This article explains which form of DRAM memory is best for your SoC application, comparing DDR variants, types of DIMM, mobile and low-power versions, graphics memory and 3D stacks.
Mobile and networking platforms need high bandwidth, low power consumption, and small footprint. These needs drove standards, such as LPDDR4, Wide I/O 2 and Hybrid Memory Cube.
Verification IP is becoming an increasingly important component for system design due to the rapid proliferation of new protocols and interfaces, chiefly driven by mobile comms.
Lane Mason Marc Greenberg DDR3 DRAMs still languish around the edges of the market despite their supposed attraction in terms of power and performance, the widespread availability of product, and the presence of a supposedly ‘evolved’ ecosystem and implementation infrastructure. Just over 18 months ago, Intel launched a major Go To DDR3 market initiative at […]
