Montage Rolls Out the World’s First Gen2 Plus DDR4 RCD Capable of DDR4-3200

SHANGHAI, China, July 25, 2016 -- Montage Technology Group Limited ("Montage"), a global fabless provider of analog and mixed-signal semiconductor solutions for the cloud computing, Internet of Things (IoT) and home entertainment markets, today announced its roll-out of the world's first Gen2 Plus DDR4 Registering Clock Driver (DDR4RCD02P) capable of DDR4-3200, and the successful validation of its Gen2 DDR4 Registering Clock Driver (DDR4RCD02) and Data Buffer (DDR4DB02) products for DDR4 server platforms.

Montage rolled out the DDR4RCD02P product in June 2016. Fully compliant with the latest JEDEC DDR4 RCD specification, the DDR4RCD02P inherits from its predecessor DDR4RCD02 all outstanding features like ultra-low power consumption, strong stability, etc, but supports higher data rates of up to 3200 Mbps than that of DDR4RCD02 at 2666 Mbps. More importantly, the DDR4RCD02P has an optional NVDIMM (Non-Volatile Dual In-line Memory Module) support feature. NVDIMM is a hybrid memory module that appears like a DDR4 SDRAM to the system controller, yet contains non-volatile memories such as NAND Flash on the module. With this added feature, the DDR4RCD02P can provide a new level of functionality to the computer memory hierarchy and enable the next-generation data center servers to take full advantage of persistent memory at DRAM speeds.

In May 2016, Montage also received chipset vendor’s validation for its Gen2 DDR4RCD02/DDR4DB02 products and became the first vendor in the industry to deliver complete DDR4-2666 memory interface solutions across all DRAM platforms for data center servers. This achievement further solidifies Montage’s leadership position in the memory interface market and enables Montage to be the vendor of first choice among DRAM and server OEMs.

“I’m excited again that Montage is the world’s first vendor to provide Gen2 Plus DDR4 memory interface products to serve future data center needs. Along with our successful track record of being the world's first to deliver Gen1 and Gen2 solutions, we continue to work closely with our ecosystem partners to innovate and accelerate new memory technology developments to address the increasing demand of memory systems in the data center cloud computing era,” said Stephen Tai, President of Montage.

Product Availability

Montage has started sampling its Gen2 Plus DDR4 Registering Clock Driver (Part number: M88DR4RCD02P) since June 2016. The M88DR4RCD02P is available in a 253-ball Flip-Chip Fine-Pitch BGA package.

Montage's Gen2 DDR4 chipset, including a DDR4 Registering Clock Driver (M88DDR4RCD02) and a DDR4 Data Buffer (M88DDR4DB02), have been in mass production and available for shipping since Q1 2016. M88DDR4RCD02 is in a 253-ball Flip-Chip Fine-Pitch BGA package, while M88DDR4DB02 is in a 53-ball Flip-Chip Fine-Pitch BGA package.
