Rambus to License XDR Technology to IBM

Rambus Inc. has given IBM a license to use its XDR memory controller interface cell, dubbed XIO.

This agreement enables IBM to provide an advanced, high-speed design for high-performance consumer applications utilizing its 90-nm ASIC process.

The XIO cell from Rambus is a high-performance, low-latency controller interface to XDR DRAM memory sub-systems. The CMOS macro cell can be seamlessly integrated into a wide variety of target processes. It provides a wide, on-chip, CMOS-level signaling interface to the memory controller logic and a narrow, high-speed Differential Rambus Signaling Level (DRSL) interface to the external XDR memory system.

"Rambus has a long history of designing and delivering very high speed, advanced interface designs that have been broadly used in the industry," said Tom Reeves, vice president of IBM's Semiconductor Products and Solutions, in a statement. "We have worked with them on several projects and are pleased to build upon our existing relationship with this new agreement."
