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....

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...

To say that Andy Weir's The Martian is an exploration of math, Mars, and feces is a slight simplification. I doubt that the author would have any complaints, though.
