"The Storage Class Memory space has drawn multi-billion dollar investment from many industry memory vendors and continues to gain additional interest among the industry," said Mark Webb, Analyst at MKW Ventures. "We are forecasting this market with revenues over $900 million in 2019 and $5.1 billion by 2025."

JEDEC, the global leader in standards development for the microelectronics industry, published the release of DDR4 Serial Presence Detect (SPD) Specifications that supports NVDIMM-H.  NVDIMM-H is a hybrid memory module comprised of DRAM and NAND Flash that provides a block-cached, byte addressable memory resource that enhances data resilience and system performance of data center servers. NVDIMM-H has a scalable architecture that extends to DDR5 and utilizes off-the-shelf components to provide a cost-effective, high-capacity solution that can be easily adopted by data center customers.

C.K. Hong, Netlist's Chief Executive Officer said, "The publication of JEDEC standards for NVDIMM-H provides the framework for broad market adoption of hybrid modules and, in turn, Netlist's HybridDIMM™ storage class memory solution. We look forward to working with industry ecosystem partners to bring NVDIMM-H solutions to market."
