DDR4 Memory Goes To Extremes

SMART Modular Technologies expands its SMART RUGGED product line with a 32GB industrial grade SO-DIMM. The small form factor memory module is primed for ruggedized computing applications used in the defense, industrial, transportation, public safety and other similar segments. With a 32-GB capacity, the industrial grade SO-DIMM easily handles large computing applications that are exposed to extreme operating environments.

The SMART RUGGED 32GB SO-DIMM undergoes a rigorous industrial grade test process that includes a cold boot at -40°C, ramping up to +85°C ambient operation.  These modules are also tested at a high utilization rate while being subjected to this industrial grade temperature range. The company employs customized test boards that expose the memory modules to temperature variations while running at high speed. The high utilization test software ensures that all cells in the DRAM components are fully stressed through the entire temperature cycle.  As the data is being collected over a 10-hour test cycle, the weak modules can be removed further ensuring reliability in the field.

Additionally, the modules feature an underfill and conformal coating that provides protection from shock, vibration, humidity, moisture, and harsh chemicals. SMART’s DDR4 32GB industrial grade SO-DIMM can be operated in environments from -40⁰C to +85⁰C at DDR4-2666 speed grade and are offered in ECC and non-ECC configurations.
