COLORADO SPRINGS, CO--(Marketwire -04/23/12)- Ramtron International Corporation (NASDAQ: RMTR - News), a leading developer and supplier of nonvolatile ferroelectric random access memory (F-RAM) and integrated semiconductor products, today announced that it has been added to NVIDIA's Preferred Vendor List and has been invited to participate in the GPU Technology Conference (GTC) 2012 in San Jose, CA on May 14-17.
GPU computing uses high-performance, energy-efficient GPUs (graphics processing units) as co-processors to accelerate CPUs (central processing units) for general purpose, scientific and engineering computing. GPUs improve the performance of CPUs by offloading computationally intensive parallel portions of the application code. GTC advances global awareness of GPU computing and visualization and their importance to the future of science and innovation.
GTC 2012 will feature the latest breakthroughs and rich content in GPU computing. Spanning four full days of world-class education delivered by some of the greatest minds in GPU computing, GTC will showcase the dramatic impact that parallel computing is having on scientific research and commercial applications.

Ramtron F-RAM memory technology inherently provides high endurance, fast single-cycle and symmetrical read/write speeds, low power consumption, as well as gamma radiation tolerance and electromagnetic immunity. With the recent introduction of Ultra Low Energy memory, Ramtron achieves levels of power consumption that are not possible with older, power hungry nonvolatile memory technologies, such as electrically erasable programmable read-only memory (EEPROM).
Ramtron products are available today from Digi-Key and through other authorized Ramtron distribution partners. Low Energy Memory whitepaper and datasheets are available at www.ramtron.com/go/LowEnergyMemory.
Ramtron International Corporation, headquartered in Colorado Springs, Colorado, is a fabless semiconductor company that designs, develops and markets specialized semiconductor memory and integrated semiconductor solutions used in a wide range of product applications and markets worldwide.
