Summit T3-8 Analyzer
The Summit T3-16 Protocol Analyzer captures, decodes and displays PCIe 3.0 protocol traffic data rates for x1, x2, x4, x8 lane widths.
PCIe 3.0 technology achieves twice the effective data throughput rate of the PCIe 2.0 standard through a combination of increased data bit rate (5 GT/s moving to 8 GT/s) and the elimination of 8b/10b data encoding, which previously added an overhead of 20 percent to all data transfers. In eliminating 8b10b encoding, PCIe 3.0 technology now relies on the existing data scrambling techniques similar to those used for PCIe 2.0 technology to ensure that receivers maintain lock on the incoming data stream.
With advanced features such as support for PCI Express Spec 3.0, data rates of 2.5, 5 and 8 GT/s, lane widths from x1 to x16, and a full 8 GB of trace memory, the Summit T3-8 provides unmatched capability and flexibility for developers and users of advanced PCI Express products. The Summit T3-8 is by far the most advanced and sophisticated PCI Express Analyzer available in the market today.
The Summit T3-8 is available in two configurations—that support either x1, x2, x4, and x8; or x1, x2, x4, x8, and x16 if combined with a second Summit T3-8—to match user requirements with available budgets. The upward compatibility and 13 month warranty of the Summit T3-8 also provide investment protection for current Gen1 and Gen2 users who plan to upgrade to Gen3 devices in the future.
