The Iris Pro graphics 5200 is similar to the Iris 5100 except for the fact that it includes a 128 MB eDRAM
to the CPU package to improve performance.
Interconnects that connect these devices are formed on top of the eDRAM
The memory devices feature: higher capacities and speeds as well as reduced power consumption achieved through Renesas Electronics' 40nm embedded DRAM (eDRAM
) technology; high-speed interface with high reliability; and package that features the same structure and similar size as the existing product.
The mainframe processor makes use of IBM's patented embedded DRAM (eDRAM
) technology, which allows IBM to place dense DRAM caches, or components, on the same chips as high-speed microprocessors, resulting in improved performance.
With four R&D centers in China (Shanghai & Beijing) and US (Santa Clara & Dallas), VeriSilicon's technology solutions combine licensable digital signal processing (ZSP(R)) cores, eDRAM
, value-added mixed signal IP portfolio and other star IP into a SoC platform that extends below 65nm process technology.
The 500 MHz embedded DRAM core, licensed from TSMC, is the third generation of eDRAM
IP available from LSI.
This device contains two complete PowerPC(r) 440 subsystems, each including 4MB on-chip eDRAM
to maximize security.
