The phase error is measured from the crosspoint of the input reference signals to the crosspoint of the output signals. For example, Pericom clock driver phase error is measured from CK and CK/ input pins to FBIN and FBIN/ pins. Therefore, all 4 probes of a typical oscilloscope are used.
A full detail explanation and product guidelines for memory modules and DDR applications can be found in our Applications section under Memory Modules.
It is proven by many real application cases that the short propagation delay is the key parameter for a high-speed DDR register. It was seen that even if a 100ps longer propagation from a register failed the DDR module, the shorter the better. In a high-speed DDR module, there is very little margin left for setup time due to the short duty cycle at high-speed, but also the RC delay from many memory chips driven by one register driver. Pericom's DDR module register and are the fastest registers in the market, and are the proven "silver bullet" of resolving DDR module timing problems seen in critical timing system at four corner test.
The reference clock DC specifications and AC timing requirements are shown in the table below. More details can be found in "PCI Express Card Electromechanical Specification Revision 1.1", Chap 2.1.3.
