Founded in 2000 and headquartered in Irvine, California, Netlist is the leading provider of high-performance modular memory subsystems to the world’s premier OEMs. Netlist specializes in bridging the widening gap between the system OEM's requirements and the capabilities of the IC manufacturer. Our patented memory subsystem technologies overcome density, performance, and cost limitations, effectively blending commodity components with their inherent deficiencies into highly reliable, optimized memory solutions. Netlist pioneered ideas such as embedding passives into printed circuit boards to free up board real estate, doubling densities via 4-rank double data rate (DDR) technology, and other off-chip technology advances that result in improved performance and lower costs compared to conventional memory. With state-of-the-art design, ISO- and OSHAS-certified manufacturing and testing facilities in the U.S., and qualified contract manufacturers in China, Netlist produces more than one million memory subsystem modules annually. Netlist’s strategy is to marry its unique board-level expertise with a thorough understanding of semiconductor building blocks and system-level applications to deliver performance, cost, and time-to-market advantages to OEMs.
