Introduction to Script 3

The GUI allows you to set parameters and conditions related to the NAND Flash Memory (NAND) to be measured. On the other hand, with Script, almost all of these settings can be set individually, so you can change the settings at any time during the test and continue evaluation. SETCHN Parameter Hex 4 digits Set […]

About Badblock detection

Bad Block Scan A bad block in NAND Flash Memory (hereafter NAND) is a block that is not suitable for storing data. There are two types of Bad Blocks: initial Bad Blocks and later Bad Blocks. Initial bad blocks occur at about 1% of the capacity during the NAND manufacturing process. Subsequent bad blocks are […]

Introduction to Script 2

In Introduction to Script - 1, we introduced the flow from creating a Script to executing it. This time, let's create a Script that records an arbitrary character string to a specified file. String recording can be achieved with the command PRTSTR. Example Records and saves the string "Hello SigNAS3" in the specified file. I […]

Conditional STOP (CNDSTP) command

When testing NAND Falsh Memory, for example, when errors exceed a specified value, you may want to stop or switch to another process. Script do not have an IF statement function, but the CNDSTP command can be used to stop script execution or switch script files when the specified conditions are met. This makes it possible to […]

Vth Distribution measurement

NAND flash memory (NAND) technology is advancing toward multi-value recording (recording three or more values in a single memory cell) to improve storage capacity, and QLC (Quad Level Cell) is currently being put to practical use. For example, the memory method of TLC (Triple-Level Cell) is 3 bits/cell, 8 levels of threshold voltage (program is […]

Tips of Script programming

Script can be used even by programming beginners by writing simple commands and parameter combinations. Its commands are all six-character strings, allowing for intuitive associations with functions. (See Operational Guide "Example of script file") In addition, scripts created by yourself can be checked by the "Script Check Mode" function before execution. This section provides more […]
