Carbon Cadence Model Library

Cadence™ Software is a world-leading provider of electronic design automation (EDA) tools, intellectual property (IP), software and design platforms for system-on-chip (SoC) design and verification. We deliver the industry's most widely-used solutions for deploying PCI Express, USB, NAND Flash and DDR SDRAM subsystems in electronic designs. Developers use Cadence's EDA, IP products and services to simplify design, reduce risk, and accelerate time-to-market for their complex SoC designs.

DDR Memory Controller IP Databahn is the industry-leading IP solution for high-performance DDR memory controllers. Databahn reduces risk and speeds time-to-market for deploying memory interfaces in silicon. The Databahn DDR memory controller IP is currently licensed for use in over 260 designs and is implemented in over 100 chips in silicon. Databahn provides chip designers with the ability to configure the optimal memory controller IP for performance, power and gate-count requirements.

Robust configurability and state-of-the-art features to effectively insulate SoC designers from fast-changing protocols and details associated with DRAM device technology. Databahn's advanced multi-port arbitration engine ensures optimal data transfer to all SoC clients. Databahn memory controller cores are also highly configurable and designed to work optimally for consumer, enterprise and mobile applications. Databahn memory controller IP is vendor/process independent and provides configurable support for DDR1, DDR2, DDR3, LPDDR1, LPDDR2 and LPDDR2-NVM devices. Databahn IP can be efficiently configured for design-specific requirements, and are also available as pre-configured cores optimized for key market applications.

The Carbon Model Library of Cadence Databahn IP features 100% implementation accurate models of Databahn Memory Controllers derived from memory controller RTL and which include high-performance reordering and arbitration algorithms that are directly transferrable to real chips.
