Rutronik adds Amphenol’s memory sockets for DDR5 modules

Designed for DDR5 and memory modules, SO-DIMM and DIMM sockets by Amphenol Communications Solutions are the latest additions to Rutronik’s line card.

The SO-DIMM and DIMM sockets are a convenient way to expand memory provision and offered in vertical and right-angled formats. 

They can be used in data centres, servers, desktop PCs, notebooks, mass storage, and embedded applications in communications and industrial equipment.

The DDR5 SO-DIMM sockets are half the size of conventional connectors, said Rutronik and enable high speed and bandwidth operation in computing.  They can be used to implement high-speed DDR5 digital validation while allowing a reduction of power consumption and optimised thermal management, said the distributor. 

The right-angled or vertical alignment options provide for 262 possible positions, said Rutronik. The compact design has a pitch of 0.5mm to save space and the sockets are available with a choice of heights, namely 4.0, 8.0, 5.2 or 9.2mm. 

Amphenol’s vertical DDR5 DIMM sockets offer 288 contacts at 0.85mm pitch. They are capable of withstanding shock and vibration testing at high system levels, said Rutronik. The DIMM sockets are designed for the new JEDEC SO-023 interface standard and are claimed to exhibit smooth mating behaviour. They also feature fast data rates and – thanks to the low operating voltage with a small pitch – lower energy consumption, continued the company. 

Rutronik Elektronische Bauelemente was founded in 1973 and is an independent family-owned company. The company says it is one of the world‘s leading broadline distributors, represented worldwide with more than 80 offices and customer support in Europe, Asia and the USA.

The distributor’s broad product portfolio includes semiconductors, passive and electromechanical components as well as embedded boards, storage and displays, and wireless products. The company has automotive, embedded, power and smart divisions with specific products and services tailored to the respective applications.

Technical support for product development and design-in up to the research area, individual logistics and supply chain management complete the range of services.
