Does this apply to DDR3 as well? Can't really tell from the release. It would help if they listed some of the parameters they 'fine tune'. Good luck on hearing back from the FPGA guys. I'm sure their legal dept is now in the loop....

Xilinx supports self calibration for their memory controller IPs. Maybe other vendors support too.

Hi there -- I pinged folks I know at all of the FPGA companies and asked them to pass a link to my article to their techno-weenie folks -- I've not heard anything back yet -- I'm not sure if this could be implemented in the FPGA as purely soft digital fabric controlling the analog PHY, or if the FPGA company would have to do stuff to the physical chip...

In a moment I'm going to ping the folks at the various FPGA companies to see if they've heard about (or are already using) this technology...

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
