LPDDR2 SDRAM Controller Lite IP Core

JESD209-2B General-purpose Memory Controller

Lattice FPGA based LPDDR2 solution – The Lattice Low Power Double Data Rate (LPDDR2) Synchronous Dynamic Random Access Memory (SDRAM) Controller Lite is a general-purpose memory controller that interfaces with industry standard LPDDR2 memory devices and modules compliant with the JESD209-2B specification.

Easily integrate LPDDR2 into your design – This IP core reduces the effort required to integrate the LPDDR2 memory controller with the remainder of the customer design.


  • Interfaces to Industry Standard LPDDR2 SDRAM components and modules compliant with the JESD209-2B specification
  • High-Performance LPDDR2 performance, up to 400 MHz/800 Mbps operation
  • Supports automatic LPDDR2 SDRAM initialization and refresh
  • Supports Deep Power Down Mode

Note: This “Lite” version IP only supports features and commands that LPDDR2 have in common with LPDDR3. This means burst lengths of 8 is supported, but 4 and 16 are not. Also, flash memory commands (LPDDR2-N) are not supported.

1. Performance and utilization data are generated targeting an LFE5UM-85F-8BG756CES device using Lattice Diamond 3.10 design software with an LFE5UM control pack. Performance may vary when using a different software version or targeting a different device density or speed grade within the ECP5 family.
2. Numbers shown in the I/O column represent the number of primary I/Os at the LPDDR2 memory interface. User interface (local side) I/Os are not included.
3. The LPDDR2 IP core can operate at 400 MHz (800 LPDDR2) in the fastest speed-grade (-8) when the data width is 32 bits or less and one chip select is used.
