide range of these applications in terms of performance, density requirements, reliability, and price.

Specifically designed to meet the vibration specifications for telecommunications applications, SMART's Mini-DIMMs can use robust vertical, angled (22.5 degrees), and right-angle connectors. The right-angle connector option meets tight vertical clearance constraints while offering the additional advantage of board space underneath for passive devices. Each connector type is targeted to meet stringent Network Equipment Building Systems (NEBS)-type reliability test requirements. In addition, SMART Mini-DIMMs are equipped with built-in error correction code (ECC) for data-sensitive applications.

Measuring only 30 mm in height, SMART's JEDEC-derivative Mini-DIMMs support current and emerging OEM applications and have been designed to meet RoHS and Pb-free industry specifications. SMART offers Mini-DIMMs in 128MB, 256MB, 512MB, 1GB, and now 2 GB densities, as shown in the table below.
