Quickly characterize the performance of your PCIe® 5.0 and earlier Transmitter Design

Overview

  • Automate PCIe® Transmitter testing to 5.0 & earlier CEM specifications at the push of a button
  • Automates any compatible Keysight or Tektronix oscilloscope in one solution
  • Increase test efficiency automated test mode cycling and offline processing
  • Compatible with PCI-SIG official Compliance Base Boards (CBBs) and Compliance Load Boards (CLBs)
  • Supports Sigtest Phoenix for PCIe® Gen 5.0 testing
  • Runs on oscilloscope OS or remotely over Win7+ PC

Description

GRL’s PCI Express® Transmitter Compliance Test Solution provides full automation of PCI Express® 5.0 and earlier Transmitter CEM (Card Electro Mechanical) Specification Compliance testing at 32, 16, 8, 5, and 2.5GT/s data rates with any compatible Tektronix or Keysight oscilloscope.

GRL-PCIE-TX increases test efficiency by automating power and signal quality test sequencing and offline processing of captured waveforms following PCI-SIG-approved Methods of Implementation (MOIs) with Keysight or Tektronix real-time oscilloscopes using existing PCI-SIG Compliance Base Boards (CBBs) and Compliance Load Boards (CLBs).

GRL-PCIE-TX software works with the optional GRL PCIe® P1 controller (GRL-PCIE-P1), with up to 8X faster test throughput performance possible on a multi-core PC. GRL-P1 quickly captures waveforms, freeing up the oscilloscope for other work, and is automatically programmed to capture only the waveforms for the test that the user wants to perform.

GRL-PCIE-TX can be configured to capture and test all waveforms in a PCIe Gen 1 to Gen 5 system (lane, data rate, preset), or individual waveforms, and performs all SigTest signal quality and de-emphasis compliance tests. The software’s multi-threading of SigTest further reduces test time.
