Transcend Announces 32GB DDR3 Load-Reduced DIMMs

Transcend Information, Inc., a worldwide leader in storage and multimedia products, today announced the arrival of its 32GB DDR3 Load-Reduced DIMM (LRDIMM) memory module. An important component of today's powerful servers, LRDIMMs use a specially designed buffer to minimize the load on the server memory bus, allowing administrators to maximize memory capacity, increase performance, and reduce the power consumption of their systems.

In standard RDIMM technology, the data bus connects directly to the multiple ranks of DRAM chips on the module, which increases electrical load and limits system speed as more modules are added. In contrast, Transcend's DDR3 Low Voltage LRDIMMs feature a full memory buffer chip on the module, which acts as a go-between for all signals sent from the host to the DRAM chips, reducing the electrical load on all interfaces. Compared to standard RDIMMs or UDIMMs, a system using Transcend LRDIMMs can support more modules per channel and higher maximum memory capacity without sacrificing speed.

Transcend Announces Copy Protected Memory Card Technology

Transcend Information, Inc., a worldwide leader in storage and multimedia products, today announced the launch of its SD/microSD memory card copy protection solutions. Partially-protected and partially-free areas, read-only CD emulation, customized device security, excellent compatibility and high capacity are some of the features that make Transcend's Copy Protection SD/microSD cards ideal for use in OEM applications and distributing multimedia files.

For publishers of audio or video files, or educational institutions looking to distribute course material to students, SD and microSD memory cards present a portable and cost effective way to deliver digital content. Transcend's Copy Protection SD/microSD cards ensure the safety of valuable intellectual property by allowing access to media while preventing end users from making unauthorized copies. For added value, any space not utilized by pre-loaded data can be freely used as a normal SD card. When the protected data is deleted, the previously occupied capacity will be released as free space. Another available option is to make the entire SD/microSD card read-only so that end users cannot write to, modify or delete any part of the card capacity; only executing pre-loaded content is allowed in this optional configuration.
