Highlights

See the Real Performance of Your Design

The foundation of the P5573A is the improved signal integrity provided through the integrated design of the Exerciser card which provides a solid, trustworthy test platform. This compact design allows Keysight engineers great versatility in ensuring that the P5573A would have signal integrity characteristics that could be configurable enough to be tuned for many different test environments, while also offering quick link up capability for test cases that focus on higher layer protocol debugging. The P5573A is designed to be easy to setup, connect, and be quickly configured to bring up the PCIe link and check basic LTSSM and protocol functionality. To support this the P5573A has many features included that allow for quick validation of fundamental PCIe features. 

  • Support up to 64GT/s with x4, x8 and x16 physical lane width options  
  • Automated Link training with skip and bypass support 
  • Traffic generation with lane reversal and polarity detection 
  • Scalable flow control support 
  • Link training and LTSSM control
  • Real Time Equalization 
  • Transactional Layer Generation 
  • Error Insertion 
  • Complete RAS test protocol solution
