IDT Announces Volume Sample Availability of DDR4 Register and Thermal Sensor for Next-generation Server Memory Modules

Integrated Device Technology, Inc. (IDT®) (NASDAQ: IDTI), the Analog and Digital Company™ delivering essential mixed-signal semiconductor solutions, today announced a DDR4 register and temperature sensor that meet the industry’s stringent performance requirements. The new products are designed to facilitate the next generation of DRAM modules, including both registered dual inline memory modules (RDIMMs) and load-reduced DIMMs (LRDIMMs), to enable advancements in server and storage sub-system performance, scalability and power efficiency.

The IDT 4RCD0124 DDR4 register supports faster data rates and lower operating voltages, and it incorporates the major features required by DDR4 server-class memory modules. These key features include advanced reliability, availability and serviceability (RAS) capabilities and support for high-density DRAM technologies, including three-dimensional DRAM stacking (3DS). It also supports sideband control of additional data buffers which, together with the register, form the basis for DDR4 LRDIMMs that enable a new level of speed-scalable memory density for virtualized computing and storage systems. DDR4 server memory modules will double the performance of the current generation of DDR3 memory modules with performance of up to 3200 MT/s while simultaneously reducing power by 35 percent or more.

The IDT TSE2004GB2 thermal sensor with integrated serial presence detect (SPD) leverages the low-power, high-precision thermal sensing technology developed by IDT and upgrades it with faster SM-Bus access up to 1 MHz and double the EEPROM memory density at 512 bytes. The device is fully backward-compatible with DDR3 systems and supports the current feature enhancements set forth by the Joint Electronic Device Engineering Council (JEDEC) for DDR4 systems.

According to Mike Howard, senior principal analyst, DRAM and memory, at IHS, the transition to DDR4 memory is expected to begin in earnest in 2014 and grow to nearly half of the overall market in 2015. The value of transitioning to DDR4 memory is particularly compelling in enterprise server and storage equipment, where memory footprints have grown significantly to keep pace with ever more powerful and integrated microprocessors.

“As the industry’s premier memory interface products supplier, our customers and ecosystem partners look to IDT to lead in all phases of the development of new technologies, from early standards development to product delivery,” said Mario Montana, vice president and general manager of the Enterprise Computing Division at IDT. “DDR4 memory modules utilizing IDT products deliver the scalability, performance, and power efficiency crucial for applications such as in-memory databases, virtualization, and cloud computing.”

Banner Engineering DF-G3 Discrete Fiber Amplifier Features World-Class Long Range Sensing Capability

Banner Engineering introduces its DF-G3 discrete long-range fiber amplifier with dual digital displays for use with plastic and glass fiber optic assemblies. Featuring increased sensing power, the DF-G3 can sense more than 3 meters (10 ft.) with opposed mode fibers or more than 1 meter (3 ft.) with diffuse mode fibers. The extra power provides increased detection reliability for dark targets at long range and enhanced detection sensitivity when using specialty fiber assemblies for large area and small part detection applications.

The DF-G3 is available with a single discrete output or two dual discrete outputs. The dual discrete outputs can be independently taught to trigger at different intensity values, which is ideal for correct part-in-place or error-proofing, bottle down, and edge guiding applications.

“We developed the DF-G3 fiber amplifier to meet our customers’ need to precisely detect smaller targets at longer ranges” said Dennis Smith, Senior Marketing Manager, Banner Engin…


TURCK is now offering the option to completely shield M8 picofast ® cordsets by connecting a braided shield directly to the coupling nut. This provides a cost-effective and reliable connection with 100 percent cable and connector shielding, which protects against electromagnetic and radio frequency interference.

The 3 and 4-pin cordsets are available with flexlife ® PVC or PUR jacketed cable. All connectors deliver IEC IP 67 protection.

The M8 picofast line, like most TURCK cordsets, provides male or female, straight and right angle connectors, standard and custom lengths, and pigtails or extensions. Fully encapsulated mating receptacles are also offered, completing the system.

IDEC Releases New Line of High Efficiency Power Supplies

IDEC Corporation announces the PS5R-V line of DIN-rail power supplies, offering their customers high-efficiency in a compact form factor at competitive prices. These power supplies suit a wide range of needs in the industrial marketplace, and carry all of the required certifications necessary for use in these demanding applications. This next generation of the industry standard PS5R power supply family has updated features and specifications to meet current and future needs.

The PS5R-V line of power supplies includes 10W, 15W, 30W, 60W and 120W versions, with additional versions coming soon. These power supplies have a very compact form factor with overall dimensions reduced by up to 25% from previous generations. The reduced form factors combine with DIN-rail mounting to free up valuable control panel space and reduce installation costs.

Operating temperature ranges up to -25 to +75 degrees C offer more versatility. These extended operating temperature ranges often allow these power…
