From Integrated Device Technology Inc. (IDT) come next-generation integrated register and PLL for DDR3 registered DIMMs (RDIMMs).

Designed for the next generation of power-conscious, high-performance servers and workstations, the new IDT DDR3 PLL/register device is claimed as the first to support data rates from DDR3-800 to DDR3-2133 at voltage levels including 1.5-, 1.35- and 1.25V, all with a power envelope that is unmatched in the industry.

The IDT SSTE32882K is the latest introduction in a series of memory interface devices architected with a low-power core and IO designs that have become the hallmark of IDT in the enterprise computing space. This architecture delivers active and idle power savings of 25 percent or more vs. competing devices at the same voltage node. In a data center or server cluster, that translates into simplified planning, a smaller carbon footprint and potentially thousands of dollars in OPEX savings. In addition, the device supports voltage nodes of 1.5-, 1.35- and 1.25V to further reduce the overall power consumption of the entire memory subsystem.

"The performance and economics of virtualization and client-based computing demand large memory footprints. To meet these requirements without exploding IT budgets, IDT is continually striving to minimize the power envelope that operators have to contend with in large data centers," said Mario Montana, VP and general manager for the IDT enterprise computing division. "Our new DDR3 devices with the IDT PowerSmart technology empower our customers to deliver green memory solutions that do not compromise on performance or quality."

In keeping with the IDT objective to support industry standards and interoperability, the IDT SSTE32882K is designed to be fully compatible with the most current JEDEC specification. The device sets new industry benchmarks for critical requirements, such as jitter, propagation delay (tPD) and dynamic clock offset and drift (tDYNOFF), using an architecture that delivers consistent performance across the entire range of frequency, voltage and temperature.

The IDT SSTE32882K is currently sampling to qualified customers. It is offered at $5 for 10,000 unit quantities and is available in a 176 BGA package.
