Xeon D DDR4 INterface

I am planning to use 16Nos of x8 wide 16Gb DDR4 chips (Total 32GB) per channel of Xeon D 1559 Processor. How could I interface these chips without using any mux in-between. Is there any DDR4 interface guide for Xeon D 1500 series. 

Please Note: Board works in Industrial temperature (-40C to 90C)

Hi @CarlosAM_INTEL 

Thanks for your reply. I went through the section you mentioned in reply. 

I think i have to detail my query. I am planning to use 32GB DDR4 per channel. The maximum memory size available in industrial temperature grade is 16Gb. So I have to use 16 Numbers. Processor is 64 bit data wide. So that I should chose a x4 wide 16 Nos. of DDR4 chips. But x4 wide chips are not available in that specified temperature grade. Least available is x8 wide. So now I am with 16 nos. of 16Gb, x8 wide DDR4 chips. Please suggest me a scheme where I can effectively use this DDR4.

Hi @CarlosAM_INTEL ,

 

Thanks for the respose. I checked those parts listed in that document. But I don't think any of them meeting my requirements. First of all we are not using DIMM modules. We have to use DDR4 chips. Our requirement is 32GB. So can you suggest a part which I could use for this

Hello, @Athuljith:

Thanks for your reply.

The tested and validated type of memories are listed in Table 6-2, on page 133 of the PDG mentioned on our first communication and the list cited in our previous message.

In case you want to use a different type or configuration than the listed in the documentation, it should be tested and validated on your own.

Best regards,

@CarlosAM_INTEL.
