FBDIMM and AMB Validation Process

The objective of the Intel® validation program is to verify compliance to the industry specification and the Intel specification addendum for AMB and FBDIMM. This program also shows functionality of modules and its components in Intel® reference systems, so as to provide a guideline for memory compatibility with Intel® chipsets. This validation will be performed by an approved lab on a sample of modules and is intended to demonstrate supplier design and manufacturing capability. The validation process uses standardized procedures and methodologies documented in the Intel validation specification for AMB and FBDIMM. The procedure is not intended to replace the OEMs' qualification process.
