To address the real-time processing needs of large and growing amounts of data, modern software increasingly uses main memory as the primary data store for critical information. This paper creates a new emphasis on high-capacity, high-bandwidth, and high-reliability main memory systems. Conventional and recently-proposed server memory techniques can satisfy these requirements, but at the cost of significantly increased memory power, a key constraint for future memory systems. In this paper, the authors exploit the low-power nature of another high volume memory component - mobile DRAM - while improving its bandwidth and reliability shortcomings with a new DIMM architecture.
