The Xgig 4K16 PCI Express Protocol Analyzer/Jammer is a single platform that allows for simultaneous protocol analysis and error injection for PCIe 4th generation protocol traffic at all layers of the stack. It supports lane widths of x1, x2, x4, x8, and x16 at link speeds of 2.5 GT/s, 5.0 GT/s, 8.0 GT/s and 16 GT/s. The Xgig 4K16 is the latest addition of PCI Express 4.0 Analyzer and Jammer test tools to the family of VIAVI protocol products.
Multicolored LEDs on the front panel specify Link Speed, Lane Width, and Signal Quality. In today’s complex, multiprotocol environments where integrated analysis with other interfaces such as Ethernet, SAS, and FC are required, the Xgig 4K16 PCIe Analyzer connects with other VIAVI protocol analyzers designed for these protocols to provide time correlated multi-protocol views.
The Xgig 4K16 PCIe 4.0 Protocol Analyzer/Jammer chassis has 128 GB of memory; 64GB for upstream and 64GB for downstream traffic capture. The chassis provides advanced PCIe and NVMe trigger and search capabilities designed to reduce debug and problem resolution down time. Software and firmware supports the latest PCIe and NVMe specifications and will alert the user to all errors at every layer of the PCIe stack, including state and sub-state level errors within the LTSSM viewer. Additional features of the Xgig PCI Express Protocol Analyzer include interposer auto-tuning, PCIe and NVMe Device & Addresses, configuration space viewer, PCIe link performance measurements, trace view packet compression, and sideband signal triggers for PERST#, PEWAKE#, and CLKREQ#.
With a full complement of interposers and probes, the Xgig 4K16 PCIe Protocol Analyzer supports all PCIe and NVMe connector interfaces including the addition of x8 and x16 solder-down style Flying Lead probes. Using a time-synchronized packet trace view, the Xgig 4K16 supports the SMBus captures to be shown alongside PCIe or NVMe packets.
