DDR3 LRDIMM Memory Tester Available

Provides fast, affordable testing of expensive LRDIMM modules

Houston, Texas – June 7, 2016 – INNOVENTIONS, Inc., the leading manufacturer of portable computer memory testers, announced today that its RAMCHECK LX DDR3 memory tester has been updated for testing and identifying LRDIMM (Load-Reduced) DDR3 memory modules found in high-end servers.

“DDR3 LRDIMM modules are primarily used on memory-dense servers, and they are quite expensive,” said Dr. David Y. Feinstein, President of INNOVENTIONS. “This update to our RAMCHECK LX DDR3 tester gives memory dealers and data center techs a powerful tool to spot and identify defective LRDIMMs. Considering that these LRDIMM modules cost hundreds, if not thousands of dollars, the RAMCHECK LX DDR3 tester can pay for itself pretty quickly.”

The RAMCHECK LX DDR3 tester (part number INN-8686-DDR3) tests and identifies JEDEC-compliant DDR3 RDIMM, UDIMM, LRDIMM, and SO-DIMMs. No special setup is required. The DDR3 Series DIMM adapter included with the tester features a rugged, easy-to-use Zero Insertion Force test socket. Existing RAMCHECK LX customers can add DDR3 LRDIMM testing to their systems at no charge just by updating the firmware over the internet.

Because LRDIMM modules use a memory buffer, the test flow for these modules differs from the standard RAMCHECK LX test flow. Currently, DDR3 LRDIMM modules are tested by a modified (and significantly longer) Basic Test. First, the memory module’s size, structure, and type are automatically detected. Then RAMCHECK LX DDR3 quickly spots bad memory chips and alerts the user with a warning tone and visual signal via LED and a large, vivid LCD panel. Compared with testing on a motherboard, which can take many hours or even days, the Basic Test for a 32 GB DDR3 LRDIMM module  may be completed in about 13 minutes. After the Basic Test ends, the test results screens remain on the tester's display.
