VC 709 Targeted Reference Design message "DDR3 not calibrated"

Jump to solution

When testing for the first time my Virtex 7 board (vc 709) with the Targeted Reference Design provided in Xilinx documentation, I get a message from the provided application saying my DDR3 C0 is not calibrated, making it impossible to continue such test.

The board did not pass the BIST DDR3 C0 (test 7) test either; It gets stuck with the message "writing..."

Is there a way to fix this problem, or should I just return my board?.

By the way, I purchased four VC709 boards and only one of the showed the problem described above, so I assume there is a problem with the specific board.

 

Thank you.

Hi @cmm0309 ,

Please share the power GOOD LED Snapshot of the board.

 

Please go through this VC709 Debug Checklist, and confirm me till Step 4 you are fine? If you are failing in any step specify in detail. 

In BIST Test only DDR3 test is failing or any other test is failing?

 

If you are fine till Step 4 of VC709 Debug checklist and only DDR3 is failing in BIST test, Please go ahead and file a Devsys RMA case for Xilinx, to get your board replaced.

Hello,

Thank you very much for your reply.

Please find below my Led snapshot.

I went through the debug checklist, and everything up to step 4 seems fine.

The BIST test only fails with one of the DDR3s, all the others pass with no problem.

 

Regards,
