PISMO2 Boards

The modern proliferation of mobile devices has generated a large number of widely differing integrated circuit (IC) types. System designers are continually challenged to find the right blend of components to suit these varying ICs and application requirements. Identifying the right technology, bus interface, density, and package requires expensive and time-consuming simulation and validation. To avoid cost and schedule overruns, designers typically limit themselves to no more than two solutions.

Simplify Memory Selection with Micron PISMO2™ Boards

The platform-independent storage module PISMO™ specifications address these issues by providing a standard for convenient, interchangeable memory test boards. PISMO boards significantly reduce design inefficiencies, providing a huge benefit for the short development cycles of consumer products.

Since first forming in 2003, the PISMO Council has released two specifications: PISMO1, which supported only burst static devices; and PISMO2, a wider standard that expanded support to DRAM devices. The specifications have generated widespread consensus and support by more than a dozen device manufacturers, including Micron.

PISMO2 Boards

PISMO cards are pre-validated using advanced Micron Processor Development platforms. To speed up the system validation process, Micron may share all the documentation generated in this process (signal integrity analysis, function and electrical compatibility report, and PISMO card EBD model) with eligible customers.
