Product Brief NVDIMM: Persistent Memory Netlist NVDIMM DDR4 JEDEC Standard Module Combines DRAM Capacity/Performance with NAND Persistence Non-volatile dual in-line memory module (NVDIMM) is persistent memory that combines DRAM and storage in a 288pin DIMM socket. The NVDIMM operates as a standard registered DIMM (RDIMM) and drops into the DDR4 memory channel. The device has a DDR4 protocol that is JEDEC compliant and has DRAM latency and bandwidth. A non-volatile persistent memory solution that provides performance and persistence for a broad range of enterprise server and storage applications. Applications: • Logging • Journaling NVDIMM Operation • RAID Cache • In-memory database • Big data analytics Advantages & Benefits: • JEDEC NVDIMM compliant • Fast backup times – 5s/GB • High energy ultrathin supercap at 550C • High performance 2DPC configuration • Virtual zero erase time • Integrated into x86 BIOS • 30x greater IOPs vs. NVME SSD* • 1000x lower latency vs. NVMe SSD The Netlist NVvault NVDIMM-N implements the JEDEC compliant DDR4 RDIMM and NVDIMM-N and logic subsystem that preserves the contents of the DRAM during system power losses. The NVDIMM consists of NAND components to store the DRAM data, isolation components to decouple the DIMM from the system during power failure, a backup power circuit to provide power to the DIMM during power failure, and a logic device to control the operations. Nvvault backups to and restores from NAND allowing data to be preserved through a power loss. During this operation, the DRAM is completely isolated from the normal system memory bus and cannot be accessed by the system. The system controls the configuration and operation of NVvault via a register set accessible through the SMBus.
