AVL and SiS Announce First Results Of DDR333 Memory Validation Program
For Release 8:00 a.m. EST, April 30, 2002:
In Conjunction with Advanced Validation Labs, SiS Launches
JEDEC Standard Validation Program for DDR333 Memory Modules
Fountain Valley, CA (April 30, 2002) - Advanced Validation Labs® (AVL),
a leading validation and testing services company and Silicon Integrated Systems
Corporation® (SiS), a leading core logic and graphics chip supplier, today
announced its DDR333 memory module validation program for the SiS645/645DX chipset.
With the launch of the SiS645/645DX for the Intel® Pentium 4,
memory manufacturers and DRAM suppliers have started to ship DDR333 (PC2700) modules and
devices to be tested by AVL for compatibility with SiS chipsets. In addition, the SiS645/645DX
supports DDR333/DDR266/PC133 memory technology with up to three gigabytes of maximum
The AVL/SiS validation program involves the testing of memory modules using the SiS645/645DX
and AVL's leading-edge equipment and software. The validation process includes the application of
different voltage and thermal ranges to further stress memory modules under test.
"AVL provides a comprehensive suite of test services with high quality and stringent standards in
the field of testing and validation of memory. In close cooperation with AVL, SiS is able to assure
all the products are in line with world-class standards," said Alex Wu, director, Integrated Product
"AVL is confident that its collaboration with SiS will enable users looking for validated modules
to feel confident that the memory they purchase is reliable and compatible with SiS solutions.
Our customers will be able to verify that their memory modules have been thoroughly tested
with AVL's comprehensive validation procedure," stated Larry Ho, director, technical labs,
Advanced Validation Labs.
