PCI Express Analyser training day

PCI Express Analyser training day

8 October 2019

LeCroy workshop banner


Over the last few years, we have run a number of workshops in conjunction with Teledyne LeCroy, to provide an introduction into the principals and debug of PCI Express links. This time, we are modifying the format - it will be more hands on, learning to use the equipment, with less "theory" behind the PCI Express protocol itself.

So it's a shorter day, but, with as much practical work!

The day is aimed at:

  • Our existing customers, who own Teledyne LeCroy PCIe equipment, who would like a refresher
  • Hardware, software and firmware engineers who are learning how to use analysers, perhaps on a new project
  • Prospective customers who would like to get an understanding of how the protocol analysers could assist them in their debug and development work
  • Anyone developing boards / systems with PCIe Gen 1, 2, 3 or 4 who plans to use an analyser in the near future

Attendees will learn about:

  • Setup of the hardware, including different interposer and probing options for tapping into the PCI Express bus
  • Configuing the analyser appropraitely for your system
  • Simple and advanced triggering and filtering
  • Using the available views and analysis options to interpret the data captured
  • Analysing a protocol trace to understand:
    • Flow control operation
    • Link performance
    • Expose hardware and software operational characteristics
    • How to find the most common issues easily
  • Using protocol analyser and exerciser combination to stress an endpoint
  • Extensively test device operation
  • Using automated validation software to check PCIe Link and Transaction layer operation
  • How to test a link's behaviour when things that shouldn't happen, do happen.

Location: Maidenhead, UK. Lunch and refreshments included.

Cost: First two places per company free of charge; contact us if you need more places
