RAMCHECK LX Online Manual and Addenda Page

Since RAMCHECK LX is so simple to operate, most of our customers won't need to reference a detailed manual. However, we realize that some customers want to know more about RAMCHECK LX's numerous advanced features. Much of the technical information we have supplied over the years for the RAMCHECK tester also applies directly to the RAMCHECK LX, particularly in regards to test flow and setup. However, since the RAMCHECK LX is a significant advancement over the older RAMCHECK design, there are some important differences.

The RAMCHECK LX manual is available online. We have also provided links to expanded support materials should you need more in-depth information. Please note that you'll need to have Adobe Acrobat Reader installed on your computer in order to read these files. Visit the Web site to download a free copy of Acrobat Reader if you do not have it.

RAMCHECK LX MAIN MANUAL (file size 2.5MB, PDF file). This main manual will provide you with most of the information you will need to set up and use RAMCHECK LX's many features. A printed version of this file is included with the RAMCHECK LX product.  Use this manual and the Manual Addenda below when testing modern DDR3/2/1 devices.
