What is SODIMM?
SODIMM (Small Outline DIMM) is a module for systems with limited space, such as notebook computers, small-size industrial computers, and embedded systems. Industrial SODIMMs are high-performance memory modules that are very stable and compatible, manufactured with the finest quality original DRAM chips, rigorously tested for quality assurance, and validated for compatibility. The appearance of a DDR4 module, also known as a dual in-line memory module (DIMM), is similar to that of a DDR3 DIMM. DDR4 has 288 pins compared to 240 in DDR3, and DDR4 SO-DIMMS have 260 pins compared to 204 in DDR3.
What is the purpose of SODIMM?
Small sketch A DIMM is a smaller version of a DIMM that is nearly half the size of a conventional DIMM. Laptops, notebooks, small-footprint personal computers based on Nano-ITX motherboards, high-end upgradable office printers, and networking hardware such as routers and NAS devices all employ industrial ddr4 SODIMM. They frequently have the same data path size and speed ratings as regular DIMMs, but with lower capacities.
What exactly is DDR4?
DDR4 is a fourth-generation double data rate memory standard that is intended to be a better, quicker, and more dependable replacement for DDR3. The appearance of a DDR4 module, also known as a dual in-line memory module (DIMM), is similar to that of a DDR3 DIMM. DDR4 has 288 pins compared to 240 in DDR3, and DDR4 SO-DIMMS have 260 pins compared to 204 in DDR3. The DDR4 key notch has been relocated, and the edge connector has been redesigned to resemble a slightly curved "V" to aid insertion. Because not all pins are engaged at the same moment during module insertion, this design reduces insertion force.
More energy-efficient: DDR4 modules are more energy-efficient than DDR3 modules, which operate at 1.5V or 1.35V. The lower power consumption saves a lot of energy and allows for faster speeds without increasing the power and cooling requirements.
Increased data transfer rates: Data transfers of up to 3200 MT/s are supported by FORESEE's latest DDR4 modules for embedded and industrial applications. DDR4-3200, FORESEE's latest industrial DDR4 product, transports data 70% quicker than DDR3-1866, one of the fastest DDR3 versions available, resulting in a significant increase in theoretical peak performance.
DDR4 will benefit which sector the most?
Telecommunication infrastructures, networking storage systems, network-attached storage (NAS) servers, micro/cloud servers, and embedded systems like industrial PCs all benefit from the industrial ddr4 SODIMM.
DDR4 Sodimm has how many pins?
DDR4, DDR3, DDR2, DDR, and SDRAM memory modules from previous generations are all compatible with SO DIMM sockets. DDR1 and DDR2 SO DIMM sockets have 200 pins, DDR3 SO DIMM sockets have 204 pins, and DDR4 SO DIMM sockets have 260 pins.
Anti-Sulphuration: Sulphur is employed in a wide range of industries. When silver alloys in the DRAM chip come into touch with Sulphur vapors, a corrosion process occurs. Sulphuration reduces conductivity, which can cause rapid product failure. Certain industrial DRAM modules have a protective covering over the sensitive parts to safeguard the silver alloys.
SO-DIMM insertion and removal: Modules and slots in SO-DIMMs are keyed, so they can only be inserted in one direction. To align the module, simply flip it over. Gently put a SO-DIMM module into the slot at a 30-degree angle upwards until the metal contacts of the module disappear into the slot. Then, carefully press the module downwards until it snaps into place (to a flat position parallel to the computer board). The metal arms of the slot will automatically spread and click into the side notches on the SO-DIMM module on both sides. Spread the two metal clamps outward to remove the SO-DIMM module (away from the module). The SO-DIMM will be released and will "pop up" at the same 30-degree angle before being yanked out. Only light force is required to insert and remove SO-DIMMs, and no tools are required.
What kinds of SO-DIMMs are there?
Dual In-line Memory Modules are classified as DIMM, SODIMM, or MicroDIMM. These memory modules are made up of several memory components linked to a circuit board with gold pins on the bottom to connect the module to a motherboard socket. All are used to equip a computer with synchronous dynamic random access memory (SDRAM).
Computer memory modules are available in a range of designs and sizes. Computers (laptops, PCs, and so on) no longer use a single type of memory; instead, today's computers use a mix of memory chips and modules, depending on the requirements and applications. In most cases, an industrial ddr4 sodimm is a good choice. ATP's latest DDR4 modules for embedded and industrial applications support data transfers of up to 3200 MT/s. DDR4-3200, FORESEE's most recent industrial DDR4 product, transmits data 70% faster than DDR3-1866, one of the fastest DDR3 versions available, resulting in a considerable boost in theoretical peak performance.
