Teledyne LeCroy protocol analyzer/jammer supports PCIe RAS testing

04 May 2020

Teledyne LeCroy Inc. has unveiled the PCIe 4.0 RAS (reliability, accessibility and serviceability) test solution for the Summit M5x PCIe Protocol Analyzer/Jammer, the world’s first platform to support PCIe RAS error injection. With its PCIe 4.0 compliant jamming capability, the Summit M5x delivers test functionality sought by Source: Teledyne LeCroy Inc.Source: Teledyne LeCroy Inc.engineers trying to ensure improved system robustness. The system quickly and easily injects RAS errors between a standard root complex and endpoint in adherence to design specifications to identify potential error handling problems.

The Summit M5x PCIe Protocol Analyzer/Jammer provides multi-protocol support for PCIe, NVMe and Gen-Z in a single box at transmission speeds of up to 32 GT/s, allowing for a new class of analysis and test for devices, servers, add-in cards and switches. It is also the first protocol analyzer to introduce jamming capabilities for NVMe and NVMe-MI protocols.

In addition to its ability to jam transmissions between the root complex and endpoint while remaining within normal PCIe operating specifications, the Summit M5x can capture, decode, modify and describe virtualized systems in a multitude of configurations. The new RAS testing functionality supports PCIe links up to 16 lanes at 16 GT/s, and includes the LinkExpert RAS tests to fully automate the testing and validation of system level error handling and reporting mechanisms.

The Teledyne LeCroy Summit M5x PCI Express RAS Testing solution is available for order now.
