It is fully compliant to the JEDEC PC100/133 standards. The DSDRAM can operate with any SDRAM memory device, in terms of size and required timing parameters. All access timing parameters, such as CAS latency, refresh interval, etc., are programmable, to support different speed grades of SDRAM devices and different operating frequencies. The timing parameters can be set to proper default values during synthesis time. It is very small, efficient, static, fully synchronous design, with no internal tri-state buffers and signals. Source code: 1, 2, and 3 ● Programmable access timing parameters ● Supports multiple external SDRAM banks ● Automatic refresh generation with program- mable refresh intervals ● Self-refreshing mode ● Fully synthesizable, static design with no inter- nal tri-states UNITS SUMMARY Processor Interface - manages communication between processor and internal SDRAM controller module. Control commands are issued to SDRAM interface, based on state of read/write and chip select signals. SDRAM Interface - unit translating internal states of SDRAM controller to SDRAM chip signal formats. It manages data flow between Processor Interface and SDRAM chip SDRAM Controller - main unit, responsible for proper control of SDRAM chip. It issues automatically refreshing commands, to preserve valid data inside SDRAM chip. It also issues NOP, LOAD MODE REGISTER, READ, WRITE, (AUTO) PRECHARGE, ACTIVE commands. 1 Copyright © 1999-2016 DCD – Digital Core Design. All Rights Reserved.
