Teledyne LeCroy has released the PCI Express (PCIe) protocol analyzers for the next-generation PCIe 5.0 specification at the PCI-SIG Developers Conference 2019.
PCIe 5.0 doubles the data rates offered by PCIe 4.0 and Teledyne LeCroy’s Summit family of high-speed PCIe protocol analyzers is the only test equipment available that meets the challenge of 32 GT/s protocol analysis. PCI-SIG, the consortium that owns and manages PCI specifications as open industry standards, announced the new PCIe 5.0 specification in last month.
Joe Mendolia, Vice President of Marketing, Protocol Solutions Group, Teledyne LeCroy, commented, “We are first to market with test equipment enabling companies to develop products using the new high-speed specification.”
Summit Protocol Analyzers with PCIe 5.0 Support
The Summit family of PCIe protocol analyzers can support either the PCIe 4.0 or the PCIe 5.0 specifications.
The Summit M5x protocol analyzer natively supports PCIe 4.0 and is an important tool for storage companies doing PCIe 4.0 and NVMe protocol analysis and jammer testing. The protocol analyzer can additionally support PCIe 5.0 through an easy-to-upgrade software license.
The Summit T54 protocol analyzer supports PCIe 5.0 technology at speeds of up to 32GT/s and up to x4 link widths. It also provides up to 64GB of recording memory that can be expanded to support up to 128GB of recording memory at up to x8 link widths by cascading a second Summit T54 system. The Summit T54 can be controlled through USB or can be remotely networked and controlled through a 1000baseT Ethernet connection. It also can be synchronized with other high-speed protocol analyzers or oscilloscopes from Teledyne LeCroy.
“High-performance computing, cloud computing, and artificial intelligence are driving the need for next-generation buses to support higher performance storage and networking infrastructures. PCIe 5.0 doubles the data rates previously available and will allow for the development of next-generation computing devices. Our Summit family of high-speed PCIe protocol analyzers will be used by developers leveraging PCIe 5.0 communication technology to develop products being launched in the next few years,” said Kevin Prusso, VP and GM of Teledyne’s Test and Measurement group.
