"Towards an Heterogeneous Memory Channel with Hybrid Modules"
Cadence MemCon, October 2015

The DRAM memory channel continues to evolve to adapt to new requirements.  Hybrid memory modules convert the RAS-CAS timings of the DRAM channel to allow new memory media types such as Flash to be incorporated onto the channel.


JEDEC JC-45 committee in cooperation with SNIA announced support for "hybrid" memory modules on DDR4 channels that support non-DRAM devices such as Flash memory.
