Memory

Advantech, a maker of server-grade memory, storage, and other components and solutions, is introducing a new lineup of 32 GB unbuffered DDR4 memory modules. Designed for high-performance computing (HPC) applications, the SQRAM-brand DIMMs use the latest DDR4 DRAM devices from Samsung, and feature additional reinforcements to make them suitable for industrial applications. Advantech’s SQRAM 32 GB DDR4 modules are based on Samsung’s 16 Gb DDR4-2666 memory chips. Given their positioning, they enable system makers to easily install 64 GB of memory into machines with two memory slots or 128 GB of memory into machines with four memory slots, twice what's possible with today's common 16 GB DIMMs. Advantech's modules come in ECC Unbuffered DIMMs, Unbuffered SO-DIMM, ECC SO-DIMM, and Rugged DIMM form-factors.
