Rambus Ships Over 100 Million XDR DRAM Modules
We aren't mathematicians by trade, but 100 million sure isn't anything to scoff at. The company's obviously not satisfied with such a figure, however, as just recently we learned that it was toiling away in an attempt to move DDR3 RAM beyond the 3200Mbps threshold. While you sit back and offer a round of congratulations to Rambus, here's a few pointers on what has kept the stuff so darn popular:
- XDR DRAM is a high-performance memory that turbo-charges standard CMOS DRAM cores with a high-speed interface capable of 7.2Gbps data rates providing up to 28.8GB/s of bandwidth with a single DRAM device.
- XIO controller IO cell provides the same high-speed signaling capability found on the DRAM, but adds additional enhancements like FlexPhase™ technology that eliminates the need for trace length matching.
- XMC memory controller is a fully synthesizable logical memory controller that is optimized to take advantage of innovations like Dynamic Point-to-Point which provides for capacity expansion while delivering the signal integrity benefits of point-to-point signaling.
- XCG clock generator provides the system clocks with four programmable outputs and is guaranteed to meet the clocking requirements for the XIO and XDR DRAM devices.
