NEWARK, CA, October 19, 2015 — SMART Modular Technologies, Inc., a leading designer, manufacturer and supplier of specialty memory and storage solutions, including memory modules, flash memory cards and other memory and solid state storage products, announces that it has ramped production of its DDR4 Mini-DIMMs making volume quantities available to OEM customers.

SMART's DDR4 Mini-DIMMs are offered in an 8GB and 16GB VLP Mini-UDIMM form factor and an 8GB and 16GB standard height Mini-RDIMM form factor, all of which fully meet JEDEC's 288-pin form factor and pinout standards.

Mini-DIMMs are one of the most versatile module form factors available and are quickly becoming a preferred option as an alternative to SO-DIMMs by OEMs who are looking to save board space. Taking up one-third less space than standard SO-DIMMs, supporting up to 16GB densities and providing high data rates up to 2.4GB/s, the Mini-DIMM is ideal for dense networking and telecom system boards. Mini-DIMMs, by design, provide extra power and ground pins which improve signal integrity and reliability further cementing them as a useful alternative to SO-DIMMs.

OEMs using DDR3 Mini-DIMMs today for networking, telecom, industrial, and storage applications now have a migration path to DDR4. For customers still in the design process, SMART offers a DDR4 Mini-DIMM-to-DIMM test adaptor which allows for Mini-DIMM system testing on standard DDR4 systems that use DIMMs.
