MEMORY MODULES

Memory module is a broad term used to refer to a series of dynamic random access memory (DRAM) integrated circuits modules mounted on a
printed circuit board and designed for use in personal computers, workstations and servers.

The Company produces three types of memory modules:

UNBUFFERED DUAL IN - LINE MEMORY MODULE(UDIMM)

UDIMM (unbuffered dual in-line memory module) is the most commonly used memory in desktop
and laptop computers. More commonly called unregistered memory, UDIMMs run faster than
registered memory (RDIMM) and cost less, but are not quite as stable as RDIMMs. Unbuffered
DIMMs are the ideal module for high-speed, low-cost computing systems.

SMALL OUTLINE DUAL IN - LINE MEMORY MODULE(SODIMM)

SODIMM (small outline dual in-line memory module) is a type of computer memory built using integrated circuits. SODIMMs (also written SO-DIMMs) are smaller alternative to a DIMM, being roughly half
the size of regular DIMMs. SODIMMs are often used in systems that have limited space, such as
notebooks, small footprint PCs, high-end upgradable office printers, and networking hardware like
routers.


Use in Notebooks, Small footprint PC, High-end office Printers and Routers

REGISTERED DUAL IN - LINE MEMORY MODULE(RDIMM)

RDIMM (registered dual in-line memory module) is dual in-line memory module (DIMM) with
improved reliability. The RDIMM uses a hardware register that buffers the control signals (not the
application data) to the modules. The buffering adds a clock cycle and uses more power but
handles the heavier electrical loads placed on high-speed, high-density memory modules better
than the traditional DIMM, or "unbuffered DIMM" (UDIMM).
