Description :

PCIe® - PCI Express and PCIe are registered trademarks of PCI-SIG.

The U4305A PCIe 3.0 Exerciser with pre-defined LTSSM test cases can help validate the complex and hard to test state transitions of DUT´s LTSSM. With the ability to emulate either a root complex or an end point in the same card, the U4305A PCIe 3.0 exerciser can help you validate your device whether it is a server or an add-in card. The emulated personality is easily switched through a simple software switch. The LTSSM test cases come with detailed reporting to clearly define the source of the failures, if found, for fast debug.

Keysight Technologies’s NVMe emulator allows users to test devices and create operational scripts that will allow hardware and software developers to simulate a host root complex. The emulator is able to test all of the NVMe functions of a storage device and from queue management to sending traffic loads to create test scenarios to prove device operation.

Aside from the pre-defined LTSSM test cases, the U4305A PCIe 3.0 Exerciser can be controlled also through an built-in API interface, which is backward compatible with Keysight Technologies’s PCIe 2.0 Exerciser. This allows customers to leverage test cases they have already developed for maximum investment protection.
