Leading supplier of high-speed mixed signal semiconductor solutions for the communications and computing markets, Inphi Corporation (IPHI - Snapshot Report) recently announced that it would showcase the latest Isolation Memory Buffer (iMB) technology-enabled products at the Intel Developer Forum (IDF) 2013.
Inphi’s first product using iMB technology is Load Reduced dual inline memory module (LRDIMM), with a massive memory bandwidth of 32GB that is designed to reduce and minimize the load on the server memory. This, in turn, increases the memory speed.
The second product, double data rate fourth generation (DDR4) generators demonstrate Inphi’s transition from DDR3 to DDR4 using iMB technology.
The new Inphi products are expected to enhance data center performance and consistency, while being compatible with other applications as well.
Semiconductor companies these days are increasingly resorting to seminars to unveil their latest products and services. Recently, in its eighth season of worldwide technical power seminars (2013–14) beginning Sep 2013, Fairchild Semiconductor (FCS - Snapshot Report) provided an overview of its future product planning program. The company is likely to make a detailed presentation on design issues, examples and advancements in the power sector in these seminars. The presentation will be based on the “Engineering Energy Efficiency” theme, and both technologies and techniques will be under focus.
Seminars and forums, as made use of by Fairchild Semiconductor and Inphi, have the potential to be an important platform for promotional campaigns and serve as a common platform to attract diverse potential customers.
Inphi currently carries a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold). Some better-placed stocks in the industry worth considering include Advanced Semiconductor Engineering Inc. (ASX - Snapshot Report) and Microchip Technology Inc. (MCHP - Analyst Report) . Both the stocks carry a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy).
