Renesas Releases 5DB0148 DDR5 Data Buffer

September 9, 2020 Perry Cohen

Renesas announced the release of the 5DB0148, a high-speed, low-power DDR5 data buffer for data center, server, and high-performance workstation applications.

The JEDEC-compliant DDR5 data buffer 5DB0148 allows for higher speeds and lower latency for load-reduced dual inline memory modules (LRDIMMs). The first generation of DDR5 LRDIMMs enables a bandwidth increase of more than 35% over DDR4 LRDIMMs operating at 3200 MT/s.

“Our DDR5 data buffers are critical to enabling high performance DRAM solutions such as LRDIMMs, alternative high density modules and heterogeneous memory solutions, all of which empower a new generation of high performance computing applications,” said vice president of the data center business decision at Renesas Rami Sethi, in a press release.

The new Renesas DDR5 data buffer 5DB0148 is optimized to work with the other DDR5 Renesas components on an LRDIMM memory module, including the power management IC P8900, the registered clock driver 5RCD0148, the SPD Hub SPD5118, and the temperature sensor TS5111.
