SMI Protocol Exerciser and Analyzer
SMI Protocol Analyzer (PGY-SMI-EX-PD) are the Protocol Analyzers with multiple features to capture and debug communication between host and design under test. PGY-SMI-EX-PD is the leading instrument that enables the design and test engineers to test the respective SMI designs for its specifications by configuring the PGY-SMI-EX-PD as Master/Slave, generating SMI traffic and decoding the SMI protocol decode packets.
SMI also called as Management Data Input/Output, or MDIO, is a 2-wire serial bus that is used to manage physical layer devices in media access controllers (MACs) in Gigabit Ethernet equipment. The management of these PHYs is based on the access and modification of their various registers.
