Virtium Introduces DDR3 Very Low Profile (VLP) Unbuffered DIMM Memory Module

Ideal for Space-Constrained Applications in Embedded Computing; DDR3 0.72-Inch VLP Unbuffered Modules Available for Engineering Evaluation

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - August 19, 2008) - INTEL DEVELOPER FORUM, Booth # 633 -- Virtium Technology Inc., manufacturer of memory and storage products for specialized computers in demanding environments, today announced the addition of the DDR3 0.72-inch Very Low Profile (VLP) unbuffered DIMM module to its family of DDR3 memory products for embedded systems. The new DDR3 0.72-inch VLP unbuffered memory product is ideal for space-constrained applications for next-generation products in embedded computing, AdvancedTCA (ATCA) and MicroTCA (MTCA), as well as many other applications that require the blade server form factor. Module densities of up to 2GB are now available for engineering evaluation with full production by year end.

"Virtium's DDR3 0.72-inch VLP unbuffered DIMM was developed to meet the specific needs of our customers," said John Park, vice president, sales & marketing at Virtium. "DDR3 Fly-By architecture posed many technical challenges for small form factor memory, especially in the unbuffered mode. Virtium overcame these challenges with its expertise in layout, simulation and mechanical design. This innovative DDR3 0.72-inch VLP unbuffered solution is only available through Virtium. Customers who need to scale down the real estate of their systems will gain significant competitive advantage with Virtium's new DDR3 unbuffered solution."
