INNOVENTIONS Launches PC333 DDR Memory Tester

Low-cost device tests PC333/PC266/PC200 DDR and other memory types

Houston, Texas - January 22, 2003 - INNOVENTIONS, Inc., the leading manufacturer of standalone, portable computer memory testers, is now shipping an improved version of their RAMCHECK Plus memory tester for PC333/PC266/PC200 DDR (also known as PC2700/2100/1600) modules and all common 168-pin SDRAM memory modules. An inexpensive upgrade for testing PC333 modules is also available for current RAMCHECK Plus users.

"Industry trends show that there has been a much stronger demand for DDR memory than anticipated. Most new personal computers currently sold now use DDR memory, rather than the old 168-pin SDRAM," said David Y. Feinstein, President of INNOVENTIONS. "PC333, the new, high-frequency DDR memory, is increasingly popular. With our latest engineering upgrades to RAMCHECK Plus, we now offer an affordable tool for testing all common DDR memory."

Noting that comparable testers cost upwards of $10,000 and more, Feinstein added, "Manufacturers, resellers, repair shops, government agencies and schools that handle large numbers of memory modules need portable test equipment. Our RAMCHECK Plus tester makes memory testing affordable for even small organizations."

RAMCHECK Plus tests PC333, PC266, and PC200 DDR modules, including Registered and Unbuffered DIMMs, as well as PC166/150/133/100 SDRAM, EDO and Fast Page Mode modules. With optional adapters, it also tests SO-DIMM laptop PC memory, older SIMMs and chips. RAMCHECK Plus requires no special setup and is simple to operate due to its intuitive user interface and rugged, easy-to-use test sockets.

During each test, the memory module's size, structure and type are automatically detected. RAMCHECK Plus quickly spots bad memory chips and alerts the user with a warning tone and visual signal. The stand-alone RAMCHECK Plus tester can be upgraded with free firmware upgrades via the Internet, and includes a PC communications software package to log and print test results.

The RAMCHECK Plus retails for $3125 and is available for immediate delivery. Current RAMCHECK or RAMCHECK Plus users can upgrade their tester to PC333 for just $149. For more information, call INNOVENTIONS at 281-879-6226 or visit
