Netlist Develops 32GB RDIMM Memory Module with Planar-X Technology

Netlist keeps expanding the capacity of its HyperCloud series of RDIMM memory and recently announced that it has developed a new DDR3 module that has reached a whopping 32GB in capacity.

The memory module uses the standard 4Gb DRAM that is found in other high capacity DDR3 memory solutions, but packs no less than 72 such chips on a single PCB.

In order to achieve this feat, Netlist put to work two of its proprietary technologies, Planar-X which was used for packaging the chips on the printed circuit board and its patented rank multiplication technology.

Rank multiplication allows for the four individual physical ranks of chips to the hidden from the memory controller hub, making it believe regular 2 vRanks memory is used.

In next-gen dual-socket servers, this memory could allow OEMs and other system designers to include up to 768GB of DDR3, making such modules ideal for virtualization and other applications that require vast amounts of memory.

The Netlist 32GB RIMM memory module is JEDEC compliant, plug into standard server memory slots, and delivers 1333MT/s of performance while requiring 1.35 or 1.5 Volts to operate.

"By delivering the industry's first 32GB 2vR RDIMM, we are able to offer our customers unprecedented memory capacity with efficient economics associated with widely available DRAM components," said Steve McClure, vice president of worldwide sales and marketing, Netlist.

"The processing of large data sets at high CPU speeds requires large amounts of dynamic memory to avoid costly disk drive wait times.

“With the new 32GB HyperCloud, our OEM customers can maximize server utilization and application performance which translate into differentiated value for their products," concluded the company's rep.

Netlist is showcasing its 32GB Virtual Dual Rank HyperCloud Planar-X RDIMM memory at SC11, but the company hasn't revealed any information regarding the release date or the price of this DDR3 module.
