Title: APPARATUS, SYSTEM AND METHOD TO PROVIDE PLATFORM SUPPORT FOR MULTIPLE MEMORY TECHNOLOGIES
Abstract:
Techniques and mechanisms to exchange communications via a printed circuit board (PCB) between a processor device and a memory device. In an embodiment, the processor device is configured based on a memory type of the memory device to an interface mode of multiple interface modes each corresponding to a different respective one of multiple memory standards. A voltage regulator (VR) is programmed, based on the memory type, to a VR mode to provide one or more voltages to the memory device via a hardware interface on the PCB. In another embodiment, x signal lines of an interconnect disposed in or on the PCB are each coupled between the processor device and the memory device to one another. The value x is an integer equal to a total number of signals of a superset of sets of signals each specified by a different respective one of the multiple memory standards.
