Xgig® 5P16 Analyzer/ Exerciser Platform for PCI Express® 5.0

Provides 16-lane full-speed data capture, error injection and device emulation enabling detailed functional and performance analysis of PCIe 5.0 protocol.

Xgig 16-lane Analyzer/Jammer Platform for PCI Express 5.0

The VIAVI Solutions Xgig 5P16 platform allows simultaneous protocol analysis for PCIe 5th generation protocol traffic at all layers of the stack. The exerciser capability supports compliance testing and advanced debug. It supports link speeds to 32 GT/s and widths up-to 16-lanes.

The latest addition to the family of VIAVI protocol test products, it is fully compatible with other PCIe data rates of 2.5, 5.0, 8.0 and 16GTps. In today’s complex, multiprotocol environments where integrated analysis with other interfaces such as Ethernet, SAS, and FC are required, the Xgig 5P16 connects with other VIAVI protocol analyzers designed for these protocols to provide time correlated multiprotocol views.
