What is DDR in VLSI?

What is DDR in VLSI?

Double data rate (DDR) is the advanced version of synchronous dynamic random access memory (SDRAM). SDRAM waits for clock signals before responding to control inputs. DDR uses both the falling and rising edges of the clock signal.

What is DDR protocol?

It is a memory technology based on Synchronous dynamic random access memory (SDRAM). DDR SDRAM access is twice as fast as SDRAM, because DDR data transfers occurs on both edges of the clock signal as compared to SDRAM which transfers data only on the rising edge of a clock.

What is write leveling in DDR?

Description. Write Leveling is a DDR3 SDRAM feature that is used to compensate for DQS/CK skew. DDR3 DIMM and multi-component designs must use fly-by topology routing on clocks, address, commands, and control signals. This improves SI, but causes skew between DQS and CK. Write Leveling compensates for this skew.

Is DDR and RAM the same?

Many people refer to a processor’s RAM as simply “DDR”, using the terms interchangeably because DDR is so widely used as CPU RAM and has been since the late 1990s. DDR is not flash memory like the kind that is used for Solid State Drives (SSDs), Secure Digital (SD) cards, or Universal Serial Bus (USB) drives.

What is ZQ calibration in DDR?

ZQ calibration is a process that tunes the DRAM and ESDCTL I/O pad output drivers (drive strength) and ODT values across changes in process, voltage, and temperature. There are two instances where ZQ calibration is performed: on the i. MX53 (DDR pads) and on the DDR device.

What are the four types of DDR?
