Xgig® 5P16 Analyzer/ Exerciser Platform for PCI Express® 5.0

Provides 16-lane full-speed data capture, error injection and device emulation enabling detailed functional and performance analysis of PCIe 5.0 protocol.

Xgig® 5P16 Analyzer/ Exerciser Platform for PCI Express® 5.0


  • 32GTps, PCIe 5.0 data rate operation
  • Fully compatible with previous PCIe generations at 2.5G, 5.0G, 8G and 16GTps
  • Link widths to 16-lanes, including 1-, 2-, 4-, and 8-lanes 
  • 256GB memory (128GB upstream and 128GB downstream) 
  • Memory segmentation for capture of multiple traces 
  • Host-Client connection for remote debugging using Ethernet or local debugging using USB 
  • SMB capture and trigger for NVMe Management Interface (NVMe-MI) observability 
  • Supports full Analyzer functionality together with Exerciser operation
  • Highly flexible PCIe protocol generation and response (exerciser)
  • The Auxiliary ports allow multi-chassis operation
  • Decodes all PCIe and NVMe traffic at all layers of the stack including the TLP, DLLP, and PHY layer logic sub-blocks
  • Flexible trigger events include training sequences, ordered sets, queue pairs, PRPs, SGL, SMB, etc.
  • Cascade captures from up to four Xgig chassis into a single trace view
  • Full support of PCI Express LTSSM analysis
  • Field replaceable modular fan and power supply
  • LED’s give quick indicators of power and status
  • Works with the VIAVI Xgig software tool suite: Trace Control, Trace View, Expert
  • Supported by a wide variety of interposers (CEM, U.3, etc.)


  • Automatically scan data traces for thousands of possible PCIe protocol error types
  • Significantly reduces product debug and validation time for faster time-to-market
  • Automated tuning of RX/TX characteristics simplifies setup and insures accurate data capture
  • Extensive configurability via software enables optimization for specific test requirements
  • Helps to reduce product development costs and time-to-market


  • ASIC debug and validation
  • PCIe add-in card testing
  • BIOS, driver and application tuning
  • System validation and performance tuning
  • Debug of interoperability and related issues
