Renaissance 4X family of memory IP cores introduces a set of memory generators that add intelligence and complement physical memory cores to create up to four active ports with any combination of read/write ports. The new memories offer up to a 4X increase in memory operations per second (MOPS), easily achieving 4000 Million MOPS in a 28nm process running at 1GHz. In addition, Renaissance 4X depending on the configuration, can save up to 60% in area and power.
Renaissance 4X meets the data requirements of next-generation SoCs used in networking and communication subsystems which have aggregated speeds above 400 Gb/s. This means that Renaissance 4X has extensive applicability for memories which require multiple memory accesses per cycle, such as packet buffers, counters, netflow, linked lists, schedulers, lookup tables, etc. In addition, Renaissance 4X provides multiport memories for shared L2 and L3 cache architectures for high performance multicore SoCs.
Renaissance 4X alleviates the need for custom memory solutions and creates a versatile memory portfolio offering of six memory generators: a 4-port (2R2W), specialty 3-port memories 3Ror1W, 1R2W, 2R1W; and specialty 4-port memories 4Ror1W, 3R1W that cater to different memory requirements and application needs.
Memoir’s product uses standard single-port BIST and DFT methodologies, contains RTL that has been exhaustively verified using formal methodologies, and does not require silicon verification. Through this combination of benefits, Renaissance 4X also provides a significant time-to-market advantage, lowers product development cost and reduces risk. With Renaissance 4X, customers have greater flexibility and more options than what has been traditionally available.
