Cadence DDR4 IP Solution

Cadence Design Systems introduced a new DDR4 IP solution, which consists of hard and soft PHY IP, controller IP, memory models, verification IP, tools and methodologies, and signal integrity reference designs for the package and board. The Cadence DDR4 IP solution speeds integration, reduces cost and ensures design manufacturability. DDR4 controller IP, verification IP and memory models are available now. The DDR4 specification features speeds ranging from 1600 mega transfers per second (MT/s) up to 3200 MT/s (over 50% faster than the current DDR3 standard).

Cadence DDR4 IP Solution Highlights
