Kingston Technology Company, the independent worldwide leader in memory products,
today announced the release of its new line of Fully Buffered DIMM memory modules
(FB-DIMM). As the leading independent manufacturer of memory modules, Kingston
made an early and strategic decision to commit major resources to support next
generation memory technology like FB-DIMM thus becoming a leading manufacturer
and supplier of FB-DIMM memory to Intel and the industry. Kingston’s FB-DIMM
modules are a high-speed, high-density memory solution for related technology
workstation and server platforms. Kingston’s FB-DIMMs will offer memory flexibility
and more expansion options, opening new horizons in memory technology. Kingston’s
FB-DIMMs resolve the DDR2 memory speed vs. capacity bottleneck and comply with
JEDEC standards. FB-DIMM memory architecture allows up to six memory channels
with each channel supporting up to eight dual-rank memory modules and allows
for two channels to simultaneously read and write in con current transactions.

Kingston FB-DIMM Features and Specifications:

- Tested at 533 MHz for
optimal performance
- 1.8 Volts
operation
- Operational enhancements to increase memory performance, efficiency and timing
margins
- Latency
timings: 4-4-4

Already a strategic FB-DIMM supplier to major OEMs, Kingston’s FB-DIMMs provide a solution to many signal integrity and quality concerns. “FB-DIMM architecture increases server memory capacity from 8 GB to 192 GB at a high speed based on a 4GB-module configuration, a twenty-four-fold increase.” said Scott Chen, Vice President, APAC Business Development, Kingston. “In addition to higher capacity, FB-DIMMs will have a peak bandwidth four times greater than standard DDR2 server modules,” continued Scott.
Benefits of using Kingston’s FB-DIMM technology on high-end servers include scalability, flexibility, and higher capacity while the same new technology will increase speed and performance.

Kingston engineers have developed special boards and test-programs
that are used to conduct “parametric” and characterization testing on high-end
Agilent testers to ensure that FB-DIMMs are functional and comply with specifications.
Kingston’s FB-DIMMs come with a lifetime warranty and free technical support
plus the legendary reliability that makes Kingston the leader in memory.
