Rambus Inc. has introduced a family of DDR5 server power management ICs (PMICs) that will enable a complete memory interface chipset for engineers for data center use cases.

The PMICs for memory include what Rambus claims is an industry-leading extreme current device for high-performance applications.

“DDR5 memory modules incorporate new chip technologies to deliver higher levels of memory performance within the target power envelope,” said Soo-Kyoum Kim, VP of memory semiconductors at IDC. “Rambus, a proven volume supplier of on-module memory interface chips, is ready to provide the critical PMIC components for the DDR5 memory module makers.”

According to Rambus, PMIC is a critical component in the DDR5 memory architecture. This enables more memory channels with higher capacity modules and greater bandwidth.

The family of devices includes:

  • PMIC5020 JEDEC extreme current
  • PMIC5000 JEDEC high current
  • PMIC5010 JEDEC low current

Rambus said the PMIC family comprise a complete memory interface chipset for DDR5 RDIMM configurations and use cases when paired with Rambus’ DDR5 RCD, SPD Hub and temperature sensor ICs.
