“OPENEDGES and Silvaco have evaluated each other’s DDR memory controller and DDR PHY and have demonstrated the easy integration between both IPs. The combined DDR IP solution will be a very good choice for design teams looking for maximum DRAM bandwidth in low power SoCs,” said Jeff Elias, VP and GM of Silvaco’s IP Division.

“OPENEDGES DDR3/4/LPDDR3/4/5/GDDR6 memory controller together with our NoC bus interconnect IP act as a complete memory subsystem. We have a singular focus on becoming a total memory subsystem IP vendor. We are excited to provide total memory subsystem IP solutions together with Silvaco DDR PHYs for Samsung Foundry. This partnership will provide great value for our customers’ SoCs,” said CEO of OPENEDGES, Sean Lee.

Silvaco’s DDR PHY and OPENEDGES’s DDR controller and NoC combined solutions are fully compliant to the JEDEC standard.
