Rambus Inc. today announced the tapeout of its GDDR6 PHY on TSMC 7nm FinFET process technology and is available from Rambus for licensing today.
The Rambus GDDR6 PHY is fully compliant to the JEDEC GDDR6 (JESD250) standard, supporting up to 16 Gbps per pin. The GDDR6 interface supports 2 channels, each with 16 bits for a total data width of 32 bits. With Speeds up to 16 Gbps per pin the Rambus GDDR6 PHY will offer a maximum bandwidth of up to 64 GB/s.
Rambus promotes the GDDR6 as an alternative memory choice that is five times faster than traditional memory available today. It could be used to a broad range of high-performance applications including networking, data center, advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI).
GDDR6 is available from Rambus today for licensing and integrating into system-on-chips (SoCs).
