Founded in 2000 and headquartered in Irvine, California, Netlist is a leading provider of high-performance modular memory subsystems to the world’s premier OEMs. Netlist specializes in hybrid memory – the merging of DRAM and NAND flash raw materials to create memory solutions. The Company’s patented memory technologies provide superior performance, and high density in a cost efficient solution. From database to enterprise applications, Netlist serves diverse industries that require superior memory performance to empower critical business decisions in today’s data-driven environment.

Netlist has a long history of being the first to market with disruptive new products such as the first load-reduced DIMM, HyperCloud®, based on Netlist’s distributed buffer architecture later adopted by the industry for DDR4 LRDIMM. Netlist was also the first to bring NAND flash to the memory channel with its NVvault® NVDIMM. These innovative products built on Netlist’s early pioneering work in areas such as embedding passives into printed circuit boards to free up board real estate, doubling densities via quad-rank double data rate (DDR) technology, and other off-chip technology advances that result in improved performance and lower costs compared to conventional memory.

Netlist continues this tradition with the introduction of HybriDIMM, the industry’s first Storage Class Memory product built on commodity DRAM and flash. HybriDIMM is the first SCM product to operate in current Intel® x86 servers without BIOS and hardware changes, and the first unified DRAM-NAND solution that scales memory to terabyte storage capacities and accelerates storage to nanosecond memory speeds.

Netlist holds a portfolio of patents, many seminal, in the areas of hybrid memory, storage class memory, rank multiplication and load reduction, among others. The strength of Netlist’s patent portfolio reflects its many years of research and development and track record of bringing disruptive new products to market.

With state-of-the-art, wholly owned, ISO- and OSHAS-certified manufacturing and testing facilities in Suzhou, China, Netlist’s strategy is to marry its unique board-level intellectual property with a thorough understanding of semiconductor building blocks and system-level applications to deliver performance, cost, and time-to-market advantages to OEMs.
