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 It superseded the original DDR SDRAM specification, and is superseded by ..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.

However, further confusion has been added to the mix with the appearance of budget and mid-range graphics cards which claim to use “GDDR2”. Please update this jexec to reflect recent events or newly available information.

However, latency is speccification increased as a trade-off. 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.

The specification notes that these prefixes are included in the document only to reflect common usage. This article needs to be updated. DDR2’s bus frequency is boosted by electrical interface improvements, on-die terminationprefetch buffers and off-chip drivers. By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy.

Such chips draw significantly more power than slower-clocked chips, but usually offered little or no improvement in real-world performance. Dynamic random-access memory DRAM. The specification contains definitions of the commonly used prefixes kilomegaand jeeec usually combined with the units byte and bit to designate multiples of the units.

It had severe overheating issues due to the nominal DDR voltages. The standards specify memory module label formats for end-user markets.


From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Views Read Edit View history. DDR2 was introduced in the second quarter of at two initial clock rates: Retrieved from ” https: DIMMs are identified by their peak transfer capacity often called bandwidth.

DDR2 SDRAM – Wikipedia

The document notes that these prefixes are used in their decimal sense for serial communication data rates measured in bits. The document further refers specificstion the description of the IEC binary prefixes in Amendment 2 of IEC”Letter symbols to be used in electrical technology”for an alternate system of prefixes [notes 1] and includes a table of the IEC prefixes in the note.

Alternatively, DDR2 memory operating at twice the external data bus clock rate as DDR may provide twice the bandwidth with the same latency. During an access, four bits were read or written to or from a four-bit-deep prefetch queue.

Bandwidth is calculated by taking transfers per second and multiplying by eight. Wikipedia articles in need of updating from January All Wikipedia articles in need of updating. These chips cannot achieve the clock rates of Specificatiom but are inexpensive and fast enough to be used as memory on mid-range cards.

Power savings are achieved primarily due to an improved manufacturing process through die shrinkage, resulting in a drop in operating voltage 1. 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.


Retrieved from ” https: Thus, DDR2 memory must be operated at twice the data rate to achieve the same latency. Both performed worse than the original DDR specification due to higher latency, which made total access times longer.

These chips are mostly standard DDR chips that have been tested and rated to be capable of operation at higher clock rates by the manufacturer.

The two factors combine to produce a specifiation of four data transfers per internal clock cycle.

Views Read Edit View history. 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. Retrieved August 25, 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. 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 in selecting and obtaining with minimum delay the proper product for use by those other than Spscification members, whether the standard is to be used either domestically or internationally.


From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. The standards specify the physical specifixation electrical characteristics of the modules, and include the data for computer simulations of the memory module operating in a system. Archived from the original on In addition to double pumping the data bus as in DDR SDRAM transferring data on the rising and falling edges of the bus clock signalJedrc allows higher bus speed and requires lower power by running the internal clock at half the speed of the data bus.

This page was last edited on 11 Januaryat The definitions of kilo, giga, and mega based on powers of two are included only to reflect common usage. This page was last edited on 2 Vdr2at The lower memory clock frequency may also enable dde2 reductions in applications that do not require the highest available data rates. In other projects Wikimedia Commons. DDR2 started to become competitive against the older DDR standard by the end ofas modules with lower latencies became available.

An alternative system is found in Amendment 2 to IEC The specification defines the two common units of information: This packaging change was necessary to maintain signal integrity at higher bus speeds.
