Netlist, a leading provider of high performance memory solutions for the cloud computing and storage markets, yesterday announced that the United States Patent and Trademark Office has issued the company a notice of allowance for a patent application claiming key functions in non-volatile DIMMs. The patent application used by Netlist focuses primarily on the controlled transfer of critical information from volatile memory to non-volatile memory in response to events such as power disruption or failure.
Hybrid DIMM products have been part of Netlist’s shipments for over five years, included as part of its NVvault® and ExpressVault® product lines. According to the company, over 300,000 Netlist hybrid DIMM products have been used within mission critical servers and storage products. Additionally, Netlist’s technologies applied within PCIe form factor are now used by leading SSD and hybrid storage vendors. Hybrid DIMMs are quickly being adopted as the standard DDR4 memory for all servers.
“We are proud of our achievement in creating the hybrid DIMM,” said Netlist President and CEO, C.K. Hong. “This recent PTO allowance of another hybrid DIMM related patent application validates our technology leadership position in memory products for the storage market that protect and provide the highest bandwidth available for critical data in enterprise systems.”
Having steadily invested in and grown its IP portfolio, Netlist now boasts 36 issued patents and 38 US and foreign pending patent applications in the areas of high performance and high density memory subsystems and hybrid memory technologies.
