January JEDEC. STANDARD. DDR2 SDRAM SPECIFICATION be addressed to JEDEC Solid State Technology Association, Wilson Boulevard. DDR2 SDRAM is a double data rate synchronous dynamic random-access memory interface. It superseded the original DDR SDRAM specification, and is superseded by .. JEDEC standard: DDR2 SDRAM Specification: JESDF, November ** ยท JEDEC. The JEDEC memory standards are the specifications for semiconductor memory circuits and Memory modules of the DDR2-SDRAM type are available for laptop, desktop, and server computers in a wide selection of capacities and access.

Please update this article to reflect recent events or newly available information. The specification notes that these prefixes are included in the document only to reflect common usage. The drr2 contains definitions of the commonly used prefixes kilomegaand giga usually combined with the units byte and bit to designate multiples of the units.

These chips cannot achieve the clock rates of GDDR3 but are inexpensive and fast enough to be used as memory on mid-range cards. The standards specify memory module label formats for end-user markets. Archived from the original on However, further confusion has been added to the mix with the appearance of budget and mid-range graphics cards which claim to use “GDDR2”.

DDR2 was introduced in the second quarter of at two initial clock rates: Psecification, DDR2 memory operating at twice the external data bus clock rate as DDR may provide twice the bandwidth with the same latency.

The standards specify the physical and electrical characteristics of the modules, and include the data for computer simulations of the memory module operating in a system. DIMMs are identified by their peak transfer capacity often called bandwidth.

This page was last edited on 11 Januaryat An alternative system is found in Amendment 2 to IEC This committee consists of members from manufacturers of microprocessors, memory ICs, memory modules, and other components, as well as component integrators, such as video card and personal computer makers.

These cards actually use standard DDR2 chips designed for use as main system memory although operating with higher latencies to achieve higher clockrates. The definitions of kilo, giga, and mega based on edr2 of two are included only to reflect common usage. DDR2’s bus frequency is boosted by electrical interface improvements, on-die terminationprefetch buffers and off-chip drivers.

The purpose of the standard is to promote the uniform use of symbols, abbreviations, terms, and definitions throughout the semiconductor industry. This packaging change was necessary to maintain signal integrity at higher bus speeds.

DDR2 SDRAM – Wikipedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. The document notes that these prefixes are used in speckfication decimal sense for serial communication data rates measured in bits. This queue received or transmitted its data over the data bus in two data bus clock cycles each clock cycle transferred two bits of data.


The specification defines the two specifcation units of information: This is because DDR2 memory modules transfer data on a bus that is 64 data bits wide, and since a byte comprises 8 bits, this equates to 8 bytes of data per transfer. In other projects Wikimedia Commons.

However, latency is greatly increased as a trade-off. Views Read Edit View history.

During an access, four bits were read or written to or from a four-bit-deep prefetch queue. JEDEC standards and publications are designed to serve the public interest through eliminating misunderstandings between manufacturers and purchasers, facilitating interchangeability and improvement of products, and assisting the purchaser specificatioh selecting and obtaining with minimum delay the proper product for use by those other than JEDEC members, whether the standard is to be used either domestically or internationally.

The documentation of modern memory modules, such as the standards for the memory ICs [4] and a reference design of the module [5] requires over one hundred pages.

DDR2 started to become competitive against the older DDR standard by the end ofas modules with lower latencies became available.
