Title (EN) A METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR CONFIGURING AND INITIALIZING A MEMORY DEVICE AND MEMORY CHANNEL
(FR) PROCEDE ET APPAREIL DE CONFIGURATION ET D'INITIALISATION D'UN DISPOSITIF A MEMOIRE ET D'UN CANAL DE MEMOIRE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A method and apparatus for configuring and/or initializing memory devices (160-162, 168, 170, 175). A disclosed method initializes a memory controller (100) and a plurality of memory controller configuration registers (112). Serial identification numbers are assigned to memory devices (160-162, 168, 170, 175) coupled to the memory controller (100). Additionally, groups of device identification numbers, which are based at least in part on the memory device sizes, are assigned to the memory devices (160-162, 168, 170, 175), and the memory devices (160-162, 168, 170, 175) are enabled.
(FR)L'invention concerne un procédé et un appareil de configuration et/ou d'initialisation de dispositifs à mémoire (160-162, 168, 170, 175). Un procédé décrit initialise un contrôleur (100) de mémoire ainsi qu'une pluralité de registres (112) de configuration de contrôleur de mémoire. Des numéros d'identification série sont affectés aux dispositifs à mémoire (160-162, 168, 170, 175) couplés au contrôleur (100) de mémoire. De plus, des groupes de numéros d'identification des dispositifs, lesquels sont basés au moins en partie sur les tailles des dispositifs à mémoire, sont attribués aux dispositifs à mémoire (160-162, 168, 170, 175), et les dispositifs à mémoire (160-162, 168, 170, 175) sont validés.
