Technical Library
Seminar "DDR Analysis & Testing"

In cooperation with EyeKnowHow

Herman Ruckerbauer


What you always wanted to know about memory!
... But never had the right expert to ask!
You are developing hardware e. g. for an "Embedded Computer System"?

It's a don't care for which processor platform: DRAM Memory is part of nearly all Designs. But the functionality behind the memory is often unknown. The layout is done following the design guide. But without some background knowledge it is difficult to judge what impact required deviations from the design guide will have! The BIOS to access the memory is taken from the CPU vendor, without the possibility to look inside or even make adjustments. This makes troubleshooting quite difficult.

The memory interface is getting more and more a "Black Box"!
With every new memory generation the margins are getting smaller and the requirements for the design are increasing. Get the KnowHow that helps you to design successful products in the future.
