Rambus has acquired the assets of Diablo Technologies to broaden its portfolio in the hybrid DRAM and Flash memory markets.
This acquisition follows the announcement Rambus made in March last year, when it announced a collaboration with IBM to research hybrid memory systems. The company has said that "Expanding emerging memory technology for high memory bandwidth interfaces is key its strategic core business".
For over ten years, 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 centre performance and economics.
According to Rambus, the investment in these technology areas provide a foundation for integrating existing DRAM and Flash along with emerging memories into advanced hybrid memory systems in the future.
“Adding these breakthrough innovations from Diablo Technologies will continue to grow Rambus’ leadership in non-volatile and hybrid DRAM and Flash memory technologies with foundational patents,” said Kit Rodgers, SVP of Technology Partnerships and Corporate Development, Rambus.
Specific terms of the deal are not disclosed.
