Innodisk DDR5 RDIMM Powers Semiconductor Automatic Optical Inspection
TAIPEI, Dec. 26, 2022 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

Innodisk, a global leader in industrial-grade storage and embedded peripherals 
is proud to announce its solution to issues faced by Automated Optical 
Inspection (AOI) applications relating to, and caused by the shortcomings of 
consumer DRAM.

With the recent launch of Innodisk AI, which provides a complete AI solution 
for industrial integrators, DDR5 series DRAM plays a key role for a variety of 
applications, including Automated Optical Inspection solutions. With the rise 
in demand for semiconductors, and the trend towards smaller and smaller 
processes, the need for automatic systems to detect semiconductor production 
defects has grown significantly. AOI systems are now used at every step of the 
semiconductor manufacturing process, and their stability is paramount to 
production efficiency.

Modern AOI systems face three core issues that Innodisk's DDR5 
ng-dimm) (registered memory) help to solve: memory bandwidth, accuracy, and 
high temperatures.

Memory Bandwidth

Due to the high memory bandwidth needed for training models, AOI systems often 
struggle when lower capacity modules are used. Innodisk's DDR5 RDIMM solves 
this issue with large capacities, including 32GB and 64GB modules.


Due to semiconductor processes going down to the nanometer level, the 
resolution requirement and accuracy requirements for AOI systems has increased. 
Innodisk's DDR5 RDIMM features a new dual 40-bit sub-channel architecture, and 
supports rigorous side-band ECC, which can handle AOI's high-accuracy detection 

High Temperatures

The high-speed and high-precision inspection that AOI systems provide generates 
high amounts of heat at the DRAM level, and this can cause overall system 
temperatures to rise sharply. Innodisk's DDR5 RDIMM solves these heat concerns 
via a two-pronged strategy, involving an integration of both hardware and 
software. Two thermal sensors on the modules detect ambient temperatures, and 
two software tools: iCAP( 
(Innodisk Cloud Administration Platform), and 
iSMART( monitor 
temperatures and send warning messages.

Although memory technology is constantly being updated, Innodisk's observation 
of the industry's current situation shows that customers' demands for new 
technologies vary greatly. Therefore, Innodisk not only provides the most 
complete industrial-grade DDR5 and DDR4 products, but also legacy products such 
as DDR3, DDR2, DDR and SDRAM. These memory modules will continue to be supplied 
with stable pricing, original IC, and the same great longevity support as all 
Innodisk products.
