Greater reliability and improved stacking capabilities
Cadence Design Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CDNS), a leader in global electronic design innovation, today announced that it has achieved 2667 Mbps performance on its DDR4 PHY Intellectual Property (IP) at 28nm, the highest known performance in the industry. Targeting server, networking and consumer applications, the Cadence® DDR4 PHY IP is a silicon-proven, robust and low-risk DDR PHY that has been verified with the Cadence DDR4 controller IP. DDR4 PHY IP has several significant advantages over DDR3, including greater reliability, reduced power, higher capacity, a more robust RAS (reliability, availability, and serviceability) feature, and better stacking capabilities for enterprise, micro-server, ultrathin and tablet markets.
“As DDR4 high-speed memories now become readily available, designers are looking for IP that can support 2667 Mbps,” said Amjad Qureshi, senior group director, Cadence IP Group. “By providing both the DDR4 controller and the DDR4 PHY at such high speeds, Cadence gives designers the confidence and assurance that they can build next-generation systems which are faster, lower power and have more capacity.”
