SMART Modular Technologies, Inc., a division of SGH and a global leader in memory solutions, solid-state drives, and hybrid storage products announces its new DDR5 32 GB Very Low Profile Registered Dual In-Line Memory Module (VLP RDIMM). SMART's new DuraMemory DDR5 32 GB VLP RDIMM is the industry's first DDR5 VLP RDIMM form factor.

The 32 GB VLP RDIMM addresses applications with space constraints, such as embedded 1U blade compute and storage, enterprise networking, telecom, and industrial single-board computers (SBCs). The space savings also equates to improved heat dissipation and energy savings, reducing business costs. The DDR5 32 GB VLP RDIMM is the newest addition to SMART's broad portfolio of VLP and ULP (Ultra Low Profile) modules that are suitable for all types of dense computing, storage, networking and telecom applications. For ruggedized and harsh operating conditions, SMART also offers retention clips to secure the socket latches in place, and industrial grade temperature operation of -40°C to +85°C.

Arthur Sainio, director of product marketing for DRAM at SMART Modular, explains, "SMART has a long history of providing VLP and ULP modules for a wide variety of blade applications. Currently we're seeing growing industry interest and demand for VLP modules for the new DDR5 1U blade in computing and storage applications."

Features of the DDR5 VLP RDIMM:

DDR5 technology provides improved channel architecture, uses lower IO voltage and power, and offers other advantages over DDR4

VLP RDIMM height (18.75 mm) allows for vertical DIMM placement in 1U blades and saves board space

High density achieves up to 384 GB in 1U compute and storage-blade systems with 12 DIMM sockets

High performance DDR5-4800 enables 4800 MT/s

SMART plans to begin sampling of the DDR5 32 GB VLP RDIMM in Q1 2022.
