Renesas Electronics Corporation, a supplier of advanced semiconductor solutions, introduced the industry’s first industrial temperature DDR5 (5RCD0148H) and DDR4 (4RCD0232K) registered clock drivers (RCDs).
The new industrial temp RCDs support temperatures as low as -40° C and as high as 105° C. This is compared to commercial temperature devices that typically only operate from 0° to 70° C.
Renesas’ industrial temperature RCDs support speeds up to 5200 MT/s for DDR5 and up to 3200 MT/s for DDR4. The devices deliver 2X channel speed improvement, low latency and excellent power management, enabling DDR5 industrial temp dual inline memory modules and memory-down applications, providing wide temperature-range reliability for existing DDR4 applications.
“Emerging segments such as intelligent edge and Open Radio Access Networks (O-RAN) that marry traditional compute and communications architectures together demand server components that can withstand the harsh environments at the network edge,” said Rami Sethi, VP and GM, Data Center Business Division at Renesas. “Renesas has made a concerted effort, in conjunction with our partners, to qualify our RCD products over extended temperature ranges in order to enable these new markets.”
Renesas’ industrial temperature memory interface components can be paired with Renesas’ complementary timing, power and 5G RF and baseband offerings to create comprehensive solutions for a variety wireless access and edge-computing applications.
Renesas is the longest running supplier of memory interface products in the industry with a history of developing complete chipset solutions since the inception of server memory modules.
“It takes a coordinated effort by the memory ecosystem to deliver a wide array of products that reliably extend temperature operating ranges and withstand extreme environmental conditions,” said Malcolm Humphrey, VP and GM of Core Compute Business at Micron. “Micron’s collaboration with partners like Renesas is opening new markets for the next generation of memory at the intelligent edge.”
