About the SIMCHECK II/II se PLUS Memory
- Q. What is the SIMCHECK II
A. It combines our third generation base tester SIMCHECK II and the powerful Sync DIMMCHECK 168 Adapter to provide a
state-of-the-art solution for testing SDRAM and standard DRAM modules. It tests
all popular 168-pin SDRAM/EDO/FPM DIMM modules as well as 72 and 30 pin SIMM
modules. The built-in 133MHz test engine and the 1nS timing circuitry of the
SIMCHECK II PLUS enable you to test today's PC-100 and the new generation of
PC-133 SDRAM modules.
- Q. What is the SIMCHECK II se
PLUS? What is the difference between this and the SIMCHECK II PLUS? What about
the SIMCHECK II LT PLUS?
A. The SIMCHECK II se PLUS is a lower cost
version of the SIMCHECK II PLUS, which uses the SIMCHECK II se base tester and the
Sync DIMMCHECK 168. It tests all popular 168-pin
SDRAM/EDO/FPM DIMM modules as well as 72- pin SIMM modules. As both of these
packages include the Sync DIMMCHECK 168, the main differences involve the two
base testers. The SIMCHECK II se does not include a 30-pin test socket and some
advance firmware features of the SIMCHECK II are disabled. Please visit the
SIMCHECK II se features page
for a detailed list of these differences. The SIMCHECK II LT PLUS includes all of the advanced
features of SIMCHECK II PLUS, but without the 30-pin socket.
- Q. Can SIMCHECK II se PLUS
test PC-133 SDRAM modules like the SIMCHECK II PLUS?
A. The SIMCHECK II
se PLUS does the same testing for PC-133/100 SDRAM as the SIMCHECK II PLUS.
Most software limitations of the "SE" unit compared to the SIMCHECK II PLUS are
in the advanced setup features for older EDO/FPM devices.
- Q. How can I get a quote on
your test products?
A. Please fill out our
information request form,
specify the product of interest and state that you would like a quote. We will
respond to your request as promptly as possible.
- Q. What kind of tests are
performed by the SIMCHECK II PLUS family of products?
A. Please refer
to our SIMCHECK II page
for a description of the type of tests performed.
- Q. How can I get a replacement
copy of the manual?
A. The manual can be acquired in PDF format from
our On-Line Manual section.
- Q. What warranty do you offer
with the SIMCHECK II PLUS family?
A. New SIMCHECK II PLUS products come
with a 1-year warranty that covers internal defects of the equipment, but does
not cover the external sockets, which are subject to wear and tear; the manual
included with the equipment provides complete details concerning the
- Q. Can SIMCHECK II guarantee
that my memory modules are 100% accurate?
A. Unfortunately no. All
memory testers, including those costing $500,000 and more, cannot achieve
exhaustive tests (that is, 100% accuracy) due to the virtually unlimited
possibilities of data combinations which may be stored inside a memory device.
Therefore, while we continuously thrive to improve SIMCHECK II's test
algorithms, we cannot guarantee 100% accuracy of the test results.
- Q. What is the life expectancy
of the sockets provided with the SIMCHECK II PLUS test equipment?
The sockets are rated to about 10,000 insertion/removal cycles during their
lifetime. Excessive tear and wear may decrease the life of the socket.
- Q. Can a SIMCHECK II se
be upgraded to SIMCHECK II?
A. The SIMCHECK II se is a lower cost
version of the popular SIMCHECK II. It is equipped with the same fundamental
electronics and abilities as the SIMCHECK II and uses the same Internet
upgradeable firmware of the SIMCHECK II. To reduce its cost, we have eliminated
some capabilities as shown in the SIMCHECK II se
page. However, the SIMCHECK II se can be readily upgraded to the
SIMCHECK II level at any time.
- Q. Is the SIMCHECK II/II se
PLUS upgradeable for future memory devices?
A. In line with our track
record for the past 15 years, we are developing an upgrade path for the
SIMCHECK II family to support future memory devices. In addition to the benefit
for our customers, it is also our main interest, as we have a large installed
- Q. Where is the product
manufactured? What is INNOVENTIONS' expertise in memory testing?
SIMCHECK II PLUS is designed and manufactured by INNOVENTIONS, Inc. in Houston,
Texas, USA. In 1987, INNOVENTIONS pioneered the field of portable memory
testers with the introduction of the world's first stand alone DRAM chip
tester, the classic RAMCHECK. Since then,
we have developed several generations of advanced memory testers which were
successfully distributed world wide.
- Q. Is the SIMCHECK II Y2K
A. Yes. Please refer to our page on Y2K
compliance for a detailed explanation.
