Is your probing setup good enough to measure DDR3 signal integrity?
Design How-To  
7/13/2011   5 comments
DDD3 memory interface speeds have been going up steadily and are now approaching 2000 Mbps data rates. DDR4 is also nearly round the corner [6]. At these high data rates, it is becoming increasingly difficult to get good probing solutions which allow performing Signal Integrity characterization. High speed characterization is considered important for silicon based product development cycle. It is needed to understand the limitations of the current generation of DDR interface designs and to gear
