Micron and ATP To Collaborate on DDR2 Continuity Program

Partnership Agreement Ensures Legacy DRAM Module Supply Stability

Published on behalf and with permission of ATP Electronics

Taipei, Taiwan (October 2018) – Recognizing the importance of obsolescence mitigation in embedded and industrial systems, two of the biggest names in advanced storage, memory and semiconductor technologies have teamed up to ensure the continuous supply of legacy DDR2 memory modules in the market. ATP, a leading manufacturer of high-performance industrial memory and storage solutions, will collaborate with global semiconductor leader Micron Technology, Inc. to continue manufacturing Micron DDR2 SO-DIMMs, UDIMMs and RDIMMs after Micron announced end-of-life (EOL) notices for these modules.

According to the collaboration agreement, ATP will produce DDR2 DRAM modules for customers that cannot upgrade to newer-generation platforms and still maintain the use of platforms supporting these memory types. With DDR2 still widely deployed in the US, Japan and Europe, ATP and Micron expect these markets to benefit significantly from the consistent supply of DDR2 memory for industrial/embedded systems installed in high-reliability and mission-critical environments. All modules will be manufactured, tested and validated by ATP, according to the equivalent specifications and testing/validation processes of the respective Micron part number.

“Micron is dedicated to maximizing customers’ infrastructure investments by ensuring prolonged support for legacy systems and applications. Our proven partnership with ATP gives our customers the benefit of receiving similar Micron products and services to support their current platforms while ATP ensures the stability of their operations well into the future,” said Kris Baxter, vice president, Micron Technology, Inc.

“A long product cycle is vital to the sustainability of industrial business operations,” said Marco Mezger, vice president, ATP Electronics, Inc. “The DDR2 Continuity Program demonstrates ATP’s enduring partnership with Micron as well as our shared commitment to extend supply stability, not only of the latest-generation products, but also of legacy memory modules to continue supporting the memory requirements of customers that are not yet able to make the transition. Through this collaboration, customers will be assured of steady supply to support their operations.”

The DDR2 Continuity Program will be implemented on a staggered basis within three manufacturing phases. DDR2 DRAM modules from ATP will be available in select form factors and densities starting Q4 2018.
