Could IDTI be licensing or second-sourcing RDIMM-compatible HyperCloud ?
I would like to thank one of the readers for suggesting that IDT maybe entering the LRDIMM/HyperCloud space. While IDT intention to deliver LRDIMM in late 2012 was known, the comment sparked an examination of what options IDTI would have if it were actively to use HyperCloud for it’s product and whether it would justify IDTI decision to not offer any LRDIMM product for the Romley launch.
Netlist will eventually face the problem of second-source for HyperCloud.
Currently they have the capability of supplying most of the demand for HyperCloud – both at the 16GB and 32GB levels – they have capacity for millions of memory modules at their facility.
However, they will eventually be required to establish a second-source for HyperCloud by the OEMs.
