Apacer, manufacturer of industrial-grade memory, has announced the release of the XR-DIMM. This rugged memory module is the first in the market to meet the exacting standards of the US RTCA DO-160G test, an aviation equipment certification that marks the XR-DIMM as resistant to high levels of vibration and therefore ideal for defense and aeronautical applications.
Since 2018, Apacer has been manufacturing DDR4 XR-DIMM modules with rugged stability in mind. Though previous models have been compliant with MIL-STD-810G, this new module is the first to be proven compliant with the US RTCA DO-160G standard.
Many defense, rail transit and in-vehicle systems worldwide still rely on standard memory modules. However, forward-looking manufacturers know Apacer’s XR-DIMM modules offer significant improvements on reliability, with additions including 300-pin connectors and mounting holes to keep components in place. This allows the XR-DIMM to remain steady even when vehicles encounter uneven roads, powerful winds, or violent waves and to deliver stable performance.
As a well-established manufacturer in Taiwan, Apacer benefits from access to a booming aviation industry.
