Row Hammering: What it is, and how hackers could use it to gain access to your system

I have written on the topic of Row Hammering in a White Paper I published last year (link here) but since it is in the spotlight recently I thought I’d dedicate a blog entry to it. I had never considered this to be a security hole until this morning.

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.

DDR4: The first and the fastest (sort of)

Since last week’s announcement of Intel CPUs supporting DDR4, the first almost-announcement of a DDR4 machine by a major PC manufacturer that I have found is the Alienware Area-51 (Alienware is a Dell subsidiary). I say almost-announcement because at the time of writing this blog, Alienware’s website didn’t include any details of when it will be available for sale, or how much it would cost, or anything like a press release on it. The machine will be capable of running up to three 4K monitors simultaneously and support up to 32GB of DDR4 memory running DDR4-2133.

Earlier speculation was that Intel would release the DDR4-compatible products in time for the Intel Developer Forum in mid-September.
