IWILL DK88 s IWILL DK88 Opteron Board

IWILL announce world’s first high-memory capacity
workstation and server board. IWILL DK88, based on AMD Opteron™ platform, can
support up to 64GB memory. This solution is specially designed for the
memory-intensive applications, and allows the most applications, especially in
EDA/CAD/ rendering fields, running faster and more stable. IWILL DK88 successfully broke the traditional memory capacity tolerance.
There are totally 16 DDR memory DIMMs (8 DIMMs per CPU) on board, and each DIMM
could support up to 4GB memory. It supports registered memory with ECC and
chip-kill function to fulfill the most critical task from Electronic Design
Automation market. As design sizes continue to increase, more and more designs
will exceed the current workstation’s capacity. This leaves designers struggling
to find a way around the workstation’s memory limits. IWILL DK88 is a technology
breakthrough to support EDA tools well.

IWILL Corporation, a leading manufacturer of high-end server, workstation and
appliance solutions, is proud to announce world’s first high-memory capacity
workstation and server board. IWILL DK88, based on AMD Opteron™ platform, can
support up to 64GB memory. This solution is specially designed for the
memory-intensive applications, and allows the most applications, especially in
EDA/CAD/ rendering fields, running faster and more stable.

“IWILL has been dedicated on workstation and server market for a long time,
so we know how difficult it is when an engineer ran EDA tools without sufficient
memories. IWILL DK88 is a key to facilitate development of EDA market.” said
Mason Su, General Manager of IWILL Corporation.

In order to deliver the maximal memory capacity, IWILL chose digital Voltage
Regulator Module instead of the traditional aluminum electrolytic capacitors.
Because one of the key features for digital VRM is its smaller footprint, it
leaves enough room to put more memory banks on board. It also avoids the risk of
leaking capacitors damaging systems. The electrolyte would not only cause the
damage on the board’s elements, but also destroy your expensive peripheral
accessories.
