Rambus’ mobile and server memory architectures are designed to meet the growing performance demands of future systems driven by applications such as 3D gaming, HD video streaming, capture and encoding, while providing unmatched power efficiency. With the rising popularity of streaming video, smartphones, tablets, and other smart mobile devices, there is a growing need for next-generation dynamic random access memory (DRAM) technologies capable of delivering the bandwidth necessary to power devices with the latest feature sets.
SUNNYVALE, Calif. & MILPITAS, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Rambus Inc. (RMBS) and GLOBALFOUNDRIES today announced the results from their collaboration on two separate memory architecture-based silicon test chips. The first test chip demonstrates solutions for mobile memory applications, such as smartphones and tablets. The second test chip demonstrates solutions for compute main memory applications, such as servers. Using GLOBALFOUNDRIES’ 28-nanometer super low power (28nm-SLP) process, and demonstrating the capabilities of one of the most power efficient and highest performance analog/mixed-signal offerings for advanced system-on-chip (SoC) developments, the results of the two test chips have surpassed power and performance expectations.
