Xgig SFF-8674 4-lane Interposer for PCI Express 4.0

The SFF-8674 Interposer enables protocol analysis of PCI Express 4.0 traffic between an SFF-8674 attached host chassis port and an endpoint chassis or device.

Xgig SFF-8674 4-lane Interposer for PCI Express 4.0

The VIAVI Solutions Xgig® SFF-8674 4-lane Interposer for PCI Express 4.0 enables debug and validation of systems and PCIe connections having a mini-SAS HD/SFF-8674 interface. It supports test and debugging of peripheral devices, host systems, firmware and drivers. It also supports validation of system BIOS and software, PCIe chassis-to-chassis (server-to-JBOD/F) communications and manufacturing test.

Highlights

  • Operates up to 16GTps, PCIe gen-4 data rates
  • Downward compatible with PCIe gen-1, gen-2 and gen-3 data rates of 2.5, 5.0 and 8.0GTps
  • SFF-8674 host and target connections support PCIe links of up to 4-lanes
  • Multiple Interposers can be used with links to 16-lanes.
  • Supplied with two high-quality SFF-8674 equivalent custom cables for Analyzer plus two cables for DUT attachment
  • Data path uses high-speed linear redrivers to ensure good signal capture with minimal tuning
  • Supports Analyzer side-band signal capture and triggering in multiple formats
  • Two coax cables supplied for optional clocking sources
