Teledyne LeCroy is a leading provider of protocol analyzers, exercisers/emulators, jammers and verification tools for existing and emerging digital communications standards. Designed to generate, capture, and analyze high-speed communications traffic, Teledyne LeCroy's tools help developers to discover and correct persistent and intermittent errors and flaws in their product design.
With advanced features such as support for PCI Express Spec 2.0, data rates of both 2.5 and 5 Gb/s, lane widths from x1 to x4, and a full 2GB of trace memory, the Summit T24 provides unmatched capability and flexibility for developers and users of advanced PCI Express products. The Summit T24 is the most cost effective PCI Express Analyzer available in the market today.
As with other Teledyne LeCroy PCI Express analyzers, the Summit T24 leverages the intuitive and powerful CATC Trace analysis software system, embedding a deep understanding of the PCI Express protocol hierarchy and intricacies. The colorful, intuitive and easy to use graphical display allows you to quickly capture and validate PCI Express product designs. All Teledyne LeCroy PCI Express protocol analyzers employ high-impedance, non-intrusive probing technology, thereby allowing fully unaltered data pass-through.
In addition to a full suite of advanced hardware and software features, the Summit T24 introduces new user-convenience and analysis features, such as support for "lane swizzling" which allows a board developer to lay out a mid-bus probe pad with lanes in non-standard order, simplifying the design of the board. Internally the Summit T24 maps the lanes back into their correct order and accurately displays the embedded bus traffic. Other new software features include enhanced error checking for automatic identification of additional error types, more compact trace files that allow for faster analysis of trace data, and the choice of simplified or advanced modes for setting up trace recording options. A new raw recording mode allows bytes to be recorded as they come across the link, allowing debugging of PHY layer problems and combining the features of a logic analyzer format with a protocol analyzer format. The new auto sense link feature monitors negotiation between devices of different lane widths, and the bifurcated link support recombines multilink PCI Express operations that have been separated into narrower links.
The Summit T24 supports remote connectivity by USB, engineers can operate the system remotely (e.g., install the client software on their desktop systems, and control an analyzer operating in a remote lab). Also, multiple engineers working collaboratively can time-share use of a single analyzer, reducing the need for an additional analyzer for each engineer, and increasing the cost effectiveness of the product.
The Summit T24 supports either x1, x2, x4 -to match user requirements with available budgets. The upward compatibility and 13 month warranty of the Summit T24 also provides investment protection for current Gen1 users who plan to upgrade to Gen2 devices in the future.
By leveraging years of experience in protocol analysis tools for emerging markets, Teledyne LeCroy's PCI Express protocol analyzers blend sophisticated functionality with practical features to speed the development of PCI Express IP cores, semiconductors, graphics, servers, workstations, bridges, and switches.
