AVL and VIA Announce DDR400 Memory Validation Program
Advanced Validation Labs Has Successfully Validated Memory Modules For VIA's DDR400 Chipset Platforms
Fountain Valley, CA (August 7, 2003) - Advanced Validation Labs® (AVL), a leading validation and testing services
company and VIA® Technologies, Inc, a leading innovator and developer of silicon chip technologies and PC platforms
solutions, today announced the launch of its DDR400 memory module validation program.
With the release of the VIA PT800 and KT600 chipsets for the Intel® Pentium® 4 and the AMD® Athlon® XP processors, memory
manufacturers and DRAM suppliers have started to ship DDR400 (PC3200) modules and devices specifically tested by AVL for
compatibility with VIA chipsets.
The VIA-certified system validation involves the testing of memory modules using VIA's PT800 and KT600 reference platforms
and AVL's leading-edge equipment and software. The validation test process includes thermal testing to further stress
memory modules under a demanding set of compatibility tests.
"AVL's quick-turn validation services ensure compatibility and interoperability of memory modules with high performance
VIA DDR400 chipset platforms," commented Chewei Lin, Vice President of Product Marketing, VIA Technologies, Inc. "This
collaboration with AVL allows us to speed time to market and sustain the confidence of end users eager to upgrade to
higher bandwidth memory technologies."
"AVL is very pleased to play an integral role in VIA's industry leading DD400 validation program," stated Larry Ho,
Director of Technical Labs, Advanced Validation Labs. "With AVL's extensive engineering experience and quick-turn
validation services, customers will be able to verify that their memory modules have been thoroughly tested with AVL's
