Teledyne LeCroy has unveiled the DDR Debug Toolkit that promises to offer a complete physical layer analysis of DDR2/3/4 and LPDDR2/3 signals. While most oscilloscope-based DDR physical layer test tools are targeted exclusively at JEDEC compliance testing, the DDR Debug Toolkit provides test, debug and analysis tools for the entire DDR design cycle, detailed the company.

According to Teledyne, the toolkit includes various time saving industry firsts to simplify DDR testing. With a push of a button, read and write bursts can be separated and eye diagrams for each can be displayed in real time, quickly providing unique insight to system performance. Users can also effortlessly identify the root cause of problems with jitter analysis specifically designed for the bursted DDR signals that conventional serial data tools cannot analyse, the company added. A variety of DDR-specific measurement parameters are built in to the toolkit enabling an easy quantitative analysis of system performance. All this DDR analysis can be performed simultaneously over four different measurement scenarios allowing for a deep understanding of system performance, dramatically improving DDR testing efficiency, and providing faster results, indicated Teledyne.

The ability to display up to ten eye diagrams simultaneously provides a high-level view of system performance during system bring-up. The multi-measurement scenario analysis capability easily lends itself to optimisation and tuning of system and device performance, while the built-in measurements provide characterisation benchmarks for pre-compliance testing. For those testing to the JEDEC standards, the analysis tools can be leveraged to perform margin testing and to troubleshoot any failures that arise during compliance testing. Additionally, the DDR Debug Toolkit provides an alternative to automated DDR compliance test packages for times when full compliance testing is not required.

Teledyne LeCroy offers a complete range of DDR test solutions covering physical layer validation and debug to protocol test. QualiPHY automated compliance framework provides automated physical layer testing for DDR2/3/4 and LPDDR2/3 and the DDR Debug Toolkit offers insight at every step in the DDR design cycle. The Kibra line of protocol analysers is the first standalone protocol analyser for DDR supporting both DDR3 and DDR4. It offers compliance analysis as well as full protocol and performance analysis.

Immediately available, the DDR Debug Toolkit starts at $3,000 and is available for WaveRunner 6 Zi, WavePro 7Zi-A, WaveMaster 8Zi-A, LabMaster 9Zi-A and LabMaster 10 Zi platforms.
