Rambus today announced that Toshiba has signed a license agreement for the Rambus XDR memory controller interface cell, dubbed XIO, and the Rambus PCI Express Gen 1 PHY cell.
The Rambus interface solutions will be implemented in Toshiba?s 65nm process technology for integration into the latest consumer, computing, and communications applications.
"Rambus? renowned expertise in high-speed interfaces made their solutions an ideal choice for our state-of-art large scale integration (LSI) devices with high processing power for various applications," said Tomotaka Saito, General Manager of the Broadband System LSI Division at Toshiba's Semiconductor Company.
The Rambus XIO memory controller is the high-performance, low-latency interface to Rambus? XDR DRAM. Ideal for graphics-intensive applications in consumer electronics and computing, a single, 2-byte wide, 3.2 GHz XDR DRAM component provides 6.4 GB/sec of peak bandwidth.
The Rambus PCI Express PHY is one of the most widely compliance and interoperability tested PCI Express solution available today. Rambus? silicon-proven PCI Express PHY cells are complete serial communication cells optimized for implementing the physical layer of the PCI Express standard. Rambus? PCI Express PHY cells are in production in high-volume applications and have been incorporated in numerous products listed on the PCI-SIG Integrators List, having passed PCI-SIG compliance and interoperability testing by Rambus PHY cell customers and digital controller partners. The Rambus PCI Express interface solution consists of PHY cells and digital controllers.
