Some of the errors detected include: 8b/10b errors, such as invalid symbols and incorrect running disparity; CRC errors; idle data errors; and EDB (End-of-Packet Bad) errors. They also provide a detailed display of split transactions, correlating requests transmitted from one PCI Express endpoint with completions received from the endpoint at the opposite end of the link.

Teledyne LeCroy is well known for its technical leadership. Customers have come to depend on Teledyne LeCroy supporting protocols while they are early in development when these tools are essential.

Exercisers

The PCI Express exercisers can generate PCI Express transactions, observe behavior, and perform both stress testing and compliance testing. The Summit Z416 supports the PCIe 4.0 Specification ("Gen4"). The Summit Z416 Exerciser supports up to x16 lane widths at data rates of 16 GT/s. As complete solutions, the Summit family of products give you the unique ability to record (capture) live traffic, modify the traffic, and then playback the exact data stream, or "script," using the exerciser.

Compliance

Teledyne LeCroy offers an integrated and automated compliance testing system, including Summit Z416 and Test Platform, approved by the PCI-SIG® as a standard tool for compliance testing for developers working with both the PCIe 3.0 and 4.0 specifications. In addition, the Summit Z3-16 exerciser is the only approved tool to run the UNH-IOLs NVM Express Conformance Tests. These tests are required for the NVM Express Integrators test.

 

 

The Summit M5x Protocol Analyzer /Jammer is the computer industry’s first platform to not only support today’s PCIe 4.0 specification but is designed to also support both the next generation PCIe 5.0 (32GT/s) specification as well as the Gen-Z Specification. The Summit M5x introduces new error injection (jamming) capabilities for PCIe and Gen-Z testing in addition to high speed recording and analyzing. The Summit M5x protocol analyzer/jammer features the PCIe industry’s first PCIe 4.0 "RAS" Error and Gen-Z jamming test capability.

The Summit M5x platform is PCIe 5.0 ready and supports up to 32 GT/s transmission speeds. Summit M5x users who are using PCIe 4.0 today can upgrade to PCIe 5.0 by purchasing a software license upgrade along with any necessary probes that they may need for their environment. Monitoring and analyzing other high-speed protocols that leverage the PCIe electrical specification but using their own protocols such as Gen-Z and CCIX are also supported on this analysis platform.

Summit M5x introduces a new probing methodology that eliminates the need of a traditional “interposer” type probe to interface with systems under test. This is ideal for server-based systems that utilize horizonal insertion. The Summit M5x supports PCIe 4.0, Gen-Z and CCIX at up to x16 link widths and PCIe 5.0 link widths up to x8. The Summit M5x can be configured with up to 128GB of trace memory, which is advantageous for users requiring long protocol recordings. The protocol analyzer can be controlled through USB or remotely through 1000baseT Ethernet. The Summit M5x protocol analyzer can also be synchronized with other high-speed protocol analyzers from Teledyne LeCroy using CrossSync, functionality that enables time‐aligned packet traffic as well as cross triggering from multiple high‐speed serial busses as may be needed to design, debug and validate across bridges.

Up to 32GT/s Speeds

With advanced features such as support for PCI Express 4.0/5.0 and Gen-Z specifications, data rates of 2.5, 5, 8, 16 and 32GT/s, lane widths from x1 to x16, and a full 128 GB of trace memory, the Summit M5x Protocol Analyzer provides unmatched capability and flexibility for developers and users of advanced PCI Express and Gen-Z products. The Summit M5x is by far the most advanced and sophisticated Protocol Analyzer available in the market today.

PCIe 4.0 Jamming

The Summit M5x protocol analyzer/jammer features the PCIe industry’s first PCIe 4.0 jamming test capability. The Summit M5x can modify, replace, insert or delete traffic between a PCIe root complex and endpoint to verify adherence to design specifications and identify potential errors in protocol behavior. Unlike PCIe jammers of past years, jamming the transmission between the root complex and endpoint is done within normal operating PCIe specifications instead of breaking the specification by creating out of spec latencies and retransmissions. The Summit M5x also introduces for the first time NVMe and NVMe-MI protocol jamming as well. The analyzer and jammer combination features on the Summit M5x make this a powerful testing tool for PCIe and NVMe validation and development labs.

PCIe 4.0 "RAS" Error Injection Testing

With its PCIe 4.0 compliant jamming capability, the Summit M5x delivers test functionality sought after by engineers trying to ensure improved system robustness. Moreover, the Summit M5x quickly and easily injects PCIe RAS (Reliability, Accessibility and Serviceability) errors including Correctable, Uncorrectable and Fatal errors between a standard Root Complex and Endpoint in adherence to design specifications to identify potential error handling problems. The RAS testing functionality supports PCIe links up to 16 lanes at 16GT/s and is run using the LinkExpert software to fully automate the testing and validation of system level error handling and reporting mechanisms.

Gen-Z Jamming

The Summit M5x is the industry’s first Gen-Z capable Protocol Analyzer and Jammer. the Summit M5x can inject errors and manipulate traffic between a Gen-Z requester and responder to verify adherence to design specifications and identify potential errors in protocol behavior.

Powerful Views

As with other Teledyne LeCroy Protocol analyzers, the Summit M5x leverages the intuitive and powerful CATC Trace analysis software system, embedding a deep understanding of the protocol hierarchy and intricacies. The colorful, intuitive and easy to use graphical display allows you to quickly capture and validate PCI Express and Gen-Z product designs.

Bit Tracer™

The raw recording mode, BitTracer, allows bytes to be recorded as they come across the link, allowing debugging of PHY layer problems and combining the features of a logic analyzer format with a protocol analyzer format.

Lan Support

The Summit M5x also supports Ethernet LAN port as a standard feature. By connecting over a LAN, engineers can operate the system remotely (e.g., install the client software on their desktop systems, and control an analyzer operating in a remote lab). Also, multiple engineers working collaboratively can time-share use of a single analyzer, reducing the need for an additional analyzer for each engineer, and increasing the cost effectiveness of the product.

Debug in any PCIe environment

By leveraging years of experience in protocol analysis tools for emerging markets, Teledyne LeCroy's protocol analyzers blend sophisticated functionality with practical features to speed the development of IP cores, semiconductors, storage, graphics, servers, workstations, bridges, and switches.
