Rambus Presentations:

Tuesday, January 29, 2013

Title: A Reusable Generic Platform for Validation and Characterization of
High-Speed Mixed Signal Designs

8:30 a.m. – 9:10 a.m. – Ballroom D

Sanku Mukherjee, Narayanan Mayandi, Brian Tsang, Sreeja Menon, Norman Chan and
Arul Sendhil, Rambus Inc.

Rambus scientists and engineers will share innovations around a reusable test
chip architecture, a generic package and a generic PCB infrastructure for fast
validation of mixed signal IP.

Title: Enabling DFT Logic and Timing Verification in Mixed-Signal Designs

2:50 p.m. - 3:30 p.m. – Ballroom B

Bing Chuang and Kaneez Tumpa, Rambus Inc.

In this talk, Rambus will discuss a design-for-test (DFT) methodology for
getting test coverage in custom digital data paths used in the design of
high-speed interfaces.

Title: 3D Si Interposer Design and Electrical Performance Study

9:20 a.m. - 10:00 a.m. – Ballroom B

Mandy (Ying) Ji, Ming Li, Julia Cline, David Secker and Kevin Cai, Rambus Inc.

This session provides design guidelines for signal routing and signal
integrity (loss, impedance control, crosstalk, eye diagram, etc.) for
frequencies up to 20 GHz. Power delivery guidelines will be presented for RDL
layers, taking into consideration the IR drop challenges.

Title: A 256-GB/s Memory Subsystem Built Using a Double-Sided IC Package with
a Memory Controller and 3D-Stacked DRAM

10:15 a.m. - 10:55 a.m. – Ballroom C

Scott Best, David Secker, Thomas Giovannini, Don Mullen, Ming Li and Mandy Ji,
Rambus Inc.

In this session, Rambus will present a processor and DRAM memory subsystem
built using a double-sided, flip-chip substrate with a processor die on one
side of the package and a thermally isolated, disaggregated memory chip on the
other side.

Title: Design and Analysis of a Twisted Line Structure for High Speed Coded
Differential Signaling

10:15 a.m. - 10:55 a.m. – Ballroom D

Wendem Beyene, Rambus Inc.

This session introduces the design and analysis of a high-speed parallel
interface for a new signaling scheme called coded differential (CD) signaling.

Title: Accurate Receiver Clock Positioning in High-Speed Parallel Buses

11:05 a.m. - 11:45 a.m. – Ballroom C

Arun Vaidyanath, Christopher Madden and Yohan Frans, Rambus Inc.

This session reviews the pros and cons of various approaches to center the
receiver clock. Even with accurate positioning of the receiver clock, the
system will still experience drift due to thermal and other effects. This
session also presents an efficient way to periodically calibrate the timing
center to mitigate timing drift due to temperature variation.
