Lesson 1 - Introduction - DDR4 and DDR5 memory


In this course, we'll hear from industry expert Perry Keller as he provides an overview of DDR4 and what to expect with DDR5.

Faster networking speeds require faster memory. Each new version of the LPDDR / DDR standards supports faster access to data stored in memory. As the speed of double data rate technology increases, you face new design and validation challenges. Each new generation of the standard introduces new DDR physical layer test requirements. This is particularly true with DDR4 and DDR5, which each introduce new receiver compliance tests that were not required with previous generations of the standard. Learn why these new tests are required and how they will continue to evolve with future standards.

Who should take Understanding DDR4 and DDR5?

This course is designed for anyone with an interest in DDR or LPDDR memory standards. Whether you design DDR memory devices or are end-user of memory technology, this course is for you. You will gain insight into not only where DDR memory standards are today, but where they are going in the future.

We'll cover:

  • Evolution of DDR Signaling
  • Eye Diagrams & Signal Relationships
  • New Requirements for DDR4
  • DDR5 Measurement Science
  • Holistic Approach to DDR Testing
