AgigA Tech takes home Edison Award Gold—a prize that honors firms for successful innovation. .
AgigA Tech’s flagship product is the Agigaram, a complex module that basically speeds up computer server performance and provides protection against data losses in the event of power failure. It does this by turning volatile memory in a computer – data that can be lost – into non-volatile memory faster, while also providing a system for saving volatile data during a power outage...

A DDR3+Flash Non-Volatile DIMM: Enough To Revolutionize IT?
This one may have dramatic implications and open up the door to computer performance promises we have heard since the introduction of Windows 95. A fast, instantly responding system without noticeable delays. The technology that may be required to achieve this goal could come from a company called AgigaTech, which received two patents, 8,200,885 and 8,200,929, and is sampling products based on these patents now...

Non-volatile RAM Module Swaps out Batteries for Supercaps
Systems often need some form of non-volatile RAM to protect against memory losses caused by system power interruption or loss. Battery-backed RAM has been the most common form of high-density non-volatile memory, but it has drawbacks, such as long charging times for the battery, a large size, a relatively low-temperature operating environment, requiring low-temperature operation, and limited number of cycles. Cont...

Can Open Source Work for SSD Designs?
...that it can complete pending writes after power fails. This feature, critical to prevent data corruption in the SSD, is similar in concept to products created by San Diego memory-module startup vendor AgigA Tech, which offers a hybrid DRAM/NAND Flash module with an integral ultra-capacitor power backup. It's called AGIGARAM®. Cont...
