GUI Failure Analysis

Shmoo Plot

A two-dimensional diagram that shows the status of the DQ bits of Memory ICs varying over a range of the user's selected parameters (timing and input voltage level).

Graphical Identification of Failed DQs' Locations

Represents the failed DQ pins' locations graphically.
The software uses a graphical display to show the test failures at the hardware level: If the IC fails during the test, there would be indications (displayed in RED) marking the failed pin(s) and signal(s).

Bit Failure Mapping

A tool that helps the user find the failed DQ bits in the RAM by spotting and displaying the corresponding row and column addresses.

Combination of Failures

  • Functional Failure: Cell stuck-at, coupling, neighborhood sensitivity and software error faults
  • Parametric Failure: (AC) Speed timing vs. Vdd threshold, (DC) Leakage and Idds
  • High Temperature Failure: System in high temperature environment

Script Code Function (optional)

Script Code Debugger

TurboCATS designs a powerful feature called the Script Code in the new DDR3/ DDR4, TCIII-2667IC test system. In the new system, the user can use the script programming language to create a customized test pattern. It can support up to a maximum of 2048 data patterns (optional). Once the pattern is created, the Script Code pattern generator/ compiler is used to compile the code and then generate the new test pattern.

The Script Code function also serves as a powerful compiler/ debug tool. It contains a built-in compiler and debugger for the Script Code programming which allows the customer to monitor the timing waveform of the programming algorithm as well as the timing bus transactions. This is all accomplished with the Signal Tap tool.

The new pattern is then imported into the test list and gives the customer a customized pattern with AC (tSU, tWD, tSAC, tRCD, tCL, tAL, tWR, tRP, tRC, tREF, tRFC, etc.) and DC (Vdd, Vref) parameters for testing their product. In addition to the above, the customer can also create a motherboard test pattern algorithm using the Script Code function.

Multi-Site Networking

Better technology is better business

The TCIII-2667IC multi-site system can be networked so the user can test up to 512 devices using one PC to control the entire operation. This gives the customer greater flexibility in terms of increasing testing capacity on an as-needed basis.
