Fly-by topology guidelines for IMX6

624 Views
Contributor I

I am designing a Custom based on IMX6Q/D/Dual Lite and using four DDR3 and planning to use Fly-by topology for routing.

HW Design Checking List for i.Mx6 Rev2.5 has Ref-a5 that has recommendation for DDR3 routing by group. Does these guidelines apply to tree topology routing only? If yes are there Fly-by topology guidelines as well.

Please let me know as I am setting up the routing constraints and will be very helpful.

Hi, Raj

you can use the same recommendations (described in HW Design Checking List)

for Fly-by topology guidelines as well. However since these recommendations are difficult

to implement, it is highly recommended to use ibis modelling.

Freescale has not reference design with Fly-by topology, so there are no

recommendations in HW Design Checking List.

I have seen an aplpication note AN3940 from Freescale. It is not necessarily for IMX6 processors but since DDR3 design is standard, can I use the recommendation from there. This seems to be more logical and implementable than that givein in i.Mx6 Rev2.5 checklist for a fly by topology.

I am of the view that i.Mx6 Rev2.5 recommendations are more suited to Tree-topology and also works well when DDR3 chips are mounted on both sides of the board.

Please let me know if you think otherwise.
