TeleScan PE Software
TeleScan PE is a no-cost PCI Express/NVMe configuration space Read/Write utility that allows the user to scan, decode, display and write to the PCI Express/NVMe configuration space registers.
All Summit analyzer platforms use the PCI Express iPASS connector for probing. Teledyne LeCroy features the largest selection of PCIe based interposers and probing solutions. Teledyne LeCroy's PCI Express Protocol Analyzer solutions employ non-intrusive and transparent probing technologies thereby allowing fully unaltered data pass-through. In addition, it leverages the intuitive and powerful Teledyne LeCroy’s Trace expert software system, embedding a deep understanding of the PCI Express protocol hierarchy and intricacies and presents this knowledge to the user in a colorful, intuitive and easy to use graphical display, allowing users to quickly capture and validate PCI Express product designs. These analyzers enable IP, semiconductor, switch, software and system developers as well as add-on card vendors to quickly identify protocol violations and ultimately reduce development and debugging time.
Developers can use Teledyne LeCroy's PCI Express Protocol solutions to easily capture and decode PCI Express Transaction Layer Packets (TLPs), Data Link Layer Packets (DLLPs), and low-level link traffic, including Training Sequences and Skip Ordered-sets. Some of the errors detected include: 8b/10b errors, such as invalid symbols and incorrect running disparity; CRC errors; idle data errors; and EDB (End-of-Packet Bad) errors. They also provide a detailed display of split transactions, correlating requests transmitted from one PCI Express endpoint with completions received from the endpoint at the opposite end of the link.
Teledyne LeCroy is well known for its technical leadership. Customers have come to depend on Teledyne LeCroy supporting protocols while they are early in development when these tools are essential.
The PCI Express exercisers can generate PCI Express transactions, observe behavior, and perform both stress testing and compliance testing. The Summit Z3-16 supports the new Specification 3.0 ("Gen3") data rates of 8 GT/s across up to 16 lanes. The Summit Z3-16 Exerciser supports up to x8 lane widths at data rates of 2.5 GT/s. As complete solutions, both the Summit T3-16 and Summit Z3-16, or PETracer/Trainer™ systems give you the unique ability to record (capture) live traffic, modify the traffic, and then playback the exact data stream, or "script," using the exerciser.
Protocol Test Card
Teledyne LeCroy offers an integrated and automated compliance testing system, including Protocol Test Cards, approved by the PCI-SIG® as a standard tool for compliance testing for developers working with both the PCIe 2.0 and 3.0 specifications. In addition, the Summit Z3-16 exerciser is the only approved tool to run the UNH-IOLs NVM Express Conformance Tests. These tests are required for the NVM Express Integrators test.
The powerful display allows users to group the devices in a simple device tree, Device/Port/Type, or Bus/Device/Function numbers. All register field descriptions are displayed by selecting the individual fields. Each register value in a single PCIe component's register can be read and if writable can be modified. The user can decode and change each bit value of any register on the fly using the built-in the PCIe specification display referenced for all registers. The extended register for M-PCIe is also decoded and displayed for devices supporting that specification. The PCIe/NVMe configuration space info on one system can be saved and later compared to a different system by loading a saved configuration onto a second system. Searching is available for locating PCIe devices. Other features include Auto Scan, Configuration Space View, Specification decoding for standard registers. The utility supports scanning on host machines using Microsoft Windows 7, 8, 10 and on Linux systems.
