Montage Technology Introduces Industry’s First Gen1 DDR5 Clock Driver Engineering Sample
With the massive increase in DDR5 data rates, the frequency of clock signals has also increased. Along with it, there are the increasingly challenging clock signal integrity issues. This problem becomes more pronounced after DDR5 speeds of 6400 MT/s and above.
Whether it is a desktop computer or a notebook computer, the memory modules such as UDIMM / SO-DIMM used in it will require an on-DIMM clock driver to buffer and re-drive the clock signal of the memory module to meet the integrity of the high-speed clock signal. performance and reliability requirements.
With nearly 20 years of accumulated expertise and in-depth understanding of memory interface products, Montage Technology has been able to keep pace with the trends in the memory market and has become the first industry-leading manufacturer to introduce the DDR5CK01 chip.
It is reported that the chip is mainly used to buffer the CPU clock signal from the desktop / notebook computer, and then re-output to drive the DRAM chip on the memory module.
Montage Technology claims that the DDR5CK01 chip complies with the JEDEC DDR5CK01 standard and supports data rates up to 6400 MT/s, as well as low-power management modes.
Finally, Montage Technology President Stephen Tai said:
The company is pleased to deliver our first engineering samples of the DDR5CK01 to an industry-leading DRAM supplier to support the development of next-generation PC memory.
Meanwhile, Montage Technology will continue to promote technological innovation and provide memory suppliers with complete and first-class memory interface solutions.
