Application Specific DRAMs

DRAMs have historically been high volume, standard, commodity memories. Today with many high volume applications having differing requirements, DRAMs are becoming more application specific. This talk discusses a variety of application specific DRAMs including: those with high speed interfaces such as the DDR and DDRII SDRAM; DRAMs with low power internal design techniques for use in battery operated systems; DRAMs with graphics enhancements such as high speed point-to-point interfaces and various internal graphics functions; DRAMs for networking such as ternary CAMs, SRAM look-alike DRAMs with pseudo-static operation for both high performance networking and battery operated asynchronous and synchronous applications; and low voltage power supply DRAMs.
