This paper presents a cost-effective area-IO DRAM (aDRAM)/logic integration implemented with CLC (chip-laminate-chip)-based system-in-a-package (SiP) technology. By inserting 512 area-IOs into the area-IO DRAM, the bandwidth of the area-IO DRAM can achieve 10GB/s when working under 166MHz. An interface module with configurable IO width was also developed to make this implementation platform able to be adapted by various applications. A performance analysis, including bandwidth and power is also presented in this paper. It is demonstrated that area-IO DRAM/logic integration with SiP technology provides significant cost-effective implementation methodology compared with embedded DRAM and off-chip DRAM.
