Demo version of software available. Please contact us for a copy.

The DDR3 Memory Compliance Analysis package enables and automates measurement of DDR3 bus activity for fast and easy functional testing, and extensive compliance, statistical, and performance analysis.

  • Easily correlate with other buses or memory channels
  • Extensive JEDEC DDR3 compliance analysis
  • Quick and easy setup with no calibration required
  • Ultra-fidelity interconnects insure passive connection to your system
  • Automated acquisition and measurement for analysis of intermittent or infrequent events
  • Test up to two, fully loaded, quad-rank memory channels
  • Compare and correlate to other buses (e.g. PCIe) or memory channels
  • DDR3-2400 / DDR3-2133 / DDR3-1866 / DDR3-1600 / DDR3-1333 / DDR3-1066 / DDR3-800 / DDR3-CUSTOM

Quick Setup & Automated Acquisition

Quick setup, automated analysis, and zero calibration provide results extremely quickly.

  • Zero calibration needed
  • Build custom test runs to zero in on compliance issues
  • Automated acquisition
  • Automated analysis
  • Memory controller & JEDEC parameters predefined

Performance & Statistical Analysis

Extensive compliance, statistical, and performance analysis information are displayed in tabular and graphical displays. Exporting of data is also available for customized analysis. The metrics covered include:

  • Data bus performance
  • Rank / Bank / System Utilization
  • Actual transfer rate measurements
  • Compliance summaries with margins
  • Error (timing violation) reporting

Detailed Data at Your Fingertips

In addition to performance/statistical analysis and automated acquisition, detailed analysis results are also available for all acquisitions in a test run as well as all the acquired data from all acquisitions in a test run.

  • Quickly navigate through multiple acquisitions
  • Zero in on compliance problems right inside a waveform or listing window
  • Listing and waveform windows with compliance violations built in
  • Add cursors, jump to violations, see min/max measurements, lock data windows and more!
  • Multi-acquisition data management
