Description: Right on the heels of DDR4, the industry's next generation of system and mobile memories will drive another paradigm shift for Silicon and system developers. DDR4 required thinking to move beyond the certainty promised by setup and hold timings and voltage margins into the new terrain of random and deterministic jitter and noise as well as bit error rates (BER) that could never be guaranteed to be zero no matter how much margin you had. This is the world of data eyes and statistics. Before DDR4 speeds can be doubled, the statistical eye that people were just getting their minds wrapped around will collapse. Opening it back up requires applying concepts first developed for high speed serial busses like PCI Express to DDR. Memory's wide, single ended, bidirectional and bursty bus stretches these concepts to their limits and beyond, requiring everyone to up their game. This session will show you how to get your game on so you can master a whole new generation of DRAM.
