SLDRAM is an enhanced line extension of SDRAM architecture that extends the current four-bank design to 16 banks.
Only companies that make major investments now in new equipment, technology, and personnel will be able to effectively provide virtual warehousing of SDRAMs, DDR, SLDRAM, and RDRAM memory modules as they emerge between now and the year 2000.
The demonstration features Toshiba's Direct Rambus(TM) devices to showcase ARIES' capabilities for engineering and production test of high-speed Direct Rambus DRAMs and SLDRAMs
Farris said that ARIES has also been chosen by the SLDRAM
consortium as its reference standard test system.
Since there is no die size penalty, a memory system built with SLDRAM chips offers the best hope of achieving the goal of high data-transfer rates at a reasonable cost," says Mr.
A major feature of MOSAID's SLDRAM design is an "adaptive interface" that automatically adjusts the times at which data is sent to meet the demands of systems that require levels of accuracy measured in split billionths of a second.
9 million, calls for MOSAID to create a reference design for a 400 megabit per second, per pin, 64 megabit SLDRAM prototype.
MOSAID has assigned all new intellectual property created in the course of developing the prototype to SLDRAM Inc.
The Consortium continues making consistent progress toward demonstrating high performance, open-standard SLDRAM," said Farhad Tabrizi, chairman of the SLDRAM Consortium.
The SLDRAM specification is available now through the Consortium's Web site: www.
MOSAID will assign to the SLDRAM Consortium all new Intellectual Property created in the course of developing the prototype.
The mission of the SLDRAM Consortium is to define the next-generation, high-performance, scaleable, open-standard memory architecture.
