Rambus is a semiconductor and IP products developing company which announced its expanded partnership with Microsoft Research yesterday to develop a system that improves memory performance in cryogenic temperatures.

Both the companies will be working to enhance memory capabilities, reduce energy consumption to enable high speed SerDes links to operate efficiently in cryogenic and superconducting domains.

The systems developed by the companies will improve the energy efficiency for DRAM and logic operation at cryogenic temperatures (below 180 °C). Rambus Labs says that the cryogenic temperatures are ideal for high performance super computers and quantum computers.

Dr.Gary Bronner, Vice President of Rambus Labs explained that the partnership with Microsoft has enabled both the companies to identify new architectural models to develop systems utilizing cryogenic memory.
