JEDEC Adopts DDR2 32b SO-DIMM Design Specification
Arlington, VA – February 20, 2007 – Recognizing the growing importance and benefits of standardization in peripheral device markets, JEDEC has approved the full specification for the EP2-2100 DDR2 32b-SO-DIMM. These memory modules provide a 32-bit interface to the system on a 144-pin small outline dual inline memory module (SO-DIMM) form factor, 30 by 67.6 mm in size. The 32b-SO-DIMM pinout is upward compatible with the DDR2 16b-SO-DIMM standard, allowing systems to design to either module type while using the same infrastructure including sockets. Target markets for the 32b-SO-DIMM include laser printers or other devices requiring fairly small density granularity ranging from 64 MB to 1 GB. Performance is not compromised as these modules use DDR2-533 SDRAMs to achieve peak throughput of 2.1 GB per second. Availability of compliant modules is immediate.
JEDEC is the leading developer of standards for the solid-state industry. Almost 2900 participants, appointed by some 280 companies work together in 50 JEDEC committees to meet the needs of every segment of the industry, manufacturers and consumers alike. The publications and standards that they generate are accepted throughout the world. All JEDEC standards are available online, at no charge. More information is available at www.jedec.org.
