The PHY logic contains state logic for initializing the SDRAM memory after power-up and performs timing training of the read and write data paths to account for system static and dynamic delays. Successful completion of this calibration process is denoted by the assertion of phy_init_done. When phy_init_done does not assert, there are various design aspects that must be analyzed. This section of the MIG Design Assistant focuses on the proper debug process for root causing calibration failures (phy_init_done does not assert).
