Memory technology maker Rambus will announce on Monday support for a technology that allows computers to keep working even if a memory chip fails completely.
The so-called “chipkill” technology is a feature in demand among computer makers selling machines that stay up and running even when major components fail. The capability is particularly important for the mid- to high-end server market.
Samples of the memory chips using the chipkill technology are expected this year. The technique, also called “interleaved data mode,” will arrive with 256-megabit chips.
