MOSAID, Semico and Fidus Announce SoC Design Forum

OTTAWA, Feb. 5 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - MOSAID Technologies Incorporated , today announced that Semico Research Inc., Fidus Systems Inc. and MOSAID are hosting technical seminars on integrating today's DDR2 SDRAMs into SoC applications, and the future for DDR3 memories. Titled "SoC Forum - Designing for DDR SDRAMs and the Outlook for DDR3", the free, half-day seminars will be held worldwide in February and March, 2007.

SoC designs increasingly rely on DDR as an interface to an external memory. While DDR2 SDRAM offers security of supply, high storage capacity, low cost, and ample channel bandwidth, it is an awkward interface at both the logical and physical levels, resulting in complicated controller issues. Designers will learn about effectively interfacing SoC designs to off-chip DDR SDRAM memories.

"SoC designers often face a daunting task when incorporating a modern DRAM interface into their design," said Michael Kaskowitz, Senior Vice President, Semiconductor IP, MOSAID. "Our technical seminar addresses this by examining the entire process of designing SoCs with DRAM interfaces, from inception through completed PCBs."

Presenting will be Michael Wakim, President and CEO, Fidus; Bob Merritt, Vice President, DRAM, Semico; Peter Gillingham, Vice President and CTO, MOSAID, and Graham Allan, Director of Marketing, Semiconductor IP, MOSAID. Topics include: DDR memory as a key enabler for next- generation consumer electronics ICs; high-performance DDR memory controller issues; successfully integrating DDR SDRAMs into PCB's; and an overview of the DDR SDRAM roadmap, looking to DDR3.
