FPGA-based Support for Quad Data Rate Memory Devices
Tue, 01/22/2008 - 11:28am
Lattice Semiconductor Corporation announces FPGA-based support for Quad Data Rate (QDR) II/II+ memory devices. The LatticeSC and LatticeSCM FPGA families now support QDRII/II+ rates up to 750 Mb/s. The high-speed QDR II and QDR II+ memory controller IP (intellectual property) is implemented in the company’s low-power Masked Array for Cost Optimization (MACO) structured ASIC technology. These new SRAMs are appropriate for high-bandwidth, low latency applications. The read and write ports run independently and allow designers to maximize bandwidth without having to worry about the bus contention issues that are typical with other memory devices.
