- three applications in one hardware product: exerciser and link training and status state machine (LTSSM) test, compliance package, and PTC 2.0, with different software licenses
- controllable packet generation and error injection
- performance testing
- gold suite PTC 2.0 for PCIe® 2.0 protocol compliance testing
- over 180 additional tests in the compliance
The Keysight PTC 2.0 is used in the PCI-SIG gold suite for PCIe Gen2 protocol compliance testing.
For complete product assurance, a simple software upgrade on the same hardware takes you to the Compliance Assured Test Package (N5309A-COM) with 180 additional PCI-SIG recommended tests.
With the change from PCIe 1.0 to 2.0, the LTSSM has an even more important role, dealing with the change in speed and change in link width. The exerciser comes with an automated suite of tests that validate the correct behavior of the LTSSM.
The exerciser provides the ultimate flexibility in creating your own specific test cases. It is driven by a GUI interface and can create a packet type and inject many types of errors to stress test your device.
