PCIe Gen 3 Protocol Analyzer Datasheet

The PCIe Gen 3 Protocol Analyzer (PGY-PCIeGen3-PA) is a PCIe Protocol Analyzer that supports protocol decode and analysis of PCIe Gen1/2/3-X 16. PCIe design and test engineers can easily captures and record traces at 2.5, 5.0 and 8 GT/s at specific event and obtain error report instantaneously at affordable price. This enables the design and test engineers to reduce the development time and address the time to market needs. PCIe Gen3 data is captured using interposers between the root complex and end point (Device under test). PCIe Gen3 interposers support. PCIe Gen3 Protocol Analyzer’s software provides complete decode and error analysis of Transaction Layer Packets (TLPs), data link Layer Packets and with LTSSM information.

PGY-PCIeGen3-PA software provides powerful protocol decode capabilities enabling engineers to quickly identify the problems in protocol layer. Software is capable of decoding the packets and provide error analysis. Different views of Protocol layer enables the user to quickly identify the problems in protocol. Power search, filter-in, filter-out features simplify debug activity.

PGY-PCIeGen3-PA provides sophisticated protocol trigger features which allows trigger on specific protocol event and capturing the data of interest. Auto, simple and advanced trigger features capture PCIe bus activity, specific event and monitor multiple trigger conditions and capture data around it.
