Keysight Technologies Introduces Software Tool that Enables Deeper, Easier Debugging of DDR4, LPDDR4 Devices
Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: KEYS) introduced a DDR4 and LPDDR4 debugging software tool that helps memory designers quickly perform JEDEC compliance measurements and determine the root cause of test failures. With the software tool's quick electrical, timing and eye-diagram analysis capability, designers can easily pinpoint and navigate to areas or data signals of interest for further analysis, as well as collection and analysis of statistical data. The debug software runs on Keysight Infiniium 9000A, S-Series, 90000A, V-Series and Z-Series oscilloscopes.
For engineers who work in the computer, server and mobile device industries, the new tool makes it easier to debug DDR memory devices. The DDR debug tool also helps save design cost and time by enabling analysis of multiple data lane eye diagrams to help engineers pick data with smaller eyes for further compliance testing. In addition, the tool lets engineers view multiple data lane read and write eye diagrams simultaneously.
The N6462A-3FP DDR4 and N6462A-4FP LPDDR4 debug software tools work on saved waveform files from Keysight oscilloscopes or W2531EP DDR4 Compliance Test Bench software. Together with the W2531EP DDR4 Compliance Test Bench software, the debug tool helps solve the problem of simulation and measurement correlation.
"This new DDR debug software tool helps customers find the root cause of their DDR design failures quickly," said Dave Cipriani, vice president and general manager of Keysight's Oscilloscope and Protocol Division. "This is a great addition to our DDR solution portfolio and complements Keysight's DDR simulation software to provide full debugging capability before an engineer releases a design for board fabrication."
