Synaptic Laboratories Limited (SLL) Xccela Bus Memory Controller (XBMC) IP currently supports 6 different xSPI PSRAM from AP Memory. SLL has physically qualified the first Xccela PSRAM devices from AP Memory with XBMC IP. Free long term evaluation licenses of S/Labs XBMC IP will be available soon to all Intel customers for use on COTS and proprietary FPGA boards! Please contact S/Labs to participate in our Early Access Program to test Xccela PSRAM in your project today. -- QUALIFICATION STATUS as of June 2019. Physically validated: APS6408L‐OBx. Validated in simulator: APS3208L-OBx, APS3208L-3OBx, APS6408L-3OBx, APS6408L-3OBx, APS12808L-OBx, and APS12808L-3OB. Support planned for: APS25608A-OBx and APS51208L-OBx.
Synaptic Labs is collaborating with AP Memory to physical qualify many of AP Memory's Xccela PSRAM devices.
Supports full 200 MHz @ 1.8v and 133 MHz @ 3.0v clock speeds on Cyclone 10 GX, Arria 10, Arria 10 SoC, Stratix 10 and Stratix 10 SoC.
Automatically configures the Xccela devices at power on, PSRAM immediately available for read/write access without a customer boot loader.
Internal clock-crossing logic to reduce circuit area of customer's design.
Device Utilization and Performance
Starting from around 400 4-to-1 logic elements, SLL's XBMC is many times smaller than any DDRx SDRAM controller IP available for Intel FPGA. -- Furthermore, x8 Xccela PSRAM requires ~3x less pins than x8 DDRx, making it ideal in resource constrained designs. -- Nios II software performance on Xccela PSRAM @ 150 MHz is highly competitive with 16-bit DDR3 @ 333 MHz, and is up to around 1.5x faster than 16-bit SDR SDRAM @ 100 MHz.
