The LPDDR3 DRAM brings next-generation, low-power DRAM performance to the market today. The Rambus enhanced LPDDR3 DRAM is a natural extension to the low power family of DRAM. The LPDDR3 DRAM is optimized for mobile applications and is fully-compliant with industry LPDDR3e/ LPDDR3 specifications. When paired with an R+ LPDDR3 PHY, the DRAM supports data rates of up to 2133 Mbps, while providing an active power reduction of up to 30% when compared to a standards-only LPDDR3 device at equivalent speed.
The improvement in power consumption is due in part to the use of Low Voltage Swing Terminated Logic (LVSTL) signaling technology that features a significantly reduced signal swing versus the 1.2 volt HSUL (High Speed Unterminated Logic) signal swing of LPDDR3. By supporting both signaling types, the LPDDR3 DRAM offers an enhanced performance, low-power mode while maintaining compliance with LPDDR3e and LPDDR3 standards and specifications.
