- Teledyne LeCroy announced that the PCI Special Interest Group (PCI-SIG), responsible for the definition of serial expansion buses and related components required to drive transfers between processors and peripheral devices, has certified and approved the Summit Z58 Protocol Exerciser/Analyzer for official PCI Express link and transaction layer testing at PCI-SIG compliance workshops for integrators list certification.
- The Summit Z58 Protocol Exerciser/Analyzer is, according to Teledyne LeCroy, the only PCIe 5.0 capable platform certified for official PCI Express® compliance testing
Compliance testing allows design and test engineers to ensure product interoperability as well as adherence to the PCI-SIG PCIe standard.
The Summit Z58 Protocol Exerciser/Analyzer is the only PCIe 5.0 (Gen 5) capable platform certified by the PCI-SIG for official PCIe testing. It is to be used for all future link and transaction layer testing at PCI-SIG compliance workshops, including the PCIe 5.0 informational testing.
According to Teledyne LeCroy, this enables designers to use this test platform for PCIe 4.0 compliance testing now, while protecting their investment by using the same equipment for future PCIe 5.0 testing needs.
Teledyne LeCroy protocol analyzers and exercisers have followed the PCI Express bus development process since its inception 17 years ago to provide the essential analysis and testing capabilities. All Teledyne LeCroy protocol test solutions feature hierarchical views of recorded traffic, real-time statistics, protocol traffic summaries, detailed error reports, advanced scripting, and the ability to create user-defined test reports.
