MemConnect™ is a Comprehensive, Customizable, and Silicon Proven IP Solution for memory system design. It is a complete memory system supporting any combinations of SDR SDRAM, DDR, DDR2, Mobile SDR, FCRAM, Flash, EEPROM, SRAM and NAND Flash, all in one IP core. MemConnect supports a complete line of user interfaces including AMBA AHB, AXI, MIPS SysAD and EC interface, PowerPC, PCI, PCI-X, PCI Express, a built-in DMA controller, as well as a high performance simple user interfaces for shared memory access within an SOC design. Designers can customize and choose any combinations of memory type(s) and bus interface(s) for their applications without paying a penalty for unused logic. With flexibility and customization being an integral part of its design approach, MemConnect is ideally suitable for a wide range of applications, ranging from high-reliability memory systems for aerospace applications to high volume, low cost systems used in consumer applications.
How to start
MemConnect comes with the MemDesigner™ software which allows the user to customize the functions of the IP core according to his/her needs. With MemDesigner, the user has control over each individual block and has the ability to choose additional features such as arbitration or error correction (ECC). This allows the user to create a customized, complete subsystem, with the confidence that comes from quality and silicon proven IP.
