OCZ Technology Group, a maker of ultra-high performance and high-reliability memory, in a collaborative effort with Inphi Corporation, a leader in precision timing and high-speed electronic components, announced the release of Zero-Buffer DDR (ZB-DDR) technology for unbuffered memory modules.

Using discreet zero-delay clock buffers, ZB-DDR technology combines the robustness of server class memory with the low latency of unbuffered modules, resulting in better data integrity, lower noise, and lower susceptibility to interference over a wider frequency spectrum while still remaining fully compatible with all current motherboards, according to OCZ’s beliefs.

“At the module level, only with a clock buffer delay at 50 picoseconds or less, is it possible to generate loss-less memory clock signals that are not subjected to the impact of noise found in a distributed clock tree,” said Dr. Michael Schuette, Director of Technology Development at OCZ Technology.

 “We are very pleased to have OCZ as a partner in this pioneering hi-tech endeavour. Precision clock signals provided by our clock buffers are the key to signal integrity and minimized error rates,” said Desi Rhoden, Executive Vice President of Inphi Corporation.

ZB-DDR technology uses Inphi INCU 877 clock buffers with a custom-developed PCB matched to the impedance of the clock buffer. Other details concerning the modules, like pricing and availability, were not revealed at press time.

OCZ positions itself as a technology company, which is why not all technologies the firm is probing make it into the market.
