Montage Technology Co., Ltd. announced it has taken the lead in trial production of the 3rd-generation DDR5 Registering Clock Driver (RCD03) designed for use in DDR5 RDIMMs. With its blazingly fast 6400 MT/s data rate, the RCD03 sets a new bar for DDR5 memory performance in upcoming server platforms. It unlocks dramatic capacity, bandwidth, and latency improvements to meet the growing demands of data center, cloud, and AI applications. The RCD03 marks a major advancement in Montage's continued role as an innovator driving rapid DDR5 developments. This chip achieves a 14.3% speed increase over the 2nd-gen DDR5 RCD and a 33.3% increase over the 1st--gen, making it one of the fastest DDR5 memory interface solutions available.

Leveraging enhancements like a dual-channel architecture and lower power supplies (1.1V VDD and 1.0V VDDIO), the RCD03 significantly improves the latency while reducing the power consumption as compared to DDR4 RCDs. Another key benefit is its support for up to 256 GB DRAM per module, quadrupling the capacity of modules in DDR4 generation. In addition to its RCD portfolio, Montage provides a comprehensive lineup of DDR5 infrastructure solutions including SPD EEPROM with Hubs, Temperature Sensors, and Power Management ICs, which are essential in complete DDR5 module designs optimized for performance, reliability and power efficiency.
