DDR4 or HBM2 High Bandwidth Memory: How to Choose Now

Web event: DDR4 or HBM2 High Bandwidth Memory: How to Choose Now
Date: September 12, 2017
Time:09:00 AM PDT
Duration: 60 minutes

High Bandwidth Memory (HBM) is now in volume production in high-end consumer graphics cards. The second version of the standard, HBM2, is set to enable the next generation of high-end graphics processors, High Performance Computing (HPC) and networking chips. While DDR4 is a fast and high capacity DRAM interface offering 200 Gbit/s per DIMM, HBM2 delivers very high memory bandwidth up to 2 Terabits/sec/die stack, with low energy per bit, and low PCB area.

This webinar focuses on the key points to consider when deciding between DDR4 and HBM2 and will explain:
  • Momentum in the market for HBM2
  • The capacity, performance, and power differences between DDR4 and HBM2
  • New requirements when using HBM2, such as system-level architecture, physical design, and test.
  • Benefits and challenges of HBM2’s 2.5D interposer technology and 3D stacking to make thousands of connections between the CPU SoC and the HBM2 device
Audience: SoC designers for server, networking, cloud computing, or high-end graphics applications
