Cadence claims speed record for its DDR4 PHY IP

January 30, 2014 // By Graham Prophet
In the move from DDR3 to DDR4 for high-speed SoC designs, Cadence has achieved 2667 Mbps performance on its DDR4 PHY Intellectual Property (IP) for 28nm process technology.

Cadence positions its DDR4 PHY IP as a proven DDR PHY that has been verified with the its own DDR4 controller IP. DDR4 gains over DDR3, in greater reliability, reduced power, higher capacity, a more robust reliability, availability, and serviceability (RAS) feature, and better stacking capabilities for enterprise, micro-server, ultrathin and tablet markets.

According to 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.”
