Virtium Introduces Industry's First Enhanced DDR2 ECC Registered SODIMM at Intel Developer Forum

Design Represents New Standard for Industrial Applications; Supports Range of Next-Generation Embedded Computing Platforms

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 23, 2005 -- INTEL DEVELOPER FORUM, Booth #1021 -- Virtium Technology Inc., a leading innovator and manufacturer of the highest density memory solutions for space-restricted applications, today introduced its family of DDR2 ECC registered SODIMMs. Virtium is the first industrial memory manufacturer to add error correction code (ECC) and registered functionality to DDR2 SODIMMs, creating a new standard memory product optimized for specific OEM applications requiring ECC capability.

Virtium's enhanced DDR2 ECC registered SODIMM product family is designed to support next-generation embedded computing platforms, such as AdvancedTCA, ATCA-AMC as well as CompactPCI and VME. Virtium's DDR2 ECC registered SODIMMs are available lead-free, including densities of 1 GB and potentially up to 2 GB, speed ranges of PC2-3200/PC2-4200/PC2-5300, and both commercial and extended temperature ranges.

"Virtium's family of DDR2 ECC registered SODIMMs was developed out of necessity to satisfy the many customers clamoring for such a solution," said Phan Hoang, business development manager and chief engineer, Virtium Technology Inc. "With the introduction of this technology, we now offer a truly unique advantage for high-performance memory applications -- enabling OEMs to differentiate themselves with space-saving designs that include extra features and performance."

Embedded systems frequently require high-density memory modules in small form factors such as SODIMM. However, industrial memory designers have historically struggled with evolving to DDR2 SODIMM, as it has thusfar excluded the ECC and registered functionality absolutely critical to industrial memory applications. Virtium's DDR2 ECC registered SODIMMs also allow simple migration and a roadmap to future standards.

Virtium's family of DDR2 ECC registered SODIMM products is available and shipping now. For specific part numbers, mechanical specifications or to request a datasheet, visit Also product demos are available by visiting Virtium's booth #1021 at this week's Intel Developer Forum (IDF).
