What We Offer?

Solutions for your memory testing business

TurboCATS is pioneering a high performing None-Cable HiFix unit integrated with our high performance TCIII-3200STDRIC / TCIII-3200STLPIC NANDFlash IC test system. The tester is connected to the IC socket board via TurboCATS' None-Cable HiFix unit, which is cableless to maximize the performance of the signal transmission. This ensures that the test system is easy to maintain since the user no longer needs to go through hundred of cable wires within the unit.

Customizable Options:


  • DDR4 - supports speeds up to 3200Mbps
  • DDR3 - supports speeds up to 2133Mbps


  • LPDDR4 - supports speeds up to 3200Mbps
  • LPDDR3 - supports speeds up to 1833Mbps

What is None-Cable HiFix?

Speed, signal integrity and costs are the challenges for building a HiFix unit integrated to the automated handler system. The conventional HiFix comes with a large bundle of long cable wires to connect with the HiFix and IC socket boards. It causes signal degradation and timing jitter due to the impedance mismatching, conductor losses, radiation effects, etc. It is also difficult to maintain and repair any problems that need to go through a large bundle of cable wires.

Powerful Integration Tool

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 Idd's
  • Hot-Temperature Failure: System high temperature environment

GUI Failure Analysis

Graphical Identification of DQ's

Represents the failed DQ pins locations, graphically. The software uses a graphical picture 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).

Address / Data Logging

Error logging can analyze failures by using address and data information.

Bit Failure Mapping

A tool that helps the user to find and display the failed DQ bits in the RAM. The corresponding row and column addresses the failed DQ bits, which will be spotted and displayed for the user.

Address Scramble

Address Scramble allows users to redefine an address line logic to the address.

Data Scramble

Data Scramble is based on the input addresses which determines write data or /data.

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).

Script Code Function (optional)

Script Code Debugger

The customer can use a script programming language to create a customized test pattern. It also supports up to maximum 2048 data patterns. The Script Code function also serves as a powerful compiler/debug tool. It contains a built-in compiler and debugger for Script Code programming that allows the user to monitor the timing waveform of the programming algorithm along with the timing bus transactions. This is all accomplished under the Signal Tap tool.

Multi-Site Networking

Solutions for your connected testing

The TCIII-3200STDRIC / TCIII-3200STLPIC multi-site units can be networked so the user can test up to 512 ICs using one PC to control the entire operation. This gives the customer greater flexibility in terms of increasing testing capacity on as need basis. Cost are minimized since there will be no need for additional man labor to handle the increased capacity.
