Price parity evades DDR market Blog 11/28/2001 Post a comment Boise, Idaho -- It turns out that Micron Technology's vow to sell DDR modules at parity with single data rate SDRAM DIMMS was a "campaign promise."
When double data rate chips suddenly became scarce and DDR started selling at a nice premium over SDRAM, guess who is no longer selling at parity?
Processor makers need to climb off the speed bandwagon Blog 11/14/2001 Post a comment Forget it, Intel. The processor clock speed race is over, killed by its own success.
ITEM: The faster the processor runs, the more circuitry is needed to control the chip at fantastic speeds. That additional overhead cuts into the processing power, according to the October issue of MIT's Technology Review Magazine.
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
