For analysis of Enterprise and Datacenter Small Form Factor E1.S, E1.L, E3.x type SSDs and devices
These interposers work in combination with the Summit family of PCIe 5.0 protocol analyzers to test product designs that utilizes the PCIe 5.0, NVMe and Compute Express Link (CXL) protocol technologies with data rates up to 32GT/s and link widths up to 16x. The PCIe 5.0 EDSFF interposers include the company’s CrossSync PHY technology, enabling users to debug enhanced power management and link training equalization, through correlated and time aligned physical and protocol layer views.
First PCIe 5.0 EDSFF CrossSync PHY interposers for SSD protocol testing
EDSFF devices designed for high performance systems make up a growing segment of the enterprise and datacenter storage devices market. Based on the PCIe 5.0, NVMe and CXL specs, the EDSFF interface can support speeds of up to 32GT/s. Now design and test engineers can test, identify issues, and optimize EDSFF (E1.S, E1.L, E3.x) type memory systems and SSD performance using PCIe 5.0 EDSFF interposers.
About CrossSync PHY
A CrossSync PHY-capable interposer probes a live PCIe link for simultaneous capture of both oscilloscope and protocol analyzer traces, providing insight into protocol-directed electrical behaviors to design and validation engineers. The CrossSync PHY software option for the firm’s LabMaster and WaveMaster oscilloscopes enables the oscilloscope’s MAUI user interface to be viewed directly alongside the company’s CATC protocol trace. The combination of the interposer and the software option permits the oscilloscope and protocol analyzer traces to be viewed, navigated, and analyzed in a time-correlated way.
Three PCIe 5.0 EDSFF Interposer models, which can be optionally upgraded with CrossSync PHY support, have been added to the company’s PCIe test solutions product line.
- PE243UIA-X – PCIe 5.0 4-lanes EDSFF E1.S interposer
- PE241UIA-X – PCIe 5.0 8-lanes EDSFF E1.L interposer
- PE240UIA-X – PCIe 5.0 16-lanes EDSFF E3.x interposer
They can connect with any of the firm’s PCIe 5.0 Summit protocol analyzers to capture and analyze PCIe bus traffic between a host backplane and SSD and/or CXL memory system.
The CrossSync PHY software option is supported with the company’s LabMaster and WaveMaster oscilloscopes.
