Apacer's Industrial DDR5 SODIMM Ushers In the Next Generation of High-Performance Computing

Power saving and heat reduction benefits make DDR5 SODIMM suitable for manufacturers of high-performance embedded systems and industrial computers and accelerate the development and commercialization of next-generation computing. It supports Intel's 12th-generation Alder Lake mobile processors and is expected to enter mass production in 2022.

5G's market penetration is growing rapidly and requires processing speed upgrades that technologies such as DDR5 can offer. DDR5 is truly a step forward for industrial memory and can meet the needs of high-bandwidth industrial applications such as data centers, AIoT, and machine learning.

Apacer announced that industrial DDR5 SODIMM samples have already been sent to Intel for testing and verification, and worldwide compatibility testing will begin in September 2021. The industrial DDR5 SODIMM will be available in capacities of 16 and 32GB.

Apacer's industrial DDR5 SODIMM employ Micron's latest 1znm 16GB DDR5 IC and feature memory transfer rates of up to 4800MHz. They incorporate an on-die ECC mechanism that strengthens the reliability, availability, and serviceability of the DRAM IC. These modules are also protected by Apacer's highest-level anti-sulfuration technology.

DDR5 modules incorporate a power management IC (PMIC) on the module itself to control the system's load while also improving signal integrity and compatibility. DDR5 modules require 1.1V, which will translate into power savings and reduced heat generation.
