Rambus to Demonstrate Latest Advancements in RDRAM, RaSer and Yellowstone Technologies at the Intel Developer Forum.

Business Editors/High-Tech Writers

Intel Developer Forum 2002

LOS ALTOS, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 25, 2002

Rambus Inc. (Nasdaq:RMBS), the leading provider of high-bandwidth chip connection technology, will demonstrate the latest advancements in RDRAM(R), RaSer(TM) and Yellowstone technologies at the Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco, February 25-27. Rambus is once again a Gold Sponsor of IDF and will host two booths including a specialized booth featuring RaSer Serial Link Technology for InfiniBand(TM) applications. As a Gold Sponsor, Rambus will also present this afternoon a comparative analysis of memory solutions.

RaSer Cell for InfiniBand Application

Banderacom's BDC22104 IBandit-TCA is a complete InfiniBand Target Channel Adaptor, with an InfiniBand(TM) MAC, transaction switch, and protocol engine. The IBandit-TCA features a PCI/PCI-X compatible bus interface, and supports four 1x InfiniBand connections.

In the demo, the IBandit-TCA is mounted on a PCI daughter card, which is plugged into a fully-functional server blade. The RaSer cell incorporated in the IBandit-TCA drives the high-speed serial data through the InfiniBand connectors and InfiniBand cables, demonstrating successful transmission and reception of InfiniBand packets at 10 Gbps (4 x 2.5 Gbps) through the media.

RIMM(TM) 4200 System

Rambus will demonstrate the first Pentium(R) 4 system running with RIMM 4200. Features of the system include a 4-layer ASUSTeK motherboard, an Intel(R) 850 chipset and RIMM modules from Kingston and Samsung.

RIMM 4200 is a dual channel RDRAM module operating at 1066 MHz. RIMM 4200 provides 4.2GB/s of memory bandwidth in a single module, which is 160% greater bandwidth than RIMMs shipping in production today and matches the 533 MHz front side bus bandwidth of future CPUs. The demonstration shows that the RIMM 4200 offers maximum performance in a compact design. The compact design allows system designers to incorporate additional features onto the motherboard or fit into the uATX form factor for lower overall system cost.

3.2 GHz Yellowstone Signaling

Rambus engineers will demonstrate a signaling evaluation vehicle for the next generation Yellowstone memory signaling technology. Yellowstone, architected for low cost high-volume platforms, implements ultra low-swing differential signaling to achieve data rates of 3.2 GHz and beyond. The demonstration will exhibit the feasibility of reliably transmitting a 200mV differential signal across a demo platform using commodity PCB and connector technology.
