Apple iPhone 6S: LPDDR4 arrives at Apple

As reported by Chipworks last week, the Apple iPhone 6S is using 2GB of LPDDR4 DRAM. This means that Apple is now joining other phones such as the LG Gflex2, the Samsung Galaxy S6, Xiaomi Mi Note Pro, HTC OneM9, and several others in using LPDDR4 RAM.

Zero to Green Light in minutes: Prototype your DDR Designs faster with new DDR IP Prototyping Kit

I’m thrilled to blog about our latest IP prototyping kits that allow much faster FPGA prototyping of your DDR designs. In the last few years I’ve seen our HAPS prototyping boxes at more and more of our customers, and people I’ve talked to really like the ability to do their software prototyping for their DDR IP on their desktops long before their SoCs are manufactured.

WOW That Was Fast – JEDEC Publishes the LPDDR4 Standard

JEDEC officially published the LPDDR4 standard today.  It is very impressive how quickly LPDDR4 was standardized given the comparably long time it took for DDR4 from start to publication.  That is primarily driven by the pace of the smartphone market and the need for increased memory bandwidth year over year which has far outpaced the memory bandwidth growth requirement in the “PC” SDRAM market.  The JEDEC committees responsible for this latest publication should be very proud of their achievement.  Most of the people on these committees have “regular day jobs” outside of JEDEC and the support from the various companies involved is also appreciated.
