Xgig 6P4 Exerciser for PCI Express 6.0

Xgig 4-Lane Exerciser for PCI Express 6.0

4-lane PCIe6 Exerciser solution with support for CXL and NVMe

Xgig® 6P16 Analyzer/Exerciser for PCI Express 6.0

The VIAVI Solutions Xgig® 4-Lane Exerciser for PCI Express® 6.0 is a valuable tool for debugging difficult protocol communication problems.  This 6P4 Exerciser can be configured to emulate the operation of a Root Complex (RC) or an Endpoint (EP) device, effectively acting as a highly-configurable link partner for testing Hosts and Endpoint devices.  The 6P4 has built-in analysis capabilities and is enabled automatically to capture full duplex data between the Exerciser and its link partner.  This is a fully integrated solution with Exerciser functionality provided in a single CEM card form factor.
