DRAM Know How - OPEN THE BLACK BOX OF MEMORY

2-Day Advanced Class by Mr. Hermann Ruckerbauer of EyeKnowHow, Germany

We are bringing the expert to your doorstep!

Polar Instruments (Asia Pacific) Pte Ltd has partnered with Mr. Hermann Ruckerbauer, leading trainer and Signal Integrity technologist for high speed measurement and simulation especially on DRAM related interfaces.

A HIGHLY SPECIALISED CLASS

Training from Eye Know How teaches engineers how to get your job done especially on memory bus implementation. Regardless if pre‐design simulation with timing budget calculations are needed, post layout analysis with correlation measurements are necessary, or failure analysis are required. Our classes illustrate how analysis and measurement tools can be used to quickly and efficiently solve signal integrity problems.
The design methodology we teach emphasizes eliminating problems by identifying their root cause and how to debug them fast. Analysis techniques are applied to balance the tradeoff between cost & performance and power. Risk can be reduced by leveraging simulation tools and measurement using TDR and VNA instruments. We help customers develop appropriate guidelines through the Best‐Known‐Method for high speed digital design.

ABOUT THE CLASS

DRAM memory is part of nearly all Designs. But the functionality behind the memory is often unknown. The layout is done following the design guide. But without some background KnowHow it is difficult to judge what impact required deviations from the design guide will have!. The BIOS to access the memory is taken from the CPU vendor, without the possibility to look inside or even make adjustments. This makes troubleshooting quite difficult. The memory interface is getting more and more like a Black Box!. With every new memory generation the margins are getting smaller and the requirements for the design are increasing. Get the KnowHow for designing successful products in the future. This two day advanced class shows you the pathway for successful design.
