Technology:Memory Interfaces and Controllers: SDRAM
Stratix Series: Stratix® IV
Supported Device Family:
The Microtronix HyperDrive Multi-port DDR2 Memory Controller IP Core brings FPGA based hardware DDR2 designs to a whole new level of performance. Built around a new DDR2 state machine memory controller which operates at half the DDR2 clock rate, the design optimizes the performance of both the FPGA fabric and I/O structures enabling 400 MHz DDR2 (800 Mbps) performance in a Stratix® II, III or IV device.The memory controller supports burst memory RD/WR access cycles and handles all memory tasks, including initialization and refresh cycles. The core integrates: a burst DDR2 memory controller core, a port arbitrator and an intelligent look-ahead FIFO controller into one easy-to-use core.The core supports up to ten independently clocked, full-rate streaming-data devices operating from one shared high bandwidth memory system.
DQS data capture simplifies timing closure
Configurable FIFO size optimizes streaming video applications
Reference designs are supplied to demonstrate the use of the IP Core.
