Agilent Technologies Introduces Industry's First eMMC Compliance Test Application

 

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Dec. 17, 2012

Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today introduced the industry's first eMMC (embedded multimedia card) compliance test application for embedded storage solutions. The Agilent N6465A eMMC test application helps memory design engineers validate and debug eMMC NAND flash memory cards faster by automating the execution of a series of parametric tests, including electrical and timing measurements, on Agilent Infiniium 9000, 90000A, 90000 X- and 90000 Q-Series oscilloscopes.

The eMMC NAND flash memory technology can operate at a maximum clock rate of 200 MHz in high-speed mode and provides ultrafast memory for smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices. The eMMC standard is widely used.

The Agilent N6465A eMMC compliance test application helps engineers test, debug and characterize physical-layer properties of eMMC memory to ensure compliance with the JEDEC JESD84-B451 specification. The application automatically sets up the oscilloscope to trigger the right signal to run each test and generates an HTML report at the end of the test. The report compares the results with the specified test limit and indicates how closely the device passes or fails each test.

"Our new eMMC compliance test software allows engineers to achieve conformance in the fastest and most efficient manner," said Jay Alexander, vice president and general manager of Agilent's Oscilloscope Products Division. "The Infiniium 9000 Series oscilloscopes complement the eMMC compliance test software in providing an affordable solution with the required bandwidth and performance to trigger on the eMMC signals for full parametric testing."

U.S. Pricing, Availability and Additional Information

The Agilent N6465A eMMC compliance test application is available now for $4,000. Additional information about Agilent's eMMC compliance test solution is available at www.agilent.com/find/N6465A. Product images are available at www.agilent.com/find/N6465A_images.
