Scope package tests DDR4, DDR3L, and LPDDR3
Staff - December 17, 2012Tektronix has added full electrical verification and conformance test support for JEDEC DDR4, DDR3L, and LPDDR3 memory standards to its DDRA analysis software for the MSO/DPO/DSA70000, DPO7000, and MSO/DPO5000 series oscilloscopes. The updated software now supports all variants of the DDR standard to enable design engineers to bring chips and systems that incorporate these next-generation memory technologies to market.
By automating test setup and execution, DDRA ensures designs are in full conformance with memory standards. If a memory system fails conformance testing, engineers can switch to debug mode and use such tools as Visual Trigger on Tektronix oscilloscopes to isolate events of interest for deeper root-cause analysis with the DPOJET jitter and eye measurement suite.
The company also offers new interposers (DIMM, package-on-package, and embedded) for DDR4 and LPDDR3. The controlled impedance and trace-length matching of these interposers in combination with de-embedded filters for the oscilloscope provide an accurate representation of the signal.
The DDR4 and LPDDR3 interposers and updated DDRA software will be available in the first quarter of 2013. Prices start at $5910. DDRA support for DDR4, DDR3L, and LPDDR3 will be a free upgrade for existing users.
