RAM Advancements


 RAM Advancements - From SDR to DDR4 and More

Since the development of various PCs for modern smartphones memory standards have always been a factor determining the performance of the entire system. Over time it has undergone constant updates from SDR or a single data rate RAM found in older computers of recent times to DDR or the recent dual data rate.


From the first days, one of the significant factors affecting the performance of the device was the inability of the memory speed to match the CPU speed. 


The introduction of the dual data rate was a revolution as it introduced the memory bus performance depending on the CPU speed. This resulted in the optimal performance of the system.


The move to SRAM and DDR has undergone constant updates to meet the demand for ultra-modern innovations at a rapid pace. 


From a 200 MHz DDR SRAM in early 2001 to a 400 MHz DDR2 in 2002 this was just the beginning of an impressive journey. At the end of 2007 DDR2 was able to withstand memory speeds up to 1066MHz. In 2009 there were even better levels with the introduction of DDR3.


Today the latest offspring of the DDR4 series have conquered the market with even better performance and powerful control features. 


In addition to performance and speeds, it includes enhanced power consumption for enterprise applications tablets micro-servers and ultra-thin client applications.


This new solution has many proven advantages over its predecessors. This is one of the main reasons that most applications roll out the previous version to update with DDR4. It comes with a data rate of 2 GB to 16 GB that allows for large sub-capacity systems. 


Compared to a maximum of 16 GB per DDR3 DIMM the DDR4 standard allows a DIMM capacity of up to 64 GB.


There are many types of DDR4 sockets and modules available in the market. Ultra-Low Profile (ULP) vertical DIMM sockets provide an ideal solution for ultra-thin applications. 


This helps in convenient memory expansion in desktops servers workstations embedded applications in communications and industrial equipment. The overall reduced profile helps reduce board space. 


These are also equipped with low resistance contacts that minimize power consumption within the hardware. In addition to offering many such facilities, the sockets are compatible with the standard DIMM to help streamline airflow.


Although DDR4 opens up a more substantial path that lays the groundwork for massive technological innovations it still will not stop here.


 Technology is also leaping towards its further advancement. DDR5's upcoming industry standard that delivers even better speed and performance is now designed for use with video cards game consoles and high-performance computing.
