Verigy tests GDDR5 at Korean memory producer

June 15, 2011 – Marketwire — Verigy (NASDAQ:VRGY), semiconductor test equipment provider, won orders for its V93000 HSM platform to perform volume test on GDDR5 memory at a large Korean customer.

The Verigy V93000 HSM6800 delivers at-speed, high-throughput, automated memory test on ultra-fast GDDR5 graphics memory devices (4Gbps+ per-pin operation). The Korean memory maker selected the V93000 HSM6800 for its test speed headroom up to 8Gbps, along with high yield and throughput.

GDDR5 graphics DRAM handles bandwidth-heavy graphics applications such as graphic cards, game consoles, and high-end consumer media products. The Verigy V93000 addresses the specific features of new-generation GDDR5: The memory architecture uses data bus inversion (DBI) and address bus inversion (ABI) to improve signal integrity and lower power consumption. An error detection and correction mechanism, via a cyclic redundancy check (CRC) algorithm, detects data transmission errors on the high-speed signal lines to maintain system stability. GDDR5 provides two-to-three times the memory bandwidth of its predecessor, GDDR3, with data rates up to 8Gbps.

Verigy has sold V93000 systems in the past to Freescale, Princeton Technology, OKI
