Teledyne LeCroy's Summit T416 PCI Express 4.0 protocol analyzer

PCI Express 4.0: Teledyne LeCroy’s Summit Analysers Offer Multiport Analysis

  • Teledyne LeCroy announced MultiPort analysis capability for its Summit PCI Express 4.0 Protocol Analyzer line of products.
  • MultiPort analysis in the Teledyne LeCroy PCIe 4.0 Protoctol Analyzer enables multiple PCIe Links to be captured, recorded and displayed to provide the whole I/O transactional picture for dual port SSDs and switch topologies.

Teledyne LeCroy’s MultiPort analysis supports capturing, recording and simultaneous display of four x4 links, two x8 links or one x16 link on the Summit T416 protocol analyzer as well as two x4 links or one x8 link on the Summit T48 protocol analyzer. Each PCIe link will take advantage of the deep memory buffers of the existing Summit T4 family of products. Side band signaling will also be captured, recorded and displayed providing in-band and out-of-band traces between the multiple time-correlated PCIe link recordings.

Teledyne LeCroy PCI Express protocol analyzers tools is designed for identifying, diagnosing errors and solving interoperability and performance issues. The intuitive views, including built-in protocol translations, hierarchical display, real-time statistics, protocol traffic summaries, detailed error reports, scripting and the ability to create user defined test reports allow to troubleshoot intricate problems.

According to Teledyne LeCroy, multiport analysis will make possible in one analyzer platform what would have taken multiple analyzer platforms to accomplish. The Summit T4 family is designed for companies working with SSD storage, switch and repeater technologies. It features such as support for PCI Express Spec 4.0, data rates of 2.5, 5, 8 and 16 GT/s, lane widths from x1 to x16, and a 128 GB of trace memory.
