JEDEC Meeting to Take Place at Cypress Headquarters

7/14/2003 - Cypress Semiconductor Corporation (NYSE: CY), a world leader in timing technology solutions, announced that it is hosting the JEDEC Solid State Technology Association JC-16, -40, -42 Interim Meeting, July 14 and 15, 2003. The meeting — open to JEDEC member companies — will run from noon until 6:00 p.m. on Monday and from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday.

Chaired by IBM, the registered dual inline memory modules (DIMMs) task group is comprised of the JC-16, -40 and -42 standards committees. The task group will be working to define next-generation advanced memory buffers to enhance the capabilities of dual data rate (DDR) chipsets in registered DIMM applications. The goal of these advanced memory buffers will be to solve the peak bandwidth limitations beyond two DIMMs per channel in the current DDR II architecture and to allow for the larger memory capacity required by mid-range and high-end computer platforms.

“As a long-standing member of JEDEC, Cypress is honored to host the kick-off meeting for this critical task group,” said Rob Raghavan, senior product marketing manager for Cypress’s Timing Technology Division. “As an active participant in this task group, Cypress hopes to work with our esteemed colleagues and customers to resolve the DDR II bandwidth bottleneck issue and to help drive next-generation registered buffered DIMMs.”

The JEDEC meeting will be held in the auditorium of Building 6 on the Cypress campus, 198 Champion Court, San Jose, California 95134. Meeting registration begins at noon. For directions to Cypress headquarters, please visit More information on JEDEC is available at
