Whitepaper - QDR SRAM and RLDRAM: A Comparative Analysis
News Release from:
10 March 2011
Today's high-speed networking applications require high-bandwidth and high-density memory solutions. For instance, typical networking line cards need memories for a variety of operations that include packet buffering, table lookup, and queue management among a host of other functions.
Choosing the right memory solution is pivotal to ensuring that the memory bandwidth does not become a bottleneck on the throughput of the application. This white paper discusses memory solutions suitable for networking applications-specifically, Quad Data Rate Static RAM (QDR SRAMs) and Reduced Latency Dynamic RAM (RLDRAM)-and compares them in relation to the applications they are best suited for.
