Teledyne LeCroy Announces Industry-First Capability to Analyze PCI Express® Across Physical and Protocol Layers

Tuesday, February 23, 2021 - 6:10pm

When testing and debugging PCIe, engineers use protocol analyzers to view protocol messages between components over a relatively long period of time.

Key Points: 
  • When testing and debugging PCIe, engineers use protocol analyzers to view protocol messages between components over a relatively long period of time.
  • They cannot, however, capture protocol messages with oscilloscopes because they run out of memory before the protocol event occurs.
  • For this reason, engineers need to use the two separate instruments in entirely different set ups when testing an application using PCI Express.
  • The CrossSync PHY software option for Teledyne LeCroy LabMaster and WaveMaster oscilloscopes enables the oscilloscope's MAUI user interface to be viewed directly alongside the industry-standard Teledyne LeCroy CATC protocol trace.

Teledyne LeCroy Enables First-Ever Full Picture of PCIe with Launch of CrossSync™ PHY

Tuesday, February 23, 2021 - 1:00pm

Engineers also need to use oscilloscopes to measure PCIe electrical performance at the physical layer with a high degree of resolution.

Key Points: 
  • Engineers also need to use oscilloscopes to measure PCIe electrical performance at the physical layer with a high degree of resolution.
  • By linking the oscilloscope with the protocol analyzer using Teledyne LeCroys new CrossSync PHY Interposer Probes and Software Options Link, engineers can now test PCIe using one system test.
  • Our new CrossSync PHY technology does just that, enhancing reliability and performance while also improving time to market.
  • Teledyne LeCroy is based in Chestnut Ridge, N.Y. For more information, visit Teledyne LeCroy's website at teledynelecroy.com .
