stratix10MX developer Kit HBM2 channel address renge

We refer the document UG20031”High Bandwidth Memory (HBM2) Interface Intel® FPGA IP User Guide”.

This IP can have 8 channels max. And can each channel access all HBM address 4GByte?

According to the referenced User guide fig16, the address bus width is 29bit in Byte.

I concern about each channel have an access limit 512MByte .

Hi,

 

Thank you for joining this Intel Community.

 

I am not the HBM2 expert, anyway I will help to check with my colleague regarding this inquiry.

Please allow me some time to check with him and I will update you ASAP.

 

Thank you for your kind understanding.

 

Regards,

Aida

Hi,

 

Good news! I have an update for you.

 

The HBM device has 2 type.

  • 4GB/4H refers to HBM2 device with a total device density of 4GB in a 4-high Stack,
  • 8GB8H refers to a total HBM2 device density of 8GB in an 8-high Stack.

 

Can you confirm which type are you referring to. Assuming it is 8GB type with 8-high stack:

  • In 8GB type, it consist of 8 channel which each channel is divided by two pseudo-channels.
  • 8GB is the total capacity of 8 channel. Thus, each channel can support 1GB and each pseudo-channels can support 512MB.

 

To answer your questions:

  1. And can each channel access all HBM address 4GByte? -- No, 4GB is the total density of 4 channels (if you are referring to 4GB4H device type)
  2.  I concern about each channel have an access limit 512MByte .-- If this is referring to each pseudo-channels, then yes, it can access limit 512MB.

 

I sincerely hope this helps.

 

Thanks.

 

Regards,

Aida
