13. External Memory Interface Debug Toolkit

The EMIF Toolkit lets you run your own traffic patterns, diagnose and debug calibration problems, and produce margining reports for your external memory interface.

The toolkit is compatible with UniPHY-based external memory interfaces that use the Nios II-based sequencer, with toolkit communication enabled. Toolkit communication is on by default in versions 10.1 and 11.0 of UniPHY IP; for version 11.1 and later, toolkit communication is on whenever debugging is enabled on the Diagnostics tab of the IP core interface.

The EMIF Toolkit can communicate with several different memory interfaces on the same device, but can communicate with only one memory device at a time.

Note: The EMIF Debug Toolkit does not support MAX 10 devices.
