Demystifying DDR4 SDRAM for Embedded Applications
JEDEC took seven years to develop the recently published DDR4 standard. DDR4 is significantly different from DDR3 and represents the most complex DRAM transition since asynchronous DRAMs made way for the original SDRAM back in the mid-1990s. SoC designers need to learn about the subtleties of DDR4 SDRAM to ensure that their designs fully benefit from DDR4 SDRAM standard's lower system power and higher overall bandwidth.
This webinar will outline and discuss the major features of the DDR4 SDRAM as they apply to embedded applications and areas that SoC designers need to give special attention to design their systems to take advantage of DDR4's potential.
What attendees will learn:
- The major features of DDR4 compared to DDR3
- Why the JEDEC standard includes each of the DDR4 features
- Areas to focus on for the SoC DDR4 memory controller and PHY to maximize DDR4 performance
- Recommendations for successfully implementing DDR4 interfaces
Estimated Length: 50 minutes, 10 minutes Q&A
Who should attend:
This webinar is targeted at system architects, mobile device and consumer electronics product managers and designers, design engineers, SoC architects, and project managers.
