Intelligent Memory: Designing Innovative DRAM and Flash Products for Industrial Applications

The latest developments in hot markets like IoT, AI, and consumer electronics continue to drive  the need for new memory product innovations. But are memory suppliers running the risk of leaving customers short of legacy products needed for the longer-lifespan products in the industrial sector? Large suppliers continue to focus on the latest and mainstream technologies while discontinuing some of their older legacy product lines. This often reduces the choice of second or third sources for industrial customers that sometimes lead to significant supply challenges. “Intelligent Memory is unique in its ability to offer long term support of standardized solutions for its customers when others do not have the same ability to support legacy products,” said Neumonda CEO Peter Pöchmüller.

The need for specialized memory for industrial and embedded applications becomes even more evident when longevity is taken into account. Consumer products such as smartphones or laptops have short life cycles, which means that the memory product used in a given smartphone or laptop is also only required for a relatively short time. On the other hand, industrial products such as industrial control boards, airplanes, and large medical equipment have significantly longer operational lifespans. Since these systems are designed to run without major changes for several decades, highly reliable embedded memory is critical to their overall performance — and customers without the resources or ability to discover standardized, long-term solutions for their legacy products will be left behind.

About Intelligent Memory

Intelligent Memory (IM) was founded in 1991, initially as “Pacific Force Technology Limited,” committed to filling the market gap in legacy product support and standardized, high-quality memory product solutions. Upholding its core values of agility, longevity, reliability, and high quality, Intelligent Memory was one of the first to offer a continued long-term supply of legacy products, even in smaller volumes, and continues to offer customers durable products and reliable supply to mitigate any risks of legacy product obsolescence. 

IM designs DRAM and flash memory products for a host of specialized, embedded applications with higher requirements for memory capacity, temperature ranges, reliability, and long-term availability. With an international presence, the company serves a range of industries, e.g., automotive, aerospace, telecommunications, and healthcare.

Intelligent Memory: Product Offerings

Intelligent Memory offers an extensive product portfolio comprising DRAM ICs and modules (from SDR to DDR4) and a variety of managed NAND products for legacy industrial applications. The company offers an entire range of JEDEC-compliant DRAMs and ECC DRAMs, e.g., SDRAM, DDR, DDR2, DDR3, DDR4, and LPDDR4(x). These DRAM components are designed to meet the rigorous demands of various industries, ensuring high performance and reliability.

In addition to DRAM components, Intelligent Memory provides DRAM modules in common form factors and special/custom designs. These modules are available in commercial and industrial temperature grades for durable performance under a wide range of operating conditions.

On the NAND Flash front, the company offers products ranging from legacy CompactFlash cards to the latest PCIe technology. NAND products are offered as removable media, embedded, and BGA components, providing a wide range of options for different applications.

Global Reach with Robust Distribution Channels

Intelligent Memory maintains a robust global distribution network to ensure that products are readily available to customers worldwide, signing distribution agreements with various partners in the Americas, EMEA, APAC, and notably Japan, where Intelligent Memory has recently opened its own regional support office. Together with Intelligent Memory’s regional commercial and technical support teams, the distribution partners provide local support to customers in all major regions and throughout the lifecycle of the customer’s product design.

In the US and Mexico, Intelligent Memory has built a network of distributors and representative firms that cover the majority of the total addressable market. These sales representatives play a vital role in promoting its products and services, helping to drive its growth in these markets, which is then fulfilled through the distribution network in the Americas.

Commitment to Durability, Reliability, and Longevity

Recognizing the critical role of legacy memory devices in industrial applications, IM places a strong emphasis on providing customers with standardized products that can withstand demanding environments and operate reliably under extreme conditions. For customers who may feel left behind by companies pursuing the latest technologies, Intelligent Memory’s capability to support them in their specialized buying decisions provides a uniquely reliable and long-term solution. Rigorous testing and quality control measures ensure that every memory product meets the highest standards of performance and reliability. 

Intelligent Memory is committed to ensuring long-term availability, understanding the need to maintain consistent memory supplies for extended product lifecycles. By offering products with extended availability, the company enables customers to plan and execute their projects with confidence, free from concerns about sourcing and memory obsolescence.
