Most
technologies used in the electronics industries are controlled by standards
bodies like JEDEC. These standards bodies provide the framework for the design,
layout and test of the technology being specified. DDR memory is no exception
except for the area of test, specifically compliance test. While USB,
DisplayPort and PCIExpress enjoy a rigorous branded compliance test program DDR
Memory does not. This paper will provide an outline and specific tests that all
DDR4 memory implementations should pass in order to ensure integrity in the
applications that rely on DDR4 Memory.
