The Latest Chipset from Integrated Device Endorsed by Leaders for DDR4 Performance

By CIOReview | Thursday, April 7, 2016

FREMONT, CA: Integrated Device Technology Inc. (IDT) recently announced that its 4RCD0124K register, 4DB0226KA3 data buffer and TSE2004 temperature sensor components are now wholly endorsed by market leaders like Intel, Dell and Micron. They are fully functional with DIMM applications on Intel’s Xeon processors E5-2600 v4 product and its family-based storage and server systems.

"The mission for IDT is to push the memory performance and capacity envelope by addressing profound challenges in signal integrity, capacity scaling and fault isolation and correction," said Rami Sethi, VP and GM, IDT's memory interface products. They have worked closely with industry players such as Dell, Intel and Micron to validate and measure up the components for DIMM applications on Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 v4 product family-based OEM systems. This resulted in huge performance gains benefitting a wide range of end user applications viz. real-time data analytics, online transaction processing and workload virtualization.

“Intel and IDT have a wide-ranging engagement on strategic and near-term activities including JEDEC specifications and product qualification," said Jennifer Huffstetler, Director of Product Marketing in Intel's Data Center Group. Intel has worked hand-in-hand with IDT to validate and qualify their register, data buffer and temperature sensor components with the Intel Xeon processor E5 v4 product family to render excellent memory performance to our OEM customers.

IDT renders the best in industry performance per watt for registered DIMM (RDIMM)-based systems through IDT's register component. When wholly integrated with 128GB/64GB/32GB LRDIMMs, IDT's data buffers permit up to 3 TB of memory capacity. Moreover, on wholly populated systems IDT's data buffer allows load-reduced DIMM (LRDIMM) applications to attain peak memory bandwidth. The IDT chipset allows operation at heightened speeds, even whilst there is a heavy signal load on high-density LRDIMMs via its best-in-industry signal reliability.

"IDT delivers a critical part of Dell's memory eco-system," said Chad Fenner, director of Dell PowerEdge Server Solutions. "Dell has passed 4RCD0224K register and 4DB0226K data buffer based RDIMM and LRDIMMs for our updated PowerEdge 13th generation servers based on Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 v4 product family.” IDT has yielded meaningful bandwidth meliorations and strong support in optimizing LRDIMM applications to aid systems populated with capacities 768GB, and higher.
