Teledyne LeCroy Announces DDR 3 / DDR 4 Compliance Analyzer

Low Cost JEDEC Protocol Compliance Analyzer Validation of DDR3 and DDR4 Protocol and Timing Parameters

MemCon, Santa Clara, CA, October 14, 2014 - Teledyne LeCroy, the worldwide leader in high speed I/O analysis and protocol test solutions, today announced its new Kibra 480 Compliance Analyzer. New DDR4 enabled systems are now available in the market. As these DDR4 enabled systems begin to proliferate, compliance testing becomes increasingly important. DDR4 doubles the speed of its predecessor DDR3, making compliance and validation more challenging. Teledyne LeCroy offers a unique low cost solution for DDR3 and DDR4 protocol compliance test.

The Kibra 480 Compliance Analyzer provides DDR memory developers, implementers and integrators a cost effective solution to verify and validate that their DDR memory design meets JEDEC compliance parameters. Supporting either DDR3 or DDR4, the Kibra 480 Compliance Analyzer can be set up in minutes and is quick and easy to use. A unique probing technique eliminates the need for time consuming calibration. Immediate feedback on violations allows users to quickly validate that their memory system meets JEDEC timing compliance and also allows rapid identification and elimination of any problem areas. Capturing the Command Address and Control bus, the Kibra 480 Compliance Analyzer can quickly identify timing issues associated with the JEDEC defined speed bins.

The Kibra 480 Compliance Analyzer comes with 4GB of recording memory allowing for long recording capability, and will trigger on any defined violation. JEDEC violations can be loaded based on the defined speed bin of the system under test, or modified by users for custom timing parameters. Over 50 timing and protocol violations are continuously monitored across two (2) DIMMs per channel, four (4) ranks per DIMM and eight (8) banks per rank for DDR3 or four (4) bank groups per rank and four (4) banks per bank group for DDR4. This allows for simultaneous compliance monitoring of over 3200 potential violations across up to 64 banks of memory.

Designed to support a multitude of DIMM options, the Kibra 480 Compliance Analyzer can be used with UDIMM, RDIMM, LRDIMM as well as all flavors of SODIMM, including DDR3 SOUDIMM with ECC and DDR3 SORDIMM.

Currently available and starting at $15,950.00 USD, the Kibra 480 Compliance Analyzer can also be upgraded with additional features to give full protocol and timing analysis as well as performance monitoring, virtually eliminating the need for a high cost logic analyzer.
