Temperature dependent on DDR memory calibration ? Reason for kernel panic when the imx6q system get heat-up ?

Hi All,

 

I have done DDR memory calibration for my imx6q custom hardware design in ambient temperature and got proper and reliable read,write,dqs gating values for DDR memory. And I updated u-boot configs according to those values. 

 

But when the system get heat up; as an example when the die temperature of the imx6 exceed 55C the system shows kernel panic. It is difficult to identify the reason using the errors pop-up in kernel panic using program counter. (May be this is not a reason in processor because imx6 can work up to 85C without de-clocking) 

 

  1. Do we need to do DDR memory calibration in different temperatures before do the updates in u-boot ? Any dependency on memory calibration on temperature ?
  2. How can we get temperature profile using few thermocouples which were placed on different areas of DDR memory chips, imx6 processor and etc by using imx6q libraries ?

 

Regards,

Peter.
