Argosy DDR5 SO-DIMM Connector Are Ready

DDR5 are expected to grow rapidly and reach around 40% market adoption by 2022, according to Cadence. DRAM brands announced DDR5 successive from Q4 2020. Also, Intel confirmed that the Alder Lake series CPUs are scheduled to launch this year, which is the first CPU to support DDR5, PCIe 5.0 & Thunderbolt 4. Meanwhile, AMD Ryzen 7000 series CPUs are planned to launch in early 2022, to support DDR5, PCIe 5.0 & USB4. In summary, DDR5 Generation has come, and Argosy’s DDR5 connectors are ready!

Argosy stepped in DDR connector market since 2006, to manufacture DDR2 & DDR3 SO-DIMM connectors. As technology transition, we continued to develop DDR4 SO-DIMM & Long DIMM connectors, and increased our global laptop market share gradually- from 30% in 2016 to 40% in 2018. In 2020, our DDR3/4 SO-DIMM connectors shipment achieved over 100KK pcs with global laptop market share over 50%.

Additionally, we joined DDR5 spec. design with JEDEC & Intel since 2018, and launched DDR5 SO-DIMM & Long DIMM (incl. R DIMM & U DIMM). Our DDR5 connectors have been approved the best performance in Signal Integration, High Temperature Warpage & Soldering tests (meet IPC-A-610 Class 2) among global suppliers. All the tests were conducted by JEDEC, Intel, global brands & OEMs.

While COVID-19 outbreak, our factories faced shutdown for short term, but eventually were able to recover over 50% capacity within 3 weeks. Also, no material shortage since epidemic outbreak and even doubled production output in 2020 overall.

On the whole, we demonstrate excellent design, manufacture and management capability to serve customers with high performance, assured quality and stable lead-time.
