Ultra-X continues to embody the latest technology by offering a new Mini-PCI memory validating diagnostic card, the R.S.T. Pro miniPCI. Developed mainly for the needs of the portable computer market, R.S.T. Pro Mini PCI delivers the industry's first and most advanced hardware memory diagnostics. With a board size of 44.45 mm x 59.6 mm x 4.9 mm that is routed through an onboard 124-pin card-edge connector only 3 mm in height, R.S.T. Pro Mini PCI maintains a very low profile that is attractive for space restricted mobile platforms.

R.S.T. Pro mini-PCI is a memory testing hardware/firmware solution designed for the rigorous testing needs of mobile pc memory and system manufacturers, design engineers, and service professionals. RST Pro miniPCI is a Self Booting, Operating System Independent memory diagnostic card for exercising and validating RAM in Notebooks, Tablet PCs, and other portable systems that contain a miniPCI bus slot. R.S.T. Pro mini-PCI supports Pentium through the latest series of Intel Pentium 4-Mobile, AMD Athlon Mobile 64/XP, Transmeta Crusoe and other compatible processors.

Many manufacturers of memory devices first test the devices on a traditional ATE(Automatic Test Equipment) and then assemble them into modules. Although most ATE systems are good at catching Logical and Parametric Failures, they have no reliable way of replicating Behavioral Failures. This means that it is possible for a memory module to pass through the entire test process and still fail in the field. Therefore, ATE testers do not have the best possible fault coverage.

R.S.T. Pro mini-PCI identifies memory defects that may have passed every usual manufacturing test, but which can still fail in normal use. A major advantage of RST Pro Mini-PCI, compared to stand alone testers, is the capability of testing and validating RAM within the system environment. With on-board memory, RST Pro Mini-PCI is able to test memory starting at memory address 2k. The on-board RAM allows the RST Pro Mini-PCI to test the maximum amount of memory. With over 30+ proprietary memory test algorithms, R.S.T. Pro mini-PCI supports all SIMMs, DIMMs, RIMMs,(SDRAM 66-133, DDR, DDR/2, RDRAM(RAMBus), SRAM, ECC, Parity and Non-Parity) and others.

RST Pro Mini PCI lets users test system RAM without the interference of any Memory Drivers, TSRs, O/S limitations, or Windows protected mode. R.S.T. Pro Mini PCI runs all tests in protected mode which can thoroughly test up to 64 gigabyte of memory.

Memory testing in a MiniPCI form factor makes the RST Pro Mini PCI the ultimate memory diagnostic and validation product for mobile platforms on the market today. So if you are designing memory, designing mobile systems, or building high end mobile platforms, make RST Pro Mini PCI a part of your testing and validation procedure.

Customized version of R.S.T. Pro Mini- PCI is also available for PC assemblers and OEMs.
