Virtium Launches DDR2 Blade Memory Modules for Embedded Computing; Includes Very Low Profile Memory Modules (VLP Memory) and Ultra Low Profile Memory Modules (ULP Memory)

Enhanced JEDEC Standard Form Factors Are Available for DDR2 VLP SODIMM, VLP SO-RDIMM, VLP SO-CDIMM; Also ULP Mini-RDIMM, ULP RDIMM and ULP UDIMM

SAN JOSE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 2, 2007 -- Embedded Systems Conference (Booth #1246) -- Virtium Technology Inc., manufacturer of memory modules for specialized computers in demanding environments, today announced its DDR2 Very Low Profile (VLP) and DDR2 Ultra Low Profile (ULP) blade memory modules for embedded computing applications. Both types of memory modules are designed with significant enhancements to the JEDEC standard, including reduced module height and densities up to 4GB.

Virtium's VLP memory modules now include DDR2 VLP SODIMM, VLP SO-RDIMM and VLP SO-CDIMM. Virtium's DDR2 ULP memory modules now include ULP Mini-RDIMM, ULP RDIMM and ULP UDIMM form factors.

Virtium has enhanced the JEDEC VLP memory module standard by offering VLP SODIMMs at densities up to 4GB. Virtium's new ULP memory module series offers DIMM heights of 0.70 inches, enhanced from the JEDEC standard of 0.72 inches. All Virtium's VLP and ULP memory modules are available in industrial temperature extended temperature range, and are ideal as AdvancedTCA memory (ATCA memory), AdvancedMC memory, MicroTCA memory, PicoTCA memory and AMC memory for blade applications and PICMG SBCs.

"Our enhanced standard VLP and ULP memory modules provide a significant edge for today's embedded system designers," said Phan Hoang, director of research and development, Virtium Technology Inc. "Lower height and higher density memory is a major advantage when designing for demanding and complex embedded applications."
