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 It superseded the original DDR SDRAM specification, and is superseded by ..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

Power savings are achieved primarily due to an improved manufacturing process through die shrinkage, resulting in a drop in operating voltage 1. Views Read Edit View history. These cards actually use standard DDR2 chips designed for use as main system memory although operating with higher latencies to achieve higher clockrates. These chips cannot achieve the clock rates of GDDR3 but are inexpensive and fast enough to be used as memory on mid-range cards.

Thus, DDR2 memory must be operated at twice the data rate to achieve the same latency. However, further confusion has been added to the mix with the appearance of budget and mid-range graphics cards which claim to use “GDDR2”. The document notes that these prefixes are used in epecification decimal sense for serial communication data rates measured in bits. The two factors combine to produce a total of four data transfers per internal clock cycle. 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 jeedec minimum delay the proper product for use by those other than JEDEC members, whether the standard is to be used either jedex or internationally.


The specification defines the two common units of information: By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. Jedeec addition to double pumping the data bus as in DDR SDRAM transferring data on the rising and falling edges uedec the bus clock signalDDR2 allows higher bus speed and requires lower power by running the internal clock at half the speed of the data bus.

The definitions of kilo, giga, and mega based on powers of two are included only to reflect common usage.

Dynamic random-access memory DRAM. In other projects Wikimedia Commons. The standards specify the physical and electrical characteristics of the modules, and include the data for computer simulations of the memory module operating in a system. This queue received or transmitted its data over the data bus in two data bus clock cycles each clock cycle specifiication two bits of data. Alternatively, DDR2 memory operating at twice the external data bus clock rate as DDR may provide twice the bandwidth with the same latency.

Archived from the original on 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.


Please update this article to reflect recent events or newly available information. This packaging change was necessary to maintain signal integrity ddr higher bus speeds. The purpose of the standard is to promote the uniform use of symbols, abbreviations, terms, and definitions throughout the semiconductor industry. At least one manufacturer has reported this reflects successful testing at a higher-than-standard data rate [4] whilst others simply round up for the name.

Retrieved August 25, From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.


These chips are mostly standard DDR chips that have been tested and rated to be capable of operation at ddt2 clock rates by the manufacturer.

Both performed worse than the original DDR specification due to specififation latency, which made total access times longer.

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. DDR2 started to become competitive against the older DDR standard by the end ofas modules with lower latencies became available. However, latency is greatly increased as a trade-off.

It had severe overheating issues due to the nominal DDR voltages.
