OCZ in a collaborative effort with Inphi announced the release of Zero-Buffer DDR (ZB-DDR) technology (patent pending) for unbuffered memory modules. Using discreet zero-delay clock buffers, ZB-DDR technology combines the robustness of server class memory with the low latency of unbuffered modules, resulting in better data integrity, lower noise, and lower susceptibility to interference over a wider frequency spectrum while still remaining fully compatible with all current motherboards. ZB-DDR technology uses the state of the art Inphi INCU 877 clock buffers with a custom-developed PCB matched to the impedance of the clock buffer.

OCZ Technology Group, a world leader in innovative, ultra-high performance
and high-reliability memory, in a collaborative effort with Inphi Corporation (www.inphi-corp.com),
a leader in precision timing and high-speed electronic components, announced the
release of Zero-Buffer DDR (ZB-DDR) technology (patent pending) for unbuffered
memory modules.

Using discreet zero-delay clock buffers, ZB-DDR technology combines the
robustness of server class memory with the low latency of unbuffered modules,
resulting in better data integrity, lower noise, and lower susceptibility to
interference over a wider frequency spectrum while still remaining fully
compatible with all current motherboards.

“At the module level, only with a clock buffer delay at 50 picoseconds or less,
is it possible to generate loss-less memory clock signals that are not subjected
to the impact of noise found in a distributed clock tree,” said Dr. Michael
Schuette, Director of Technology Development at OCZ Technology.

ZB-DDR technology uses the state of the art Inphi INCU 877 clock buffers with a
custom-developed PCB matched to the impedance of the clock buffer. “We are very
pleased to have OCZ as a partner in this pioneering hi-tech endeavor,” commented
Desi Rhoden, Executive Vice President of Inphi Corporation. “Precision clock
signals provided by our clock buffers are the key to signal integrity and
minimized error rates.”
