Rambus Unveils New Model to Monitor Energy Consumption in DRAM Devices
Applicable to all existing and emerging DRAM technologies
SUNNYVALE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Rambus Inc. (NASDAQ: RMBS), one of the world's premier technology
licensing companies, is set to unveil a new power modeling tool designed
to understand and predict energy consumption in current and future DRAM
devices. This breakthrough model will be presented by Rambus' Dr. Thomas
Vogelsang at the MICRO-43 conference in Atlanta, Georgia today at 1:30
"Power consumption is a serious challenge facing the DRAM industry.
Historically, datasheets have been used to compute DRAM power, yet these
tools have limited information with respect to future DRAM bandwidth
requirements," said Dr. Gary Bronner, director of Rambus Labs. "This
flexible power model is an industry first that allows engineers to
extrapolate DRAM energy consumption to future DRAM generations."
During this presentation, Dr. Vogelsang will unveil this new flexible
DRAM power model that can be used to calculate power usage. Attendees
will hear how this model allows the calculation of DRAM power with an
accuracy level between that of using datasheet values and full
transistor level simulations.
Following MICRO-43, Dr. Vogelsang's presentation will be available at
the Rambus media library: http://www.rambus.com/us/library/and
the IEEE Xplore® digital library: http://ieeexplore.ieee.org/xpl/conferences.jsp
