How to compare read and write delay calibrations to pinpoint memory issue ?

Hi All,

 

In the document Freescale i.MX6 DRAM Port Application Guide – DDR3 we can see the sample read and write delay calibrations in section 3.1.2

 

From following write level calibration of  2 boards we can see from the red highlighted lines Board 1 has got 0x11111111 too early than Board 2. 

 

1) What can we figure from this ? If 0 represent pass values and 1 represent fail; according to user manual why some results are like 0x10111111 ?

 

2) If wider the 0 window, it represent more pass results for the ddr. Is that good or bad ?

 

3) Why it is showing at top and bottom half all 1 ? Is that mean read or write fails ? If at the very bottom result include 0 result what can we say about that byte lane ?

 

4) Can we get any failures of byte lane of the memory from this results ?

 

 

Regards,

Peter.
