Silicon Power, a manufacturer of various memory products, has announced the formal launch of memories with built-in temperature sensors. It is not the first, as the more familiar Transcend company unveiled such memories earlier this month.
The new memories contain a built-in temperature sensor on top of the memory module. The registrations do not reveal whether there is a single sensor on each memory module or sensor on each memory chip on the printed circuit board (PCB), but it is hard to believe that the companies have attached to each sensor reading the temperature, as this is tolerated both in terms of readings and quantity The chips in each array.
The exposed memory is intended for servers and workstations, as a result of error correction support (ECC). Currently, only DDR3 models have been launched at 1066 MHz and 1333 MHz clock frequencies, with CL9 and CL7 respectively. The voltage required by the memories is not unusual, and is based on 1.5 Volts and following the mission to systems based on the Intel Nehalem platform. In addition to a single volume of 1 and 2 gigabytes, Triple Channel Kits are also sold with a maximum volume of 6 gigabytes. Similar to desktop memories, the company provides lifetime warranty.
The advantage of using the temperature sensor in server systems is the ability to monitor and maintain reliability on the server side, as well as stability and efficiency. As the sensor readings have the possibility of changing the memory utilization rates in critical situations, which will prevent system slow down and, in some cases, total collapse and destruction of the memory itself.
We are expecting to see more and more companies launching זיכרון While the memory is only intended for the server market, as in the past, the product will quickly migrate to the desktop world, giving hovers and performance enthusiasts a new tool that has not yet existed, and is considered another advantage when it comes to monitoring the system.
