Xgig 5P8 Analyzer Platform for PCI Express 5.0

Provides full-speed 32Gbps data capture, enabling detailed functional and performance analysis of PCIe protocol.

Xgig 5P8 Analyzer Platform for PCI Express 5.0

The Xgig® 5P8 platform provides protocol analysis for PCIe 5th generation traffic at all layers of the stack. It supports link widths up-to 8-lanes, and link speeds to 32 GT/s.

Providing both PCIe protocol analysis and jamming functions, the Xgig 5P8 Protocol Analyzer expands the family of VIAVI protocol analysis products. In today’s complex, multiprotocol environments where integrated analysis with other interfaces such as Ethernet, SAS, and FC are required, the Xgig 5P8 connects with other VIAVI protocol analyzers designed for these protocols to provide time correlated multiprotocol views.

The Xgig 5P8 chassis has 128 GB of memory; 64GB for upstream and 64GB for downstream traffic capture. The chassis provides advanced PCIe and NVMe level trigger and search capabilities designed to reduce debug and problem resolution down time. Interposer autotuning greatly simplifies, and speeds system use and enables repeatable capture results.
