Register for Nine Dot Connects' 1/31 Webinar: Double Data Rate Memory (DDR3)


Reading time ( words)

There’s a lot of talk about the 3rd generation of Double Data Rate memory known as DDR3. We at Nine Dot Connects have laid out several DDR3 boards in the past three months. There is quite a bit of detail to know about DDR3 design and layout and unfortunately, there is also a lot of misinformation out there. We have waded though and analyzed the literature. We wish to share our findings and understanding with you in our latest webinar series, Double Data Rate (DDR3) Shouldn't be Double Trouble.

In our two-part series on this topic, we will first cover key concepts necessary for proper signal integrity and general DDR3 design.  Topics to be covered this month are:

  • Brief history of the DDR concept
  • Comparison between the different generations of DDR
  • The signaling and timing requirements for DDR3       
  • Understanding match length versus match delay
  • Compensating for typical routing delay
  • Using the iCD Stackup Planner to assist in delay matching calculation

In part 2, we will build upon this foundation by demonstrating the practical aspects of DDR3 layout techniques.

This latest webinar, Double Data Rate (DDR3) Shouldn't be Double Trouble, is scheduled for January 31, 2018 at 2 pm Eastern Time. For more information and to register, click HERE.

With the launch of the new Flex007 section in Design007 Magazine, we asked David Wiens, product marketing manager with Mentor, a Siemens Business, to tell us about their tools’ flex and rigid-flex design capabilities. As David explains, today’s higher-end design software tools are optimized for flex design, making workarounds a thing of the past.

PCB Reliability: Via Design

07/12/2019 | Greg Ziraldo, Advanced Assembly
When considering the long-term reliability of a PCB, you must take into account any vias on your board. While an invaluable and essential part of board design, vias introduce weaknesses and affect solderability. This article will discuss vias, the potential concerns that are introduced into your board through their implementation, and how to minimize those concerns to acceptable levels.
