the new Agilent Digital Test Console, a complete and integrated x1 through x16 protocol analyzer and exerciser solution, comprised of an equalization snoop probe (ESP) technology for reliable data capture at 8GT/s, an LTSSM
tester for exercising and validating new encoding and protocol state machine designs, and a flexible GUI for helping debug advanced protocol features;
Agilent's new software for its E2960B Series protocol analyzer and LTSSM
exerciser solution meets this need.
Transaction layer testing and data link layer testing enables simultaneous use of the LTSSM
(Link Training and Status State Machine) tester and the exerciser.
changes supporting speed up/down negotiation and link up/down configuration (Recovery)
The LinkUP Trainer is a card-based LTSSM
exerciser that can generate training sequences at Gen1 and Gen2 speeds for lane widths from x1 to x16.
PCI Express LinkUP is a card-based LTSSM
exerciser that can generate training sequences at Gen1/Gen2 speeds for lane widths from x1 to x16.
exerciser generates training sequences at speed on all lanes for link width up to x16, which allows effective link negotiation testing using predefined test.
For the data link and physical layers, PCIE-VR features powerful randomized state transition loop mechanisms that exhaustively verify the flow control protocol, DLCMSM, and LTSSM
