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 It superseded the original DDR SDRAM specification, and is superseded by ..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. At least one manufacturer has reported this reflects successful testing at a higher-than-standard data rate [4] whilst others simply specofication up for the name. This packaging change was necessary to maintain signal integrity at higher bus speeds. The definitions of kilo, giga, and mega based on powers of two are included only to reflect common usage.

An alternative system is found in Amendment 2 to IEC The lower memory clock frequency may also enable power reductions in applications that do not require the highest available data rates. The two factors combine to produce a total of four data transfers per internal clock cycle.

However, latency is greatly increased as a trade-off. Please update this article to reflect recent events or newly specifiction information. Such chips draw significantly more power than slower-clocked chips, but usually offered little or no improvement in real-world performance.

DDR2’s bus frequency is boosted by electrical interface improvements, on-die terminationprefetch buffers and off-chip drivers. During an access, four bits were read or written to or from a four-bit-deep prefetch queue.


However, further confusion has been added to the mix with the appearance of budget and mid-range graphics cards which claim to use “GDDR2”. Dynamic random-access memory DRAM.

It had severe overheating issues due to the nominal DDR voltages. In other projects Wikimedia Commons. These chips cannot achieve the clock rates of GDDR3 but are inexpensive and fast enough to be used as memory on mid-range cards. 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 are mostly standard DDR chips that have been tested and rated to be capable of operation at higher clock rates by the manufacturer. DDR2 started to become competitive against the older DDR standard by the end ofas modules with lower latencies became available. DIMMs are identified by their peak transfer capacity often called bandwidth.

Alternatively, DDR2 memory operating at twice the external data bus clock rate as DDR may provide specificatioon the bandwidth with the same latency. This is because DDR2 memory modules transfer data on a ddd2 that is ddf2 data bits wide, and since a byte comprises 8 bits, this equates to 8 bytes of data per transfer. The purpose of the standard is to promote the uniform use of symbols, abbreviations, terms, and definitions throughout the semiconductor industry.


Both performed worse than the original DDR specification due to higher latency, which made total access times longer. The specification defines the two common units of information: This page was last edited on 11 Januaryat 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.

The document notes that these prefixes are used in their decimal specificatioh for serial communication data rates measured in bits. DDR2 was introduced in the second quarter of at two initial clock rates: 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.


The specification notes that these prefixes are included in the document only to reflect common usage. This queue received or transmitted its data over the data bus in two data bus clock cycles each clock cycle transferred two bits of data. 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 with minimum delay the proper product for use by those other than JEDEC members, whether the standard is to be used either domestically or internationally.
