Since the company’s inception more than 10 years ago, AgigA Tech has built up the industry’s most comprehensive portfolio of patents related to hybrid non-volatile RAM. As a result of this early pioneering work on the emerging non-volatile DIMM, or NVDIMM, technology standard, AgigA holds several patents fundamental to the base technology.

“As a key developer of NVDIMM technology, it is critical for AgigA to build up a strong IP and patent portfolio not only for ourselves, but for our customers and partners as well,” said Ron Sartore, president and CEO of AgigA Tech. “This latest patent, although more subtle in nature than our other key patents, is important to meet the high-performance design requirements of persistent memory modules, including NVDIMM-N.”

The NVDIMM-N standard defined by JEDEC offers a new class of non-volatile memory developed to meet the need for higher-performance persistent memory for enterprise-class storage and server applications, providing the low latency and nearly infinite endurance of DRAM, along with the non-volatility of Flash. Enterprise and data center applications were previously constrained by the higher latency of existing storage solutions such as SSDs, but they are now able to remove a significant system bottleneck with the deployment of NVDIMM-N solutions in their storage hierarchy.
