IDT Announces Industry’s First Complete DDR4 LRDIMM Chipset

Integrated Device Technology, Inc. (IDT®) (NASDAQ: IDTI), the Analog and Digital Company™ delivering essential mixed-signal semiconductor solutions, today announced the availability of the industry’s first complete chipset for DDR4 load reduced dual inline memory modules (LRDIMMs), including both a registered clock driver and data buffer devices. With DDR4 data rates climbing to 3.2 Gb/s and higher, the clear advantages afforded by LRDIMM as a speed-scalable memory technology are expected to drive adoption across a broad array of memory-intensive computing and storage applications.

The new IDT 4DB0124 DDR4 data buffer completes a chipset with the already available 4RCD0124 registered clock driver (RCD) to provide complete buffering of command, address, clock and data signals across an LRDIMM. By instantiating nine data buffers across the bottom of an LRDIMM with a single RCD in the center, up to 16 ranks of DRAM can be reduced to a single load (as presented to the host controller channel). This distributed approach minimizes stub lengths and physical skew between data bits and drastically improves the speed and bandwidth performance of LRDIMMs in multi-slot systems. DDR4 LRDIMM also reduces termination power consumption and cuts latency in half versus DDR3 LRDIMM.

“Intel has been working with ecosystem partners to realize DDR4 memory modules, including LRDIMM,” said Geof Findley, Director of Memory Ecosystem Enabling at Intel (NASDAQ: INTC). “Memory interface devices are a key component of these modules and we are pleased to see IDT’s continued leadership in this area.”

“DDR4 represents the next major transition in memory interfaces. With the data rates and memory footprints necessitated by cloud, business critical, and high performance computing applications, LRDIMM is an increasingly critical technology for our customers,” said Mario Montana, vice president and general manager of the Enterprise Computing Division at IDT. “Enabling our ecosystem partners to succeed at all phases of product development has been instrumental in our long-standing market leadership. IDT’s early introduction of DDR4 registers, data buffers and temperature sensors as first-to-market solutions for DDR4 ECC-UDIMM, RDIMM, and now LRDIMM, ensures that IDT will remain at the forefront of customer qualifications.”

The 4DB0124 supports power savings modes that enable advanced configuration and power interface (ACPI) states to reduce overall system power consumption. The innovative device also supports a range of test and debug features, including buffer transparent mode, to facilitate LRDIMM manufacturing, test, and system-level validation. The 4DB0124 and 4RCD0124 are currently under evaluation with ecosystem partners.

Pricing and Availability

The IDT 4DB0124 is currently sampling to qualified customers and is available in a 53-ball FPBGA package. For more information about the IDT 4DB0124, please contact IDT sales. For more information about IDT’s extensive portfolio of memory interface products, visit

Electric power utilities face relentless pressure on their financial performance, and reducing distribution grid losses is one of the last untapped opportunities to meet their business goals. Combining IoT-enabled sensors and cloud-based data analytics, utilities now are able to find, quantify and reduce losses faster – and with a smaller IT footprint. Solutions exist using Internet-enabled sensors deployed temporarily at strategic locations within the distribution grid to measure actual line loads.
The Internet of Everything is re-shaping technology trends–moving away from “request/response” architecture to an “always-on” Streaming Web where data is in constant motion and secure, reliable communication is an absolute necessity. As more and more THINGS go online, the challenges that developers will need to address will only increase exponentially. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Todd Greene, Founder & CEO of PubNub, will explore the current state of IoT connectivity and review key trends and technology requirements that will drive the Internet of Things from hype to reality.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is growing rapidly by extending current technologies, products and networks. By 2020, Cisco estimates there will be 50 billion connected devices. Gartner has forecast revenues of over $300 billion, just to IoT suppliers. Now is the time to figure out how you’ll make money – not just create innovative products. With hundreds of new products and companies jumping into the IoT fray every month, there’s no shortage of innovation. Despite this, McKinsey/VisionMobile data shows "less than 10 percent of IoT developers are making enough to support a reasonably sized team....
There will be 20 billion IoT devices connected to the Internet soon. What if we could control these devices with our voice, mind, or gestures? What if we could teach these devices how to talk to each other? What if these devices could learn how to interact with us (and each other) to make our lives better? What if Jarvis was real? How can I gain these super powers? In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, will show you!
Developing software for the Internet of Things (IoT) comes with its own set of challenges. Security, privacy, and unified standards are a few key issues. In addition, each IoT product is comprised of at least three separate application components: the software embedded in the device, the backend big-data service, and the mobile application for the end user's controls. Each component is developed by a different team, using different technologies and practices, and deployed to a different stack/target - this makes the integration of these separate pipelines and the coordination of software upd...

In his session at DevOps Summit, Mark Hydar, Head of DevOps, Ericsson TV Platforms, will share best practices and provide helpful tips for Ops teams to adopt an open line of communication with the development side of the house to ensure success between the two sides.
Mobile messaging has been a popular communication channel for more than 20 years. Finnish engineer Matti Makkonen invented the idea for SMS (Short Message Service) in 1984, making his vision a reality on December 3, 1992 by sending the first message ("Happy Christmas") from a PC to a cell phone. Since then, the technology has evolved immensely, from both a technology standpoint, and in our everyday uses for it. Originally used for person-to-person (P2P) communication, i.e., Sally sends a text message to Betty – mobile messaging now offers tremendous value to businesses for customer and empl...
The IoT market is on track to hit $7.1 trillion in 2020. The reality is that only a handful of companies are ready for this massive demand. There are a lot of barriers, paint points, traps, and hidden roadblocks. How can we deal with these issues and challenges? The paradigm has changed. Old-style ad-hoc trial-and-error ways will certainly lead you to the dead end. What is mandatory is an overarching and adaptive approach to effectively handle the rapid changes and exponential growth.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
Nowadays, a large number of sensors and devices are connected to the network. Leading-edge IoT technologies integrate various types of sensor data to create a new value for several business decision scenarios. The transparent cloud is a model of a new IoT emergence service platform. Many service providers store and access various types of sensor data in order to create and find out new business values by integrating such data.
The broad selection of hardware, the rapid evolution of operating systems and the time-to-market for mobile apps has been so rapid that new challenges for developers and engineers arise every day.
