HBM Controller Core has been Hardware Validated
Northwest Logic’s HBM Controller Core has now been hardware validated using a platform from eSilicon which consists of a Xilinx Virtex-7, SK Hynix Gen1 HBM Device and an organic interposer. This platform performs error-free, high-performance transfers between the controller and the HBM. The HBM Controller Core supports all HBM Gen2 features including Pseudo Channel, Per Bank Refresh, etc. It also includes several interface options to enable a broad range of system applications. The controller is fully released and available. Click here for more information on SK Hynix’s HBM devices. Click here for more information on eSilicon’s HBM support.

Northwest Logic CSI-2 Controller Cores Validated on Arrow MAX10 DECA Board
The Northwest Logic CSI-2 Rx Controller Core and CSI-2 Tx Controller Core have been fully validated on the Arrow DECA Development Kit. This kit uses Altera’s low-cost, low-power Max 10 device with a low-cost, passive D-PHY approach. The combination of the Max10 and passive D-PHY approach provides a very cost effective, small footprint CSI-2 Tx or Rx solution. Click here for more information on the DECA Development Kit.
