    Innodisk, a designer and manufacturer of memory and storage products for industrial applications, offers a wide range of DRAM products with conformal coatings for greater reliability, superior service life, improved performance, and reduced total cost of ownership. Innodisk DRAM modules with conformal coatings applied are protected from moisture, dust and chemical contaminants. This allows for normal operation in extreme environments, where unprotected modules would become unreliable.

    Some system integrators outsource DRAM conformal coating to save on equipment and human resources. However, Innodisk takes an extra step by integrating conformal coating into the production process, to ensure high levels of quality, and reduce repair and maintenance costs for the user.

    The conformal coatings are a layer of chemicals applied to the surface of the DRAM module, to create a protective film for components. The layer thickness varies from 0.03mm up to 0.13 mm, depending on the demands of the application and the materials used. These coatings protect against moisture, contaminants, dust and acid or alkaline materials, in line with IPC-A-610 standards for electronic components. They also protect against issues caused by electrical or thermal conduction, static electricity, and heat.

    Highest Quality Materials
    Innodisk conformal coatings use materials from the world's leading supplier, HumiSeal. They are then processed and applied at Innodisk's in-house production facility. The tightly controlled QA process eliminates the chance of contamination or damage that typically occurs during third-party handling and transportation. Innodisk quality control also ensures that coatings are applied with an even thickness, and avoid excess chemical buildup.

    Innodisk provides a factory warranty for conformal coated DRAM modules. In the event that the coatings are damaged in use, Innodisk is dedicated to resolving RMA issues quickly and efficiently. System integrators can consider Innodisk a one-stop shop for their DRAM products.

    Reliability is an absolute requirement for industrial computers and their components when used in mission-critical applications. Innodisk conformal coatings completely cover the surface of the DRAM modules, except for the gold conductor interface. The coatings shield the DRAM modules from harsh environmental factors, and they increase the life and reliability of the entire system.

    Suitable for demanding applications
    Innodisk Conformal-Coated DRAM Modules are suitable for use in all applications where environmental challenges may be encountered, and reliability is critical. Applications include Defense & Aerospace, with conformal coatings that observe MIL-I-46058C standards; Outdoor Signage, where conformal-coated DRAM modules help systems withstand wind, rain and direct sunlight for real time data handling; Embedded Vehicle Applications, enabling collection and recording of event data in real time, and while keeping the user connected to the Internet of Things (IoTs); and Factory Automation, in which conformal coatings can protect the system from water sprays, airborne dust and acidic materials.

    Innodisk offers a variety of materials and coating methods to suit any application, according to customer requirements.

    We have waterproof motherboards & now waterproof RAM.

    All we need is a waterproof CPU, Graphics Card & PSU and were set to game in a swimming pool.
     
    hellrazor and remixedcat say thanks.

    I welcome the invention of the pool cooled computer that also functions as a filter.

    The most obvious use is to heat the damn pool.

    Innodisk - sounds like a respectable company.

    P.S. Would you buy Hyundai ?
