Transcend last week introduced a family of DDR4 SO-DIMMs that can operate in extreme temperature conditions. The modules are designed for industrial computers, special-purpose PCs, POS, ATM and other systems that work in rough environments for 24/7. Subsequently, the SO-DIMMs can be used safely in SFF PCs without decent cooling for prolonged amounts of time.
Transcend’s new industrial grade memory modules use special PCBs that have industrial-grade capacitors, 30μm gold-plated contacts and are designed to withstand shock, electromagnetic disturbance and extreme temperatures from –40°C to +85°C. In theory, it means that the SO-DIMMs are rated to operate in Antarctica or in the Lut Desert in Iran. In the real world, Transcend’s new SO-DIMMs will be used inside space-constrained industrial PCs, military systems, embedded systems and...
