Smart Modular Technologies expanded its DDR2 family to include what is said to be the industry’s first 8GB PC2-5300 244-pin Mini-registered DIMM (RDIMM) designed using CoolFlex and dual die package (DDP) technologies. The new Mini-RDIMM is suited for high-density, space-constrained networking and storage applications. Configured as a 1Gx72, four-rank module using SMART-built 2Gb (512Mx4) DDPs, this device doubles memory capacity, according to the company, by allowing 36 DRAM placements on four sides. In order to reduce loading and improve signal integrity, the device has been designed with two registers and two phase locked loops (PLLs). Following the JEDEC standard pin-out, the Mini-RDIMMs incorporate the necessary error correction code functionality to satisfy many types of data-sensitive applications. They can be mounted with vertical, right-angled, or angled sockets.
