TI Announces World's First DDR-II PLL Supporting 800MB/s for Registered Memory Modules

Low Power, Low Jitter Provides Wider Timing Margins for PC, Server, Workstation and Communications Applications

Jul 16, 2003

DALLAS (July 16, 2003) - Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) [NYSE: TXN] announced today the industry´s first Double Data Rate-II (DDR-II) Phase Locked Loop (PLL) for registered memory modules that supports data rates up to 800MB/s. Supporting the industry´s highest frequency, the high-performance, low-skew, low-jitter, zero-delay buffer gives designers wider timing margins necessary in designing high speed DDR Memory Modules found in applications such as PCs, servers, workstations and communications.

High Performance and Ease of Design

The CDCU877 DDR-II PLL is fully compliant with the JEDEC DDR-II standard and distributes a differential-clock input pair to 10 differential pairs of clock outputs and one differential pair feedback-clock output differential pair. Combined with the SN74SSTU32864 DDR-II logic register, this device provides a total chipset solution and facilitates easier part sourcing for DDR-II memory modules. 


The

SN74SSTU32864

can be configured as a 25-bit 1:1 pinout configuration or a 14-bit 1:2 pinout, allowing users to work with a single part number for multiple DIMM configurations. Output Edge-Control Circuitry is utilized in the device to minimize switching noise in un-terminated lines, improving signal integrity. The device also supports the DDR-II low power, minimizing switching noise into the SDRAM inputs on the DIMM, improving signal integrity and lowering system power consumption.


Pricing and Availability

The CDCU877 is available today and comes in a 52-ball MicroStar JuniorTM BGA and 40-pin MLF package. Planned pricing for the CDCU877 is $3.50 per device in quantities of 1,000.
