Keysight Technologies, Inc. Keysight Technologies, Inc. announced the first comprehensive double data rate (DDR) 5.0 test solution. The DDR5 testing system includes a new receiver, transmitter, and protocol test solutions. It is designed to perform all test requirements in the DDR5 design specification.

Each new generation of DDR synchronous dynamic random-access memory (SDRAM) provides increased data transfer speeds, a reduced footprint, and improved power efficiency. As the speed of DDR technology increases, engineers face new design and validation challenges. Design error margins decrease, and signal integrity becomes challenging to maintain.

The test solution includes transmit (Tx) to receiver (Rx) software along with test fixtures that provide a parametric test suite to test and characterize DDR5 designs. The new receiver and transmitter test solution also includes high performance M8040A 64 Gbaud High-performance BERT and Infiniium UXR-Series Real-Time Oscilloscope hardware with the lowest noise and jitter floor to allow the most accurate measurement with highest margins.
