Memory Applications
We will review a few common applications to illustrate how the different memory technologies advantages and disadvantages influence device selection.
Microprocessor / Microcontroller data storage Many Microprocessor (MPU) or Microcontroller (MCU) applications require external data memory to store intermediate data used during computations or data transfer. Large audio files or video frames will typically require more memory that an MCU or MPU has internally. If large amounts of data need to be accessed then DRAM is usually the best alternative. For small amounts of data SRAM or PSRAM (DRAM with an SRAM interface and hidden refresh for those of you who skipped the memory Technology overview) are good choices. Data that needs to be modified frequently, like intermediate data during computation most will most likely need to use a Volatile technology- SRAM or DRAM. If the data is written to less frequently, perhaps to store configuration data that needs to be saved between power cycles (like brightness levels for LEDs displays in a kiosk) then EEPROM devices are a good fit. Small amounts of data can be easily written to, typically at the byte level, using EEPROM. Many times the external memory controller within the MCU/MPU may dictate the choices available to the designer. Some processors have built-in SRAM, DRAM or EEPROM interfaces or even Flash controllers. Determine the types of interfaces your MCU/MPU supports (or even better select an MCU/MPU with your optimal memory interface in mind) and then select the best memory device from those supported by your MCU/ MPU. Figure 1 shows three common architectures- one where a small amount of external data is required and an SRAM/PSRAM is sufficient, one where the data requirement is larger and a DRAM is needs and one where the data is modified infrequently and an EEPROM is the best choice.

capacity and low cost. NAND Flash is block oriented and thus can’t be used directly for Execute in Place applications, but is well suited for Transfer and Execute architectures. Code can be transferred a block at a time into DRAM (or even low power SRAM) and if a simple memory management controller is used not all the code needs to reside in the DRAM (or SRAM). This approach can further reduce power consumption since a smaller execution memory can be used. coMMunications interface MeMory Communications processors, usually in the form of a specialized high-performance processor with integrated communications oriented peripherals, form the backbone of most modern communications

Figure 1: MCU/MPU Data Storage Examples

Microprocessor / Microcontroller code storage One of the more common applications for semiconductor memory is as external code storage for Microprocessors or Microcontrollers. Most Microprocessors units (MPU) require external code storage while most MCUs have internal code storage. In some applications however MCU internal code is not large enough for the application making it necessary to add external code storage to the design. Deciding on the type of memory device to use for external storage will depend whether the processor will need to execute code directly out of the external device (Execute in Place) or if the code can first be read out of the code storage device and loaded into another memory from which the processor accesses code (Transfer and Execute). Many times the additional memory is a high capacity DRAM, perhaps with extra low power features. Initially it might seem like this takes an additional memory device, but if the processor needs an external data memory anyway (perhaps for storing large intermediate video or audio files), the use if it for code execution

as well may make sense. If the low power modes of the DRAM can reduce power significantly this can be an improvement over the use of a separate code only storage device. The data transfer from code storage to DRAM will require a small boot loader and will extend the initialization

systems. These data hungry algorithms typically require external memory to buffer data and to help route packet data to the right receiving process. The example communications system in Figure 3 shows a communications processor between multiple asynchronous communications channels and a

high-speed Gigabit Ethernet port. The communications channels need to be consolidated, packetized and transferred over the Gigabit Ethernet port. Communications traffic needs to meet specific Quality of Service (QoS) requirements so the Communications Processor needs to prioritize traffic in order to achieve the required service levels.

During packet processing it will be important for the Communications Processor to have fast access to the routing tables and various QoS metrics needed to route packets efficiently. These tables will need to be updated frequently as traffic rates changes and sender/receiver pairs attach and detach. An RLDRAM is a good choice for the high-

Applications for this type of design include environmental sensors (like temperature, chemical or radiation detectors), medical instruments (like blood glucose meters or heart rate monitors), inventory control scanner/ recorders, or automotive sensors (tire pressure or air bag deployment devices)- just to name a few.

convenient option for Instrumentation designs that need to move captured data to a laptop computer for further processing is a USB Flash drive. The drive can be easily removed from the handheld device and inserted into a laptops USB port. The intermediate data used by the data processing algorithm can be stored in low-power Mobile DDR SDRAM. In between measurements the Mobile DDR SDRAM can be put into a low-power mode that disables memory accesses to save power. Data in the memory is retained and can be accessed when a new measurement is required. Some applications might be able to save data from the SDRAM to Flash and then power down both the SDRAM and the MPU completely, reducing power consumption even more. When operation resumes the MPU will wake-up, read data from Flash and load it into SDRAM so processing can continue.

Multiple Communications Channels

Figure 3: Example Communication System Memory Requirements

Communication systems typically require synchronization between various asynchronous communications channels and so it is in the example design. A FIFO memory is an excellent way to transition from one clock domain to another since the write port of the FIFO can run independently from the read port. The FIFO also provides the needed buffering so that data can be transferred at different burst rates, since channel inputs will not always be delivered at the same rate that the channel output needs to process data. In our example design an FPGA is used to consolidate the multiple Communications Channels, and then to transfer the data to the FIFO one buffer at a time. The Communications Processor reads the data from the FIFO, consolidates and packetizes the data for optimal transmission over the Gigabit Ethernet port. The FIFO effectively ‘bridges’ the processor time domain from the communications time domain.

speed, low latency and random access requirements of this type of algorithm. Many Communications Processors have RLDRAM interfaces built-in, making it easy to implement RLDRAM-based packet processing systems. HandHeld instruMentation- code and data storage A variety of battery operated handheld instrumentation applicationsfrom simple power meter monitors to complex automatic electronic defibrillators- use MCU or MPU based processors to run the algorithms required to capture, process and record data from a variety of inputs that are usually analog. In the example design shown in Figure 4, a low-power MCU is used to sense analog inputs, process the inputs to create a digital recording and store a summary of the measurement in non-volatile memory that can be removed from the instrument for archival storage or further processing.

Hundreds of applications will use architectures similar to that shown in Figure 4. The data storage memory needs to be removable and easily read/written to by the MPU. Standard interfaces like those used for Memory Cards (like CompactFlash, Secure Digital, or MicroSD) are possible options and provide a significant amount of data in a small and compact format. A

LT3799 - Offline Isolated Flyback LED Controller with Active PFC
The LT3799 is optimized for LED applications requiring 4W to over 100W of LED power and also compatible with standard TRIAC inwall dimmers.
The LT®3799 is an isolated flyback controller with power factor correction specifically designed for driving LEDs. The controller operates using critical conduction mode allowing the use of a small transformer. Using a novel current sensing scheme, the controller is able to deliver a well regulated current to the secondary side without using an opto-coupler. A strong gate driver is included to drive an external high voltage MOSFET. Utilizing an onboard multiplier, the LT3799 typically achieves power factors of 0.97. The FAULT pin provides notification of open and short LED conditions. The LT3799 uses a micropower

hysteretic start-up to efficiently operate at offline input voltages, with a third winding to provide power to the part. An internal LDO provides a well regulated supply for the part’s internal circuitry and gate driver.

FEATURES:
 Isolated PFC LED Driver with Minimum Number of External Components  TRIAC Dimmable  VIN and VOUT Limited Only by External Components  Active Power Factor Correction (Typical PFC > 0.97)  Low Harmonic Content  No Opto-Coupler Required  Accurate Regulated LED Current (±5% Typical)  Open LED and Shorted LED Protection  Thermally Enhanced 16-lead MSOP Package

Using a Micrel Ethernet PHY and a Lattice ECP3 FPGA to Create an Ethernet Subsystem
Many modern applications use FPGAs to implement complex system level building blocks. These building blocks can contain processors, DSPs, bus interface and even video and audio functions. Getting high-speed data on and off the FPGA can be accomplished by using a standard Ethernet interface and this leverages a wide range of established protocols, software platforms and IP. FPGA’s usually requires an Ethernet Interface IP Core inside the FPGA and some external devices, typically an Ethernet Physical (PHY) layer device and a connector. As a target application example we will use a video inspection system used in an assembly line application. This type of embedded video processor needs to fit into a very small form factor and will monitor and control inspection of product produced by an assembly. Ethernet is being used to communicate to the controller so that commands and data received by the controller can be relayed to the central processing location. A large number of controllers will be distributed throughout the factory at various stages of the manufacturing process. Because of the data transmission speed required high-speed Ethernet is needed, but backwards compatibility to standard Ethernet is an advantage. Significant DSP functionality is desired so that video images may be processed quickly and any product quality issues spotted quickly. Creating an Ethernet subsystem involves a variety of design considerations. This application note provides a step-by-step guide for a designer who needs to quickly and efficiently create an Ethernet subsystem using a Lattice ECP3 FPGA, and a Micrel Ethernet PHY.

Creating a Power Subsystem for Lattice XP2 FPGAs using Linear Technology Power Devices
FPGAs now require extensive power subsystems to provide the variety of voltages and high-power required for parallel I/O banks, FPGA Core, and various clocking, delay and analog-like functions. Precise control of voltages, even in noisy environments and over wide current ranges can minimize a host of potential system problems. Using LTC power devices- regulators and/or power modules- is an excellent way to keep potential power problems away from your design. This application note provides a step-by-step guide for a design engineer who needs to quickly and efficiently create a Power subsystem using a LTC power products and a Lattice XP2 FPGA. It will review the LTC power devices and the Lattice XP2. This combination of devices is excellent for a wide range of applications in the consumer, industrial, communications and networking industries. For this example design we will target an LED display lighting application. The FPGA will be monitoring and controlling the flow of data to the LEDs used on a large display surface, similar to those used as highway, sports venues or other high-traffic high-visibility locations. The FPGA will be responsible for controlling the light output of the LEDs based on environmental conditions (temperature and ambient light), the age of the LEDs, and a variety of other factors to improve image quality and to save power. The FPGA will require lots of IO capability, and a large number of general purpose logic elements. Some DSP and other simple arithmetic functions will be required for advanced light sensing features. Power is available from a low voltage, 12V DC supply source. Linear Technology has a wide range of power products including discrete regulators and the new µModule DC/DC regulator LTM46XX Family of integrated regulators. These regulators are a good choice for I/O voltage requirements, which typically require lower current than device core voltages. High current applications can use the compact, high-current µModule DC/DC regulators.
