PCI Express 3.0 Compliance Testing
The Teledyne LeCroy PTC for PCI Express® (PCIe®) 3.0 technology is a PCI-SIG® approved compliance test tool for PCI Express 3.0 protocol compliance testing of link and transaction layers.
The Teledyne LeCroy Summit Z3-16 Exerciser will execute the new ATS PTC (Protocol Test Compliance) software for PCIe 3.0 solutions. This protocol test compliance software supports comprehensive testing of link and transaction layers of the PCIe protocol implementation on PCI Express-based devices. The Summit Z3-16 exerciser and ATS PTC (Protocol Test Compliance) are available as hardware & software bundle.
The new PTC for PCIe 3.0 technology can be used by validation and test engineers to check for PCIe protocol compliance and functionality of add-in cards, systems and chips that use PCI Express 3.0 architecture. The PTC requires the Summit T3-8 and PCI Express Test Platform as part of the test configuration. The user interface of the PTC simplifies testing the link and transaction layers, allowing desired tests to be selected from an intuitive menu and then run as a collection or individually by simply pushing a button. A descriptive report is generated indicating which of the tests were passed or failed. A key feature that makes this test solution more useful than previous test solutions is that it provides an additional protocol trace when it determines that a PCIe compliance test has failed. By helping developers understand and fix their problems quickly, the tool allows developers more opportunity to complete their compliance tests during the PCI-SIG compliance workshops which are scheduled at select times during the year.
*The ATS PCI Express 3.0 PTC (Protocol Test Compliance) suite requires a Summit T3 Protocol Analyser, Summit Z3-16 Exerciser and PCI Express Test Platform for full operation.
