Introduction to Memory Interfaces IP in Intel® FPGA Devices (OMEM1121)

44 Minutes Online Course

Course Description

This training is part 1 of 4. Intel® Stratix® 10, Arria® 10, and Cyclone® 10 devices introduce a brand new, higher performance architecture for implementing external memory interfaces, including DDR4 running at up to 2.666 Gbps on some devices. This first part of the training introduces the memory options available and describes how the architecture makes such performance possible. It also describes the unique features of the built-in hard memory controller needed to achieve such speeds.
