This is an SPD programmer for programming the Eeprom found on the memory module. The programmer is used for memory module with Eeprom already mounted on board. The EEprom or SPD Chip or E2prom is the IC that is found on the right corner of a typical DIMM or SODIMM module.
Note: THIS IS A PROGRAMMER NOT A TESTER
Yes, it identify the module by reading the data off from the SPD information that is already written and stored into the Eeprom. Therefore the information displayed may be right or wrong depending on the original data that was written in.
This defer from the Eureka or SP3000 memory tester which identify the module by detecting the actual memory configuration of the module and chips used.
If you have a large number of memory modules to reprogram and do not want to tie-up the Eureka or SP3000 memory tester for the job, then the EZ SPD Programmer is a low-cost, fast option to program the SPD information. As a system integrator or component distributor, it comes in as a very handy equipment to tell you whether the information stored in the Memory module is correct or wrong and whether it is the cause of the RMA returns.
