Xgig 5P8 Analyzer/Exerciser/Jammer Platform for PCI Express 5.0

Xgig 8-Lane PCI Express 5.0 Chassis

Provides full-speed 32Gbps data capture, enabling detailed functional and performance analysis of PCIe protocol along with simultaneous multi-user capabilities

The Xgig® 5P8 platform provides protocol analysis for PCIe 5th generation traffic at all layers of the stack. It supports link widths up-to 8-lanes, and link speeds to 32 GT/s. Providing PCIe protocol analysis, exerciser and jamming functions, the Xgig 5P8 Protocol Analyzer expands the family of VIAVI protocol analysis products. Offering multi-link support, VIAVI further reduces customer TCO by allowing chassis access to multiple users simultaneously. Today’s complex, multiprotocol environments need integrated analysis with other interfaces such as Ethernet, SAS, and FC. The Xgig 5P8 connects with other VIAVI protocol analyzers designed for those protocols to provide time correlated multiprotocol views.

The Xgig 5P8 chassis has 128 GB of memory; 64GB for upstream and 64GB for downstream traffic capture. The chassis provides advanced  PCIe and NVMe level trigger and search capabilities designed to reduce debug and problem resolution down time. Interposer autotuning greatly simplifies, and speeds system use and enables repeatable capture results.

Please contact your local VIAVI representative for details or find more product options on our PCIe Test Equipment page.


  • The VIAVI 5P8 hardware chassis and complementary Xgig software tools support the latest PCIe 5.0 and NVMe specifications.
  • Analysis will alert the user to all protocol errors at every layer of the PCIe stack, including state and sub-state level errors within the LTSSM viewer.
  • When purchasing the 5P8 platform, also select appropriate analyzer, exerciser and jammer licenses, as well as interposers to fit your specific application requirements.
