Impedance Measurements Stabilize Op-Amp Buffers

October 10, 2014 -- The unity-gain op amp (operational amplifier) buffer circuit is routinely used to transform high-impedance inputs into low-impedance outputs. ADC (analog-to-digital converter) voltage references are also frequently buffered to reduce the voltage reference noise resulting from the ADC sampling current. ... read more

What the LPDDR4 Multi-Channel Architecture Can Do for You

December 2, 2014, 12:00 noon EDT -- The LPDDR4 standard was created to address the need for increased memory bandwidth in low-power, high-performance smartphones and mobile devices. LPDDR4 is designed to be a single 32-bit wide die with two independent 16-bit wide channels. This is the first traditional DDR SDRAM that defines more than one channel for the die. The LPDDR4 JEDEC standard describes a single device with two independent channels on one DRAM die. It also includes package options that include multi-die packages with four independent channels.

This webinar explores different methods of connecting the multiple channels of DRAM into the SoC, including operating all the channels independently or joining some of them together. It discusses the tradeoffs in SoC floorplans, logical to physical addressing, connecting to on-chip buses, and low-power methods as they are affected by the multi-channel connections to LPDDR4.


  • How LPDDR4 is different from previous JEDEC DRAM
  • Ways to connect two or four channels of LPDDR4
  • How to handle 2-die and 4-die packages
  • How to share channels by using SoC partitioning for LPDDR4 PoP
  • How to optimize channels for power consumption and performance

Speaker: Marc Greenberg, Director of Product Marketing for DDR Controller IP at Synopsys.

Analysis of the Pixel Resolution in Image Sensors for Digital Still Cameras

September 17, 2014 -- Recently there has been no obvious increase in the pixel numbers in the interchangeable lens DSC markets. This could be that the pixel resolution has already reached its optimum quality for practical use or customers have understood the disadvantage of high resolution. The optical specification of a DSC decides the total sensing area of an image sensor; in a case of the same image size, if the pixel number becomes larger, each pixel size becomes smaller. The performance of imaging systems must continuously improve as the FHD standard evolves to a UHD standard and new requirements for image sensor performance, coupled with pixel resolution, evolve. ... read more
