Battery-Free AGIGARAM® Nonvolatile Memory Delivers Speed of DDR4 DRAM While Safely Backing Critical Data in Power OutagesSANTA CLARA, Calif., Aug. 11, 2015 — (PRNewswire) — AgigA Tech Inc., a subsidiary of Cypress Semiconductor Corp. (NASDAQ: CY) and a leading provider of high-speed, high-density, battery-free nonvolatile memory solutions, will demonstrate its DDR4 Nonvolatile DIMM (NVDIMM) technology in industry-standard server platforms at the Flash Memory Summit August 10-13, 2015. The active demonstrations will have multiple NVDIMMs, including AgigA Tech's flagship DDR4 AGIGARAM® solution, running to show memory persistence, performance and other key features of the technology. Performance benchmarks will also be shown comparing NVDIMM to other storage technologies. The demo will take place in conjunction with the NVDIMM Special Interest Group (SIG) in the Storage Network Industry Association's (SNIA) booth number 820 here at the Santa Clara Convention Center.
Jeff Chang, AgigA Tech's Vice President of Marketing and Business Development and co-chair of the NVDIMM SIG, will participate in a panel discussion (Session 202-A) entitled "Flash on the Memory Bus," which will take place on Wednesday, August 12 from 9:45 to 10:50 a.m.
AGIGARAM is a new class of nonvolatile memory developed to meet the need for higher-performance persistent memory for enterprise-class storage and server applications. By combining industry-standard DRAM and NAND Flash technology, AGIGARAM provides the low latency and nearly infinite endurance of DRAM, along with the non-volatility of Flash. During normal operation, AGIGARAM appears to the host system as a standard JEDEC DRAM memory module. In the event of an unexpected power loss, the critical data residing in the DRAM is saved to onboard NAND Flash using a battery-free power source based on ultracapacitors. When power is returned, the in-memory state of the DRAM at the time power was lost is restored from the Flash. The recovery time from a catastrophic power-loss event is almost immediate since the restore operation takes a matter of seconds and recharging the ultracapacitors takes only minutes. AGIGARAM is designed to integrate easily into the DIMM slots of industry-standard server and storage platforms, providing the fastest possible persistent memory for use cases such as write caching, metadata storage and other in-memory computing applications.
