Pericom Semiconductor Delivers Industry Dominant Performance DDR2 Buffer and PLL for Registered DIMMs

Pericom Semiconductor Corporation (NASDAQ:PSEM) , a worldwide preferred supplier of high-speed integrated circuits and frequency control devices, today announced the release of its industry leading performance DDR2 Registered Buffers and PLL Clock for Registered DIMMs. These DIMMs are found in next generation higher performance systems such as servers, routers, switches, and workstations.

PI74SSTU32864A/SSTU32866 Registered Buffers and PI6CU877 Phase-Locked Loop Clock Driver are specifically optimized to offer industry-leading performance to drive DDR2-400 (PC2-3200) and DDR2-533 (PC2-4300) Memory Modules. The PI74SSTU32866 Registered Buffer includes a parity logic function that provides an additional security feature of detecting data error. These new Intel validated components offer the industry's highest post register timing margins while providing superior signal integrity.


"Pericom is pleased to announce Intel validation of it new DIMM products. Our Registers and Clock Driver provide a complete JEDEC standard DDR2 DIMM solution. This new enhanced solution demonstrates our commitment to cutting edge products in support of the DIMM market. Pericom's objective in Memory Module support is to maintain superior technology, leadership in speed, drive, and power performance, while backing it up with our award winning customer service," said Jaci Chang, Product Marketing.
