Memory Interface


As a result, memory-intensive systems like servers,workstations, and equipment for networking, telecom, and industrial applications have been able to offer increasing levels of bandwidth. Memory-support logic can be used to enhance bandwidth by addressing timing issues like jitter, propagation delay/skew and signal buffering/drive. Using the right registers and PLLs can improve timing further, and in some cases can even extend a memory technology beyond its original speed target.
