Santa Clara, Calif. Agilent Technologies Inc. claims the industry's first oscilloscope-based DDR3 compliance test application. The U7231A DDR3 test application, which runs on Infiniium 54850 and 80000 Series oscilloscopes, provides DDR3 compliance measurements based on the Joint Electronic Device Engineering Council (JEDEC) JESD79-3 DDR3 SDRAM Specifications. It covers clock, electrical and timing parameters.
Targeting engineers who work in the computer, data storage, electronic data processing and consumer electronics industries, this application features Advanced Debug mode, which provides critical measurements such as eye-diagram analysis, mask tests, ringing measurements and other tests that are not covered in the JEDEC specifications.
The U7231A DDR3 application automatically configures the oscilloscope for each test and generates a HTML report at the end of the test. It compares the results with the specification test limit and indicates how closely the device passes or fails each test.
When a problem is encountered during the test, engineers can use the Advanced Debug feature to analyze the cause. The application sets up the scope to separate read and write signals so engineers can debug signal integrity issues. Infiniium oscilloscopes also feature InfiniiScan, which is a tool for finding signal problems.
Pricing: The Agilent U7231A compliance test application is available now at a price of $3,000.
