DesignWare DDR IP Solutions

DesignWare DDR IP Solutions

Overview

Synopsys offers a complete system-level memory interface IP portfolio for SoCs requiring an interface to one or a range of high-performance DDR5, DDR4, DDR3/3L, DDR2, LPDDR5X/5, LPDDR4/4X, LPDDR3, LPDDR2, HBM3, HBM2E and HBM2 SDRAMs or memory modules (DIMMs). Optimized for high data bandwidth, low power and enhanced signaling features, the silicon-proven DesignWare DDR Memory Interface IP portfolio includes a choice of scalable digital controllers, an integrated hard macro or configurable PHY delivering memory system performance of up to 8.5Gbps, and verification IP.

Synopsys' DDR and LPDDR PHYs are supportd by Synopsys' unique DesignWare DDR PHY Compiler for determining the area and power of a customer-specific configuration.

Synopsys' DesignWare DDR5/4, LPDDR5X/5/4/4X Controllers, and Enhanced Universal DDR Memory and Protocol Controller IP feature a DFI-compliant interface, low latency and low gate count while offering high bandwidth. Optional market-specific features like AMBA CHI, AXI/4 AXI Quality of Service (QoS) and advanced Reliability, Availability and Serviceability (RAS) features allow you to match the area and capabilities of the controllers to your needs.
