Protocol Test Card Accelerates PCIe Validations

For validating functions and compliance of PCI Express 2.0 designs, the Protocol test Card (PTC) II for PCI Express 2.0 enables device compliance with PCI-SIG specifications by providing all mandatory test cases. With a single mouse click, users can run all tests and view detailed results through an HTML report. A software upgrade on the PTC II can take hardware to either the Compliance Assured Test Package, running more than 180 tests, or to a full exerciser including Link Training and Status State Machine tests. Card features include an electrical PCIe 2.0 implementation running at 5-Giga transfers per second (GT/s), software or external host control via USB, and a graphical user interface on the host that provides selectable validation tests. Pricing for the E2969B PTC II starts at $8,900. AGILENT TECHNOLOGIES INC., Santa Clara, CA. (800) 829-4444, item number 8174.
