Description :

Keysight Technologies, the company that provided E2969A, the gold standard Protocol Test Card (PTC) I, is now providing E2969B PTC II for PCIe 2.0. The Keysight Technologies PTC II will enable device compliance with the PCI-SIG by providing all 22 mandatory test cases. This test capability will also facilitate industry deployment of the PCIe 2.0 technology. PTC II is an electrical implementation running at 5.0 GT/s, and supports all link widths, from x1 to x16. Further more, the PTC II can be plugged into any host platform for system testing, or be connected to an add-in card. A Graphical User Interface (GUI) provides selectable test execution with a single mouse click.

An intuitive HTML report displays the test results: passed tests in green, warnings in yellow, and failed tests in red. A detailed test report makes it simple to understand the cause for failure, and can be used for troubleshooting and debugging.
