Script Code Debugger

 

Traditional test systems provide the user with a variety of AC test patterns to use in their testing process. If a customer wanted the capability to generate a proprietary test pattern, they would have to purchase a high-end automated test system. For most companies this is cost prohibitive and not a viable option.

TurboCATS introduces a new, revolutionary feature called "Script Code" in its new DDR 3/4 test system, the new TCIII-2667ST. In this new system, the customer can use the script programming language to create a customized test pattern. 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 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 under 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. Additionally, the customer can also create a motherboard test pattern algorithm using the "Script Code" function. The new TurboCATS III-2133ST performs the test with no-wait states in the operating system.

Utilizing the "Script Code" function gives the customer a high degree of flexibility in terms of timing bus programming for creating unique Read and Write programmingtransactions under best and worst case AC parameters scenarios. This can also be used to create a no-wait state bus transaction in the Read to Write cycle.
