Keysight Technologies Introduces First Comprehensive DDR5 Testing Solution

Enabling new computing and performance demands in the data center infrastructure

SANTA ROSA, Calif., January 28, 2019

Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: KEYS), a leading technology company that helps enterprises, service providers, and governments accelerate innovation to connect and secure the world, announced the industry’s first comprehensive double data rate (DDR) 5.0 test solution. Keysight’s total solution approach to DDR5 testing includes a new receiver, transmitter, and protocol test solutions. This will enable the ability 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 complete test solution includes transmit (Tx) to receiver (Rx) software along with test fixtures which provide a comprehensive parametric test suite to fully 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.

“With IoT enabling billions of internet-connected devices, data center operators must find ways to meet ever-increasing data and storage demands, while preserving the quality of service and minimizing costs,” said Dr. Joachim Peerlings, vice president and general manager of Keysight’s Networks and Data Centers. “Keysight’s DDR5 testing solution enable designers to optimize their transmitter, receiver, and channel designs for best performance and reliability at the increased data transfer rate.”

Speeding Up Large-Scale EM Simulation of ICs Without Compromising Accuracy

Sponsored by Cadence Design Systems

With growing on-chip RF content, electromagnetic (EM) simulation of passives is critical — from selecting the right RF design candidates to detecting parasitic coupling. Being on-chip, accurate EM analysis requires a tie in to the process technology with process design kits (PDKs) and foundry-certified EM simulation technology. Anything short of that could compromise the RFIC’s functionality. Learn how to get the highest-in-class accuracy and 10X faster analysis.

UWB: Because Location Matters

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Qorvo

While technologies like GPS, WiFi, and Bluetooth all offer various types of location services, none of them are well-suited to providing accurate, indoor/outdoor, low-power, real-time, 3D location data for edge and endpoint devices. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Mickael Viot from Qorvo about ultra-wideband (UWB) technology, and how it can revolutionize a wide range of applications.
