Hermann Ruckerbauer of EyeKnowHow is offering paid classroom training on designing DRAM into your system. It will be in Hamburg, Germany 8/9 November, 2012 but this special presentation will be in English not German.
For a free preview of Hermann in action please see the on-demand version of his presentation How to get the most from ADS, the Swiss army knife of high speed digital EDA tool
OPEN THE BLACK BOX OF MEMORY
What you always wanted to know about memory!
… But never had the right expert to ask!
You are developing hardware e. g. for an “Embedded Computer System”?
No matter what processor you are using, DRAM Memory is part of nearly all designs. But the functionality behind the memory is often unknown. The layout is done following the design guide. But without some background know how it is difficult to judge what impact required deviations from the design guide will have! The BIOS to access the memory is taken from the CPU vendor, without the possibility to look inside or even make adjustments. This makes troubleshooting quite difficult.
The memory interface is getting more and more a “Black Box”! With every new memory generation the margins are getting smaller and the requirements for the design are increasing. Get the know how that helps you to design successful products in the future.
