VTOS DDR™ Support for MPC85xx Power Architecture® Designs
We released a new VTOS DDR™ package supporting board designs using MPC85xx processors from Freescale.
VTOS DDR provides everything you need to configure, verify, and calibrate the DDR2/3 memory of your board designs. VTOS DDR is a standalone DDR verification tool that also integrates with Kozio’s vAccess for automated testing.
This release also includes new commands for performing queued write operations to speed up performance of DDR configuration.
Also included with the release is a new application note – VTOS Tools MPC85xx Addendum. This addendum describes the VTOS Tools features specific to the MPC85xx processor family, manufactured by Freescale.
VTOS DDR is an excellent solution for verifying new board designs. No other boot loader or OS software is required. The VTOS DDR GUI steps you through board and memory configuration, but also allows you to automatically determine optimal settings for your board design. Finding optimal settings takes about 30 minutes.
In addition, VTOS DDR provides comprehensive testing of every memory cell and every memory bit, all in seconds. The total time varies based on total memory available.
When ready, VTOS DDR can be used with vAccess for automated testing. Run DDR testing in a temperature chamber, during regression testing, or manufacturing tests.
VTOS DDR provides a valuable tool for verifying board level changes, qualifying second-source memory parts, and is fast enough to be used in production test to test every single bit of memory.
VTOS DDR will be updated regularly to support new processor architectures. Please let us know which processor you want supported next.
