Nexys4DDR

We have been anxiously awaiting this board’s release ever since we received an end-of-life notice from Micron (our memory provider) on the MT45W8MW16BGX-701, cellular RAM that we had been using on all of our Nexys-class products. Rather than strip features off the current Nexys 4, we decided to evolve the product line to accept DDR Memory (we surveyed our industry customers and ¬†found that many of them preferred DDR memory in designs).

We worked on creating a custom memory access module that should be minimally different between the Nexys 4 and the Nexys 4 DDR.

Since we were given advance notice of the memory obsolescence, we made a very large buy of memory to help pad the transition between the existing Nexys products to the Nexys 4 DDR.

 

If you have any questions if your board/course is affected, you can contact us on our forums.
