Summit Z3-16 Exerciser with SMBus Support
The Summit Z3-16 with SMBus Support is a critical test and verification tool intended to assist engineers in developing and improving the reliability of their systems. The Summit Z3-16 with SMBus Support can emulate PCI Express root complexes or device endpoints, allowing new designs to be tested against corner case issues. In addition, it can emulate SMBus traffic as a master or slave.
The new Summit Z3-16 with SMBus Support builds on all of the same features as the previous Summit Z3-16 (traffic generator), adding support for SMBus traffic generation to PCI Express at the Gen3 data rates of 8 GT/s. The Summit Z3-16 Exerciser with SMBus Support, in combination with the Summit T34 Protocol Analyzer, provides a complete test and development environment for engineers working on new designs using PCI Express 3.0 and SMBus together. The Summit Z3-16 with SMBus works with standard PCIe 3.0 for other PCIe protocol analyzers as well.
The exerciser builds on the extensive programming and verification test libraries established over time with Teledyne LeCroy's PCI Express Exercisers, and provides the user a complete suite of test capability, including the ability to test products to the new PCI Express 3.0 specification.
