Additive latency is an efficiency feature in SDRAM memories.It is discussed in section 184.108.40.206 of JEDEC Specification JESD79-3 DDR3 SDRAM Standard and 2.5 of JEDEC Specification JESD79-2 DDR2 SDRAM Standard (in the "Bank activate command" section).Additive latency allows a read or write command to be issued immediately following the active command.
This feature is not supported in the MIG Spartan-6 MCB controller and PHY.
