Advancing Memory Interface Performance through Concurrent Engineering
Presenter: Dr. Chuck Yuan, Director of Engineering, Rambus Inc.
During the session, Dr. Yuan will discuss the trend of memory data rates rising beyond 1 gigabit per second (Gbps), which dramatically increases the level of interface design complexity. To meet the performance needs and cost constraints of next-generation electronic systems, a broad set of design considerations, including silicon, package, and PCB design, must be simultaneously optimized. The session will address the concurrent engineering approach adopted at Rambus to optimize the PHY together with the system to achieve breakthrough performance at reduced cost in industry standard and advanced high-performance memories.
Terabyte Bandwidth Initiative
The latest technology advancements of Rambus’ Terabyte Bandwidth Initiative enable unmatched power efficiency and compatibility to single-ended memory architectures, including GDDR5 and DDR3. With the addition of FlexMode™ interface technology, a multi-modal, SoC memory interface PHY, supporting both differential and single-ended signaling, can be implemented in a single SoC package design with no additional pins. This demo will showcase how Rambus’ Terabyte Bandwidth Initiative has achieved a power efficiency of 6 milliwatts per gigabit per second (mW/Gbps) when operating at 20Gbps in a 40nm-process silicon test vehicle.
DDR3 PHY Development Package
This high-performance, low-cost DDR3 memory controller interface solution is tailored for consumer electronics. The solution is the first to demonstrate operation in working silicon at a data rate of 1866 megatransfers per second (MT/s) in a low-cost wire bond package.
Mobile XDR™ Memory Architecture
Mobile XDR memory is the fastest and most power-efficient memory for mobile applications. Capable of achieving data rates of 3.2 to 4.3Gbps at an unprecedented power efficiency of 2.2mW/Gbps, Mobile XDR memory is ideal for next-generation smartphones, netbooks, mobile gaming and mobile multimedia products.
