The RAMCHECK LX base is compatible with all existing RAMCHECK adapters, allowing current RAMCHECK users to take full advantage of the LX's features and capabilities with no hassles. Just plug in your existing adapter and the RAMCHECK LX is ready to use.

RAMCHECK LX requires no setup to use. Plug in the adapter (DDR2, 168-pin SDRAM, etc.,) turn the RAMCHECK LX on, insert a memory module into the test socket and then press the start button.

As you can see, RAMCHECK LX is modular and very user friendly. But don't let RAMCHECK LX's small size fool you! The RAMCHECK LX memory tester is loaded with state-of-the-art electronic components. In fact, RAMCHECK LX has features commonly found in testers costing $50,000 or more!
Functions Image Specifications
Start-up Start-up Screen Shot RAMCHECK LX DDR2/DDR1 features a large vivid high-contrast display measuring 2.7" x 1.43" (69mm x 36.5mm). Easily viewable at an angle, from 3-4 feet away. Seen here is the startup screen once the RAMCHECK LX DDR2/DDR1 is turned on.
Basic Test Screen Shot Basic Test screen shows the size, the speed, the voltage, the test pattern, the module's bank and the CAS Latency. This example shows testing at 667MHz with an automatic setting of CAS Latency to the default value of CL=4 for this frequency.
Test Results Screen Shot Successful test phases conclude with a clear 'Pass' message and with distinguishing sound tones. Important parameters are shown in this screen, followed by a detailed test results summary screen.
Test Summary Screen Shot Test results summary screens provide a wealth of information after each test phase. All summary screens are also added to the Test Log.
Test Log Screen Shot Test Log collects and retains all intermediary test results while the memory devices undergo all of the test phases. The Test Log remains until a new test is initiated. The Test Log may be uploaded to a PC for printing via the USB interface. You can also save the file.
Test Setup
Advanced Test Setup Screen Shot The RAMCHECK LX provide advanced setup features. Certain timing parameters may be selected graphically as shown here.
SPD Editor SPD Editor Screen Shot The device's SPD can be conveniently viewed, edited and programmed on the RAMCHECK LX. You can also use our advanced SPD features in the PC RAMCHECK LX communications program.
