Slew rate failure while DDR3 read burst validation

Hi All,


Currently I'm involving DDR3 validation.

Here is the information about my setup.


Processor : MCIMX6U6AVM08AC

DDR3 Memory : MT41K128M16JT-125AITK

DDR3 Clock frequency : 400MHz

ARM Frequency : 800MHz

Chip Select used : CS0

No of chip’s DDR3 chips used : 4 no’s connected in fly by topology

Oscilloscope : 16 GHZ DPO




Probing Points on the Processor:

Clock (Channel C1) DDR_CLK_0 & DDR_CLK#_0

Data Strobe (Channel C2) DDR_SDQ0 & DDR_SDQ#0

Data 0 (Channel C3) DDR_DATA0





We have done the below methods to make slew rate (SRQdiff & SRQse) pass in DDR Read Burst,

  1. Modified the ODT Termination with different values like 30 ,40 , 60 Ohms etc
  2. Modified the Drive strength of the DDR in MR1 register for DDR3
  3. Modified the Drive strength of Processor DQS , DQ which we are probing.



PS: We have calibrated the board with DDR3 stress test tool.

We are getting failure DQS slew rate measurements.

Can any one please help us to solve this problem.
