The VIAVI Solutions Xgig® Exerciser Host Test Stand for PCIe 5th generation complements the Exerciser and is intended for developing, debugging and performance tuning PCIe adapter cards and their controllers and firmware. The Test Stand provides a PCIe CEM slot for connectivity and power to the adapter card endpoint Device Under Test (DUT).
Working together with the Xgig® 5P16 Analyzer/ Exerciser Platform for PCI Express® 5.0 chassis, the test stand enables debug and verification of new controller ICs, firmware tuning, and validation of application software. It supports testing of Ethernet, RAID controllers, graphics cards and many other device functions. The Exerciser Host-mode Test Stand uses high-speed cabling to connect to the Analysis Platform running the Exerciser function.
