To improve convection cooling, Virtium Technology Inc. has unveiled a thermal heat-spreader for its DDR2 SO-DIMM, SO-RDIMM and SO-CDIMM.

Virtium SO-DIMM memory modules with heat-spreader now add heat-sink capability to remove heat more effectively than conventional air-cooled SO-DIMMs. Virtium's heat-spreader for SODIMMs is available for all SO-DIMM product variants using mainstream 512Mbit and 1Gbit devices.

"With these new heat-spreaders, Virtium directly addresses an industry-wide problem to control excessive or less than optimal operating temperatures in demanding embedded environments," said Phan Hoang, director of R&D, Virtium Technology. "This approach to heat removal offers multiple benefits including better thermal performance and improved reliability in adverse thermal environments with fewer single-bit errors."

Virtium's heat-sink-equipped modules are intended for use in extended temperature ranges. They are fitting as ATCA memory, AdvancedMC memory, MicroTCA memory, PicoTCA memory and AMC memory for blade applications and PICMG SBCs.
