Advantest has uncloaked a test platform aimed at various DDR4 memory products, used mostly in internet-enabled mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets. The T5503HS, the company added, is intended to handle the high data rates of the said devices.

The T5503HS reaches test data rates of up to 4.5Gb/s, which should be enough to handle the maximum operating frequencies of today's most advanced double-data rate SDRAM memory chips, specified for 4,266Gb/s, noted the firm. The T5503HS also generates CRC codes and parity checks, simplifying the creation of test programs and reducing the customer's workload.


For fast and economical production testing, the platform handles up to 512 memory chips in parallel. Installed T5593 testers can be upgraded on site, which gives users the option to extend the usage of their installed base. In addition, a real-time, source-synchronous function increases yield and throughput. With its speed edge over software-based solutions, a built-in hardware-based timing-training function further increases the throughput. Functions such as individual level settings, I/O dead-band cancelling and data bus inversion increase the product's versatility and enable users to perform tests on most high-speed memories, detailed the firm.
