Kingston thumb Kingston Goes Green with Less PCB

Kingston today announced the launch of
the low profile modules for the commitment to the society. The new low profile modules function exactly the same way,
which is absolutely great news for the end users who can benefit from smaller
systems and lower heat diffusivity. These modules follow JEDEC standard with
less consumption of PCB board, about 40% less in height compared to the modules
we see today.

“Less is better” has become a common sense of the global citizens. Some of
them are practicing LOHAS life style and some are going green by reducing the
consumption of carbon dioxide. The green consciousness has been raised these
days, due to the changes in the environment. Kingston Technology Company, Inc.,
the independent world leader in memory products, today announced the launch of
the low profile modules for the commitment to the society.

“The new low profile modules are more efficient than their predecessors. Smaller
modules use fewer materials, which is better for the environment.” said Ann Bai,
Product Manager, DRAM Memory, APAC Region, Kingston. “The disposal of PCB can
cause environmental hazard. Kingston is proud to introduce the new modules to
the market and hopes this small step could help to make our world better,” added
Bai.

Advances in technology have resulted in smaller chips and smaller computer
systems. Kingston was motivated to stay ahead of technology by developing
smaller modules. The new low profile modules function exactly the same way,
which is absolutely great news for the end users who can benefit from smaller
systems and lower heat diffusivity. These modules follow JEDEC standard with
less consumption of PCB board, about 40% less in height compared to the modules
we see today.

Kingston Kingston Goes Green with Less PCB

Kingston begins phasing in new Very Low Profile (VLP) DIMMs for unbuffered
DDR2 Desktop memory SKUs for ValueRAM and eventually the System Specific memory.
Some of the best selling modules, such as ValueRAM DDR2-800 and DDR2-667, have
adapted to the new VLP standard. The VLP stands 0.72" (18.3mm) high compared to
the standard PCB height of 1.18" (30mm). The two designs are functionally
equivalent and have the same electrical characteristic and interface. Kingston
is committed to reducing industrial waste and providing greeners more
eco-friendly products for the environment.
