Memory module with dynamic stripe width Abstract
In a memory module having a buffer component, a plurality of data signaling paths and a plurality of memory dies each coupled to a respective one of the data signaling paths, the buffer component receives and stores a first configuration value that specifies a memory-die quantity N, where N is permitted to range from a first value corresponding to the quantity of the data signaling paths to at least one value less than the first value. The buffer component further receives a memory read command and enables, in accordance with the first configuration value, a quantity N of the memory dies to output read data in response to the memory read command.
