RAMCHECK UPGRADE TO SUPPORT THE NEW DDR PRO ADAPTER
The RAMCHECK DDR PRO adapter (p/n INN-8668-9) supports DDR testing at 466MHz. Your RAMCHECK base tester must meet the following requirements to support the DDR PRO adapter.If you own the older DDR adapter (p/n INN-8668-6) and wish to upgrade to the new DDR PRO, you should order the DDR Pro Conversion that includes a free RAMCHECK base tester upgrade.
RAMCHECK Base Tester Requirements for DDR PRO 466MHz Support
If your RAMCHECK base tester was purchased prior to 2004, you are likely to need an upgrade. This is determined based on several variables in the RAMCHECK Product Information screen, which is described in detail in the RAMCHECK Calibration & Hardware Upgrade page. Please remember to contact us prior to shipment in order to obtain an RMA number as we cannot accept packages without valid RMA numbers.
Determining the Need for the Upgrade
Please verify that you have the most recent (free) firmware upgrade in your RAMCHECK memory tester. In order to test at 466MHz, your RAMCHECK PLUS PRO (with the DDR PRO Adapter installed) should show the following values in the Product Information:
If you plan to purchase the DDR PRO adapter, only the first item, the PAL CODE information is relevant. Your RAMCHECK base tester should be fine if it meets the PAL CODE information.
The first code in each of the table's first two rows is the more recent value in our production. Current production units use PAL Code="021501" and Adapter Code="A0_03". If the PAL Code is "021201" an immediate RAMCHECK upgrade is needed to support the DDR PRO. However, if your Adapter Code is just "A0_02" or "A0_01", and the PAL Code is "021301" or higher, the adapter will be still able to run at 466MHz with most 466MHz modules. An upgrade from this level can be delayed to the next periodic calibration and upgrade process of your entire RAMCHECK PLUS PRO system.
Using the above information, our Tech Support department can determine if you need to upgrade your RAMCHECK or the DDR PRO adapter and determine the fixed cost of the service. We currently offer free RAMCHECK base tester upgrade (excluding shipping charges) for customers who purchase the new DDR PRO adapter.
Ordering the Upgrade Procedure
Please contact our Tech Support department for pricing and to schedule this service. The service part number for ordering is INN-8668-U1.
Once in the factory, our technicians will upgrade the required components and install new components. The unit will go through a 24-hour burn-in process. This process involves the same final testing that we perform on every new production unit.
