How are the Intel® Stratix® 10 DDR4 IP chip select signals mapped for the top and bottom memory devices in a clamshell topology?

Description

When clamshell topology is enabled in the Intel® Stratix® 10 DDR4 IP Parameter Editor, each rank requires two CS pins to configure the top and bottom memory chips separately. The following content  shows how to map the CS pins from FPGA to memory chips in single rank and dual ranks designs.

 

For single-rank components:

The Top (non-mirrored) components, FPGA_CS0 goes to MEM_TOP_CS0

The bottom (mirrored) components, FPGA_CS1 goes to MEM_BOT_CS0

 

For Dual-Rank components:

The Top (non-mirrored) components, FPGA_CS0 goes to MEM_TOP_CS0 and FPGA_CS1 goes to MEM_TOP_CS1

The bottom (mirrored) components, FPGA_CS2 goes to MEM_BOT_CS0 and FPGA_CS3 goes to MEM_BOT_CS1
