TPS7H3301-SP: Question on Specifications

Part Number: TPS7H3301-SP

The TPS7H3301HKR datasheet says VTTREF buffered reference = ±15-mV accuracy. But the JEDEC standard says VTTREF has a required range of 0.49 * VDD to 0.51 * VDD. For a VDD input voltage of 1.35V - which the datasheet says is allowed - the JEDEC limits are 0.6615V to 0.6885V, or 1.35V/2 ±13.5-mV. So the JEDEC specification is tighter than the device specification.

Is there something I am missing here? Is there an argument as to why the IC is acceptable in this application?

  • James,

    You are correct, the device falls within the JEDEC specifications up to DDR3.  DDR3L with lower voltage no longer meets the +/-1% tolerance.

    However, I believe some additional margin is available if the module is not a traditional DIMM module as the JEDEC spec was designed for.

    It is likely that a use case in space will not have a DIMM socket,and additional interconnect required for a socket, but will have memory "module" on same board as the terminator and controller.   This is difficult to estimate the gain in margin with this improved interconnect.

    I can work with you via email to provide some options on improving this margin for a DDR3L design.

    I will send you a direct email to discuss.
