Today, JEDEC has announced the publication of a new JESD209-5B Low Power Double Data Rate 5 (LPDDR5). TheJESD209-5B includes an update to the LPDDR5 standard which focuses on improving performance, power, and flexibility, and a new optional extension to LPDDR5, LPDDR5X standard.
Both the LPDDR5 and LPDDR5X have been designed to significantly increase RAM Speeds and efficiency so that they can be used in various fields like AI and 5G.
The JESD209-5B, developed by JEDEC’s JC-42.6 Subcommittee for Low Power Memories, can be downloaded from JEDEC’s official website.
Key updates to this latest version of LPDDR5 include:
•Speed extension up to 8533 Mbps (versus up to 6400 Mbps in the previous revision)
•Signal Integrity improvements with TX/RX equalization
•Reliability improvements via the new Adaptive Refresh Management feature
•The new LPDDR5X component of JESD209-5B is an optional extension intended to offer higher bandwidth and simplified architecture in support of enhanced 5G communication performance, and is designed for applications ranging from automotive to high resolution augmented reality/virtual reality and edge computing using AI.
“As one of the fastest memories in recent memory to move from concept to industry standard, LPDDR5x is not only a turbo-charged pacesetter for the smartphone marketplace,” according to Mian Quddus, JEDEC’s Chairman of the Board of Directors, “but a power-conserving solution that will set the bandwidth bar considerably higher in taking 5G into a wider consumer embrace worldwide.”
