DDR4 Mini-DIMM memory announced

The latest DDR4 memory standard has not only brought higher clock speeds, larger capacities and more bandwidth – as it turns out it has brought a new memory standard too.

The new DDR4 memory standard is called Mini-DIMM and hails from the memory maker SMART Modular Technologies. The new memory will be used in many application segments including but not limited to networking, telecom, industrial, computing and storage by OEMs who want to save board space or source as an alternative to SO-DIMMs. The new form factor offers high memory density and high speeds that start at 2133 MHz. The memory modules offer capacities of 8 GB and 16 GB in the VLP Mini-UDIMM form factor and the same 8 GB and 16 GB of capacity in standard height Mini-RDIMMs, all of which fully meet JEDEC’s standards and follow the new 288-pin form factor.

The transition to the new form factor will be eased by Molex, which happens to be a global provider of complete interconnect solutions. The company has developed a robust DDR4 Mini-DIMM vertical-mount 288-pin socket with secure latches that can be used with the new Mini-DIMM memory modules.

“We are pleased to help drive industry adoption and JEDEC standardization of the DDR4 Mini-DIMM socket,” stated WK Poon, Product Manager at Molex. “Our goal in close collaboration with SMART is to help support customers in the migration to DDR4 Mini-DIMMs.”

No word on pricing or availability as of now.
