Rambus has acquired the assets of Diablo Technologies to broaden its portfolio in the hybrid DRAM and Flash memory markets.
These patentes augment the company's existing Rambus NVDIMM portfolio and complement its high-bandwidth, low-power memory technologies.
Specific terms of the deal are not disclosed.
Diablo Technologies was a pioneer in the development of NVDIMM technologies for high-speed, low-power, and low-latency bridging and switching products targeted at the server and storage markets. Having developed memory buffer and software solutions leveraging an all-Flash memory sub-system, Diablo Technologies enabled an architecture to rewrite the rules of data center performance and economics.
Expanding emerging memory technology for high memory bandwidth interfaces is key to Rambus’ strategic core business. The company has also been collaborating with IBM to research hybrid memory systems, as announced previously.
