My guess is: There is DDR memory as part of that system. And the functionality behind the memory is often not completely understood. The layout is done following the design guide. The memory access settings are taken from the CPU vendors default values.
Without some background know-how, it is difficult to judge the impact of even small deviations from the design guide.
This makes troubleshooting quite difficult. The memory interface is getting more and more a „Black Box“! With every new memory generation, the margins are getting smaller and the requirements for the design are increasing.
If this sounds like what you experience, you need the know-how for designing successful products in the future now. That is exactly what this course can give you.
