Apacer announces the release of the XR-DIMM. This rugged memory module is the first on the market to meet the exacting standards of the US RTCA DO-160G test, an aviation equipment certification that marks the XR-DIMM as resistant to high levels of vibration and therefore ideal for defense and aeronautical applications.
Since 2018, Apacer has been manufacturing DDR4 XR-DIMM modules with rugged stability in mind. Though previous models have been compliant with MIL-STD-810G, this new module is the first to be proven compliant with the US RTCA DO-160G standard, making it the ideal choice for manufacturers who need reliable operation through extreme vibration and shock.
Many defense, rail transit and in-vehicle systems worldwide still rely on standard memory modules. However, forward-looking manufacturers know Apacer’s XR-DIMM modules offer significant improvements on reliability, with additions including 300-pin connectors and mounting holes to keep components in place. This allows the XR-DIMM to remain steady even when vehicles encounter uneven roads, powerful winds, or violent waves and to deliver stable performance.
Besides effectively improving products’ anti-vibration and anti-shock reliability, Apacer’s XR-DIMM also supports multiple protection technologies and value-added applications, providing high-end industrial application markets with the most comprehensive rugged memory solutions.
The XR-DIMM’s sealed board-to-board connector is designed to cope with the severe environments, avoiding the traditional memory’s gold finger’s problem of possible oxidation when exposed to outdoor contaminating environments. Also, the XR-DIMM’s Underfill technology further strengthens its anti-vibration ability and thermal shock resistance.
Meanwhile, the Apacer XR-DIMM also supports the guaranteed industrial-grade wide-temp chips and has a built-in thermal sensor to monitor the memory’s temperature, effectively preventing the memory module from overheating. Additionally, the Conformal Coating and Anti-Sulfuration technology ensure that the products can operate stably not only under humid and dusty environments but also environments where sulfur-containing gases pervade, providing a whole new option in industrial-grade memory.
