SMART services the global HPC (High Performance Computing) and data center markets with only the highest quality DRAM available today. Because SMART manufactures memory modules for Tier-1 OEMS and DRAM suppliers, it is fully aware of the system-level, PCB-level, IC-level, and thermal issues that affect system stability, data throughput, and overall system performance. With its SMTL services, SMART ensures that its products are compatible with Intel®-based and AMD®-based servers from concept to production.
An additional step to SMTL is Vendor Failure Analysis (VFA). SMART's component engineering management team follows up with vendors by having the vendor provide a VFA report. Its component engineering team reviews the results to make sure they are accurate and complete. If needed, the team can follow up with the vendor if any purges need to be made, or if the team can help implement any date code restrictions. SMART's level of technical support continues to be an industry differentiator among memory manufacturers.
