Pioneering New DDR4 Industrial-grade Wide-temperature Server Memory, To Enhance Survivability for Both Indoor and Outdoor Servers

Jun 17, 2020

Following the release of its patented DDR4 anti-sulfuration server memory, Apacer continues to enhance the survivability of server memory with a DDR4 industrial-grade wide-temperature server memory module. This product can help improve the availability of server equipment and is ideal for emerging server markets that must contend with severe temperature swings, such as rugged outdoor servers and edge systems, mobile edge computing, and outdoor telecommunications equipment including 5G RAN applications and pole-mounted server platforms. 

According to DIGITIMES Research, the COVID-19 pandemic is expected to drive the demand for online services even higher. In the second quarter of 2020, global server shipments will likely increase by 15.8%. The rise of AIoT in recent years has brought outdoor servers and edge systems closer to their data sources to improve transmission and computing efficiency or to save bandwidth. Outdoor server applications are becoming more diverse, and server applications are no longer limited to running in environmentally controlled, fully equipped indoor computer rooms. Server equipment, which typically operates non-stop, generates a large amount of waste heat and creates a lasting high-temperature environment within the server as a result. Long-term exposure or extreme temperature changes outdoors threatens server memory data transmission performance and may impact stability. Key data may be lost, and in severe cases, systems may crash and sustain damage.

Apacer’s DDR4 industrial-grade wide-temperature server memory module is made from carefully selected industrial-grade materials, including industrial-grade wide temperature ICs from original manufacturers. This is a significant distinction from other products on the market that are made from commercial-grade ICs using the sorting method. Apacer’s module is also equipped with a gold finger design with high resistance to plugging, environmental corrosion resistance, and a gold plating thickness of 30u. It also employs high-temperature-resistant registers and passive components, which greatly improves stability and reliability in extreme temperature environments. A built-in thermal sensor for monitoring temperature in real time effectively prevents the risk of overheating. This memory module passed strict high temperature and long-term dynamic burn-in tests with flying colors before leaving the factory. Potential early failure problems were eliminated so as to maintain the highest standards of quality.

Apacer has extensive experience in R&D, manufacturing, and testing and works with many vertical market customers to develop wide-temperature memory modules. The DDR4 industrial-grade wide-temperature server memory module fulfills the demand for survivability and already serves in both indoor and outdoor applications ranging from data centers to defense and healthcare applications. The first wave of server modules will include capacities from 4 to 16GB, a maximum speed of DDR4 2666 MT/s, support for VLP board size, and anti-sulfuration technology.
