New generations of memory technology like DDR4 and LPDDR3 bring higher speeds, lower I/O voltage, and various form factors to meet different application needs. The result is new debug and validation challenges with tighter margins, faster edge rates and complex bus protocol.

Tektronix provides the most comprehensive tool set for memory validation and debug:

  • Electrical Validation for DDR:
    Capture, measure and characterize DDR memory interfaced signal behavior, jitter, eye size, crossover, strobes/clock alignment, bit errors.
  • Logic Validation for DDR:
    Capture and measure the digital logic state of the DDR memory interface and perform bus cycle based timing and protocol analysis.
  • Protocol Performance Validation for DDR:
    Capture and analyze bus commands, control timing sequences, compare results to the memory interface specification and analyze bus traffic as indicators of bus utilization and performance.
