Primitive: Dedicated Dual Data Rate (DDR) Output Register


This design element is a dedicated output register for use in transmitting double data rate (DDR) signals from FPGA devices. The ODDR interface with the FPGA fabric is not limited to opposite clock edges. It can be configured to present date from the FPGA fabric at the same clock edge. This feature allows designers to avoid additional timing complexities and CLB usage. The ODDR also works with SelectIO™ features.

ODDR Modes

This element has two modes of operation. These modes are set by the DDR_CLK_EDGE attribute.

  • OPPOSITE_EDGE mode The data transmit interface uses classic DDR methodology. Given a data and clock at pin D1-2 and C respectively, D1 is sampled at every positive edge of clock C and D2 is sampled at every negative edge of clock C. Q changes every clock edge.

  • SAME_EDGE mode Data is still transmitted at the output of the ODDR by opposite edges of clock C. However, the two inputs to the ODDR are clocked with a positive clock edge of clock signal C and an extra register is clocked with a negative clock edge of clock signal C. Using this feature, DDR data can now be presented into the ODDR at the same clock edge.

Port Descriptions

Port Direction Width Function
Q Output 1 Data Output (DDR): The ODDR output that connects to the IOB pad.
C Input 1 Clock Input: The C pin represents the clock input pin.
CE Input 1 Clock Enable Input: When asserted High, this port enables the clock input on port C.
D1 : D2 Input 1 (each) Data Input: This pin is where the DDR data is presented into the ODDR module.
R Input 1 Reset: Depends on how SRTYPE is set.
S Input 1 Set: Active-High asynchronous set pin. This pin can also be Synchronous depending on the SRTYPE attribute.
