Rambus Low Power Double Data Rate 5 (LPDDR5) Controller Core is designed for use in applications requiring high memory throughput, high clock rates and full programmability.
The LPDDR5 controller core accepts commands using a simple local interface and translates them to the command sequences required by LPDDR5 devices. The core also performs all initialization, refresh and power-down functions.
The core uses bank management logic to monitor the status of each LPDDR bank. Banks are only opened or closed when necessary, minimizing access delays.
The core queues up multiple commands in the command queue. This enables optimal bandwidth utilization for both short transfers to highly random address locations as well as longer transfers to contiguous address space. The command queue is also used to opportunistically perform look-ahead activates, precharges and auto-precharges further improving overall throughput.
Add-On Cores such as an AXI Core Bus Interface, Multi-Port Front-End and In-Line ECC Core can be optionally delivered with the core. The core is delivered fully integrated and verified with the target LPDDR5 PHY.
