PMIC A First For Client DDR5 Memory Modules

By Mat Dirjish

A Renesas Electronics subsidiary, Integrated Device Technology (IDT) unveils what it claims is the industry’s first integrated power management IC (PMIC) for small outline and un-buffered DDR5-based dual in-line memory modules (DIMMs). Addressing both personal and embedded computing platforms, the P8911 PMIC will allow next-gen client platforms to take advantage of the higher performance and densities offered by DDR5 memory.

The IDT P8911 is optimized from the previously announced P8900 server PMIC to meet the unique needs of client and embedded applications. The device provides ultra-low current power states such as quiescent and idle modes that can provide significant battery life extension compared to earlier motherboard power solutions. Reportedly, the 8911 PMIC also includes some of the most valuable reliability and serviceability (RAS) features from the server world such as fault protection, error injection, error logging and advanced telemetry.

The IDT P8911 is sampling now. For deeper details and enlightenment, procure and peruse the IDT P8911 datasheet. And to keep in touch with all the relevant developments in the sensors and power-source arenas, sign up for Sensors Daily Newsletters. It’s free, fast, and incredibly easy.
