Addressing obsolescence mitigation in embedded and industrial systems, ATP and Micron Technology have teamed up to ensure the continuous supply of legacy DDR2 memory modules in the market. ATP, a manufacturer of industrial memory and storage solutions, will collaborate with global semiconductor maker Micron Technology, Inc. to continue manufacturing Micron DDR2 SO-DIMMs, UDIMMs and RDIMMs after Micron announced end-of-life (EOL) notices for these modules.
According to the collaboration agreement, ATP will produce DDR2 DRAM modules for customers that cannot upgrade to newer-generation platforms and still maintain the use of platforms supporting these memory types. With DDR2 still widely deployed in the US, Japan and Europe, ATP and Micron expect these markets to benefit significantly from the consistent supply of DDR2 memory for industrial/embedded systems installed in high-reliability and mission-critical environments. All modules will be manufactured, tested and validated by ATP, according to the equivalent specifications and testing/validation processes of the respective Micron part number.
The DDR2 Continuity Program will be implemented on a staggered basis within three manufacturing phases. DDR2 DRAM modules from ATP will be available in select form factors and densities starting Q4 2018.
