DDR4 Server DIMMs Allow More Efficient Server Designs

Posted by Kari Grosser on Jul 19, 2018 10:45:00 AM

Server memory can be confused with the amount of storage space available on a device, which is a common misconception. Increasing the storage capacity of a server does not improve overall performance, but simply allows for more data to be saved. Instead, server memory allows for a server to write and read information being accessed from storage by the device. The more memory available, the more actions can be read, written, and performed by a server. 

Server or storage applications are designed to compute and store large amounts of data. It has been proven that using DRAM instead of SSD or HDD to build new generation servers provide much better performance, mostly related to the better latency and bandwidth offered by DRAM. To build these efficient systems, you just be able to aggregate large amounts of DDR4 DRAM and there are various options available, like LRDIMM, RDIMM, or 3DS architectures. At the DDR4 interface level, new equalization techniques will help support higher speeds. Larger DRAM capacities multiplied by higher bandwidth is a winning recipe for higher performance computers and storage systems. 

Advantech brings in Micron & ATP server product lines along with validation for the Intel® Purley Platform. This platform uses Intel’s new Xeon scalable processor family which was just recently released. Server premier DDR4-2666MHz registered DIMMs are available in 8GB, 16GB and 32GB kits and are focused on compatibility with the latest server architecture. This provides a significant boost in performance for today’s memory intensive server applications.

A FOG Vision Control Solution for an LED Module Production Line

Posted by Kari Grosser on Jul 5, 2018 10:10:00 AM

A manufacturer of LED module bonding machines was in the process of developing large vision machines that comprised 17 industrial PCs (IPCs) in a single machine. They had been testing several IPC brands to identify the ideal one that would improve the stability of their machines. Given the number of IPCs in each machine, having compact IPCs was a major priority of their project.
