Developers can use Teledyne LeCroy's PCI Express Protocol solutions to easily capture and decode PCI Express Transaction Layer Packets (TLPs), Data Link Layer Packets (DLLPs), and low-level link traffic, including Training Sequences and Skip Ordered-sets. 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 Z516 supports the PCIe 5.0 Specification ("Gen5"). The Summit Z516 Exerciser supports up to x16 lane widths at data rates of 32 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 T516 PCI Express (PCIe) 5.0 and Compute Express Link (CXL) Protocol Analyzer, the first protocol analyzer to capture x16 link width at 32GT/s for capturing, recording, and analysis of high performance devices and systems. Many PCIe 5.0 product designs are already in progress using the PCIe 5.0 specification and CXL Specifications. Companies are currently working with the Teledyne LeCroy Summit Z516 protocol exerciser for PCIe 5.0 and CXL at the deployment of PCIe 5.0 for host system emulation with their testing needs. This combination of a protocol analyzer and exerciser make Teledyne LeCroy the only supplier of protocol test and development tools for PCIe Gen 5 and CXL. High speed interposers that provide protocol analyzer connectivity to CEM or other form factor sockets on system boards will still continue to be the principle way to capture PCIe and CXL traffic into the protocol analyzer.

PCIe 5.0 Technology

PCIe 5.0 technology achieves twice the effective data throughput rate of the PCIe 4.0 standard through a combination of increased data bit rate (16 GT/s moving to 32 GT/s), PCIe 5.0 uses similar encoding as PCIe 4.0 that have proven reliable for data transmission.

PCIe 5.0 Speeds

With advanced features such as support for PCI Express Spec 5.0, data rates of 2.5, 5, 8, 16 and 32GT/s, lane widths from x1 to x16, and a full 256 GB of trace memory, the Summit T516 Protocol Analyzer provides unmatched capability and flexibility for developers and users of advanced PCI Express products. The Summit T516 is by far the most advanced and sophisticated PCI Express Analyzer available in the market today.

Powerful Views

As with other Teledyne LeCroy PCI Express analyzers, the Summit T516 leverages the intuitive and powerful CATC Trace analysis software system, embedding a deep understanding of the PCI Express protocol hierarchy and intricacies. The colorful, intuitive and easy to use graphical display allows you to quickly capture and validate PCI Express product designs. All Teledyne LeCroy PCI Express protocol analyzers employ high-impedance, non-intrusive probing technology, thereby allowing fully unaltered data pass-through. The application display is highly configurable and can be modified to most users' debugging styles. Many features are available including a hierarchical display, protocol traffic summaries, detailed error reports, timing calculators, bus utilization graphs, and the ability to create userdefined test reports allowing developers to troubleshoot intricate problems and finish their projects on time. PCIe storage decodes such as NVMe, SATA Express (AHCI and ATA), SCSI Express (PQI and SOP), TCG (Trusted Computing Group), Precision Time Management (PTM) and virtualization decode such as Single and Multi-Root I/O Virtualization (SRIOV and MRIOV) as well as Address Translation Services (ATS) are available to broaden its capabilities to many different industry segments.

Lane Swizzling

In addition to a full suite of advanced hardware and software features, the Summit T516 provides user-convenience and analysis features, such as support for "lane swizzling" which allows a board developer to lay out a Mid-Bus probe pad with lanes in non-standard order, simplifying the design of the board. Internally the Summit T516 maps the lanes back into their correct order and accurately displays the embedded bus traffic. Other software features include enhanced error checking for automatic identification of additional error types, more compact trace files that allow for faster analysis of trace data, and the choice of simplified or advanced modes for setting up trace recording options.

Lan Support

The Summit T516 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 PCI Express protocol analyzers blend sophisticated functionality with practical features to speed the development of PCI Express IP cores, semiconductors, storage, graphics, servers, workstations, bridges, and switches.
