January JEDEC. STANDARD. DDR2 SDRAM SPECIFICATION be addressed to JEDEC Solid State Technology Association, Wilson Boulevard. DDR2 SDRAM is a double data rate synchronous dynamic random-access memory interface. It superseded the original DDR SDRAM specification, and is superseded by .. JEDEC standard: DDR2 SDRAM Specification: JESDF, November ** ยท JEDEC. The JEDEC memory standards are the specifications for semiconductor memory circuits and Memory modules of the DDR2-SDRAM type are available for laptop, desktop, and server computers in a wide selection of capacities and access.

This queue received or transmitted its data over the data bus in two data bus clock cycles each clock cycle transferred two bits of data.

The documentation of modern memory modules, such as the standards for the memory ICs [4] and a reference design of the module [5] requires over one hundred pages. It had severe overheating issues due to the nominal DDR voltages.

These chips cannot achieve the clock rates of GDDR3 but are inexpensive and fast enough to be used as memory on mid-range cards. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. These chips are mostly standard DDR chips that have been tested and rated to be capable of operation at higher clock rates by the manufacturer. The purpose of the standard is to promote the uniform use of symbols, abbreviations, terms, and definitions throughout the semiconductor industry.

This is because DDR2 memory modules transfer data on a bus that is 64 data bits wide, and since a byte comprises 8 bits, this equates to 8 bytes of data per transfer. Views Read Edit View history.


DIMMs are identified by their peak transfer capacity often called bandwidth. JEDEC standards and publications are designed to serve the public interest through eliminating misunderstandings between manufacturers and purchasers, facilitating interchangeability and improvement of products, and assisting the purchaser in selecting and obtaining with minimum delay the proper product for use by those other than JEDEC members, whether the standard is to be used speicfication domestically or internationally.

DDR2 started to become competitive against the older DDR standard by the end specificwtionas modules with lower latencies became available.

The document notes that these prefixes are used in their decimal sense for serial communication data rates measured in bits. The standards specify the physical and electrical characteristics of the modules, and include the data for computer simulations of the memory module operating in a system. However, further confusion has been added to the mix with the appearance of budget and mid-range graphics cards which claim to use “GDDR2”.

The standards specify memory module label formats for end-user markets. These cards actually use standard DDR2 chips designed for use as main system memory although operating with higher latencies to achieve higher clockrates.

Power savings are achieved primarily due to an improved manufacturing process through die shrinkage, resulting in a drop in operating voltage 1.

The document further refers to the description of the IEC binary prefixes in Amendment 2 of IEC”Letter symbols to be used in electrical technology”for an alternate system of prefixes [notes 1] and includes a table of the IEC prefixes in the note. The lower memory clock frequency may also enable power reductions in applications that do not require the highest available data rates. Alternatively, DDR2 memory operating at twice the external data bus clock rate as DDR may provide twice the bandwidth with the same latency.

The two factors combine to produce a total of four data transfers per internal clock cycle. DDR2’s bus frequency is boosted by electrical interface improvements, on-die terminationprefetch buffers and off-chip drivers. In addition to double pumping the data bus as in DDR SDRAM transferring data on the rising and falling edges of the bus clock signalDDR2 allows higher bus speed and requires lower power by running the internal clock at half the speed of the data bus.
