3.3.2. Dual-DIMM DDR3 Clock, Address, and Command Termination and Topology

One significant difference between DDR3 and DDR2 DIMM based interfaces is the address, command and clock signals. DDR3 uses a daisy chained based architecture when using JEDEC standard modules.

The address, command, and clock signals are routed on each module in a daisy chain and feature a fly-by termination on the module. Impedance matching is required to make the dual-DIMM topology work effectively—40 to 50-ohm traces should be targeted on the main board.
