Heilind Stocking Molex DDR3 DIMM Memory Module Sockets

WILMINGTON, Mass., Feb. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Heilind Electronics, the largest distributor of interconnect products in North America, is now stocking DDR3 DIMM memory module sockets manufactured by Molex Incorporated. An established DDR DRAM interface technology, DDR3 sockets support data rates of 800 to 1600 Mbps with clock frequencies of 400 to 800 MHz, a doubling of speed compared to the DDR2. With a standard operating voltage of 1.5V, the DDR3 consumes 30 percent less power than the DDR2. These and others features make the Molex DDR3 DIMM memory module sockets an apt design choice for demanding memory applications in notebook computers, desktop PCs and servers - as well as for certain industrial automation, medical, and telecommunications equipment.

Offered in low-profile and very-low-profile SMT and press-fit aerodynamic options, the DDR3 socket maximizes air flow around memory modules during operation. Engineered with a 2.40mm seating plane, these sockets use very low-profile modules with maximum seating heights below 2.80mm, in ATCA blade systems. The smaller eye-of-needle compliant pins used in the Molex DDR3 press-fit sockets save valuable space on the PCB by increasing trace-routing density between holes. DDR3 DIMM memory module sockets are also available in an ultra-low-profile option and feature a 1.10mm seating plane with low-level contact resistance of 10 milliohms.

Additional information about Molex DDR3 DIMM Memory Module Sockets available from Heilind -- Accepts JEDEC defined module MO-269 and complies with JEDEC SO-007 socket specs for 100 percent industry compatibility. Different configurations of the product, such as VLP, will be available soon.

-- SMT versions are halogen-free and lead-free.

-- For the ultra-low-profile option, low-level contact resistance of 10milliohms (maximum initial) supports the use of registered DIMM (RDIMM) modules and reduces power consumption in blade servers.

-- Reduced latch-actuation angle of ultra-low-profile DDR3 DIMM memory module sockets creates more room for adjacent components while improving airflow space around memory module socket.

Applications include: -- Data/Communications: Desktop computer, Servers, Workstations -- Industrial Automation: Programmable Logic Controllers -- Medical: Imaging equipment -- Networking: Router/Switch, Servers, Storage systems -- Telecommunications: Base stations Visit Heilind's website for more information about Molex DDR3 DIMM Memory Module Sockets About Heilind ElectronicsFounded in 1974, Heilind Electronics, Inc.

Reflections from an Interop Veteran and Alum

When I returned to the Fiber Mountain™ offices in Connecticut after exhibiting at Interop Las Vegas 2015, I couldn’t help but think about how much the event has evolved through the years. I have been attending this seminal IT and networking conference since its inception in 1986 when it was called the TCP/IP Vendor Workshop, focused on interoperability of various TCP/IP program stacks.

What Fiber Mountain's Interop Recognition Means for Our Industry

When Fiber Mountain™ began its journey with a launch at Interop New York last fall, we certainly believed that we had a solution that would make a significant impact in the data center space.

What On-Board Optics Means for Density and Flexibility

This past week I read an article in Lightwave Magazine and another in Network World about the formation of the Consortium for On-board Optics (COBO), a group that seeks to create specifications and increase the faceplate density of data center switches and adapters.

Scaling Hyperscale in an Age of Exponential Growth and Virtualization

Over the past several years server, network, storage and application virtualization has revolutionized the way hyperscale data centers are built by consolidating workloads. The trend has simplified network architecture significantly and resulted in huge cost savings as well.
