It has helped me to improve my design on PCIe PETracers, but I need more technical details on what each packet represents

What is our primary use case?

We are using it for debugging PCIe PETracers. We are using it to measure PCI Express signals. We are using it to support connect devices in enterprise products.

Pros and Cons

  • "Checking how many errors were on the channel by using the protocol analyzer has helped me to improve my design on PCIe PETracers."
  • "I would like more technical details on what each packet represents and more information on the flow."

What other advice do I have?

Teledyne is pretty good because they cover all the technical webinars. Also, they give a lot of seminars. The application space that we are using the solution to target is high-speed serial. For PCIe 3.0, we are looking at the PCIe add-on card with the analyzer in-between.

We are able to capture the transient domain accurately. I would like them to add more post processing capabilities.

What is our primary use case?

The primary use case is for testing IT files. We are testing files for memory read or write (or other scenarios), but mostly it is on the platform, test package, of both. The bandwidth is up to 10 gigabytes per second for the oscilloscope because we are testing high speed signals. I'm not a frequent user. Sometimes we use the oscilloscope for measurement. It depends on product and what testing that we are trying to do. I have used oscilloscopes since I was a Bachelor's student, where we used different types of oscilloscopes.

Pros and Cons

  • "We are able to capture the transient domain accurately. There are some technical features where you can do FFT."
  • "Since we do a lot of post processing when we download our waveforms to our computers, we need more post processing capabilities."

What other advice do I have?

It meet our basic needs. Since we do a lot of post processing when we download our waveforms to our computers, we need more post processing capabilities. If you have used oscilloscopes before, no matter the brand, it's probably easy to learn. The panel may be different, but it's easy to ramp up on the new model. This user interface is good. Most of the oscilloscopes that I have used have good user interfaces. The application space that we are using the solution to target is mostly high-speed signaling or memory interface. I would encourage people to use it and get some experience to see how…

It has a lot of scope trigger options for capturing waveforms

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case is a lot of test and measurement debugging. We have a number of the LeCroy real-time scopes. We often use the 4 gigabyte real-time 12-bit scope. The application space that this solution targets is high-speed. Our product is 56G, but debug would be lower speed, PCIe channels, USB, and I2C.

Pros and Cons

  • "It has a nice high-resolution screen. It is easy to set up the scope triggers, has a lot of scope trigger options for capturing waveforms, and seamlessly goes into the spectrum analysis mode."
  • "They could always work on the software stability of the products, particularly now that everything has switched over to a Windows-based interface. It creates a lot of crashes and bugs, which typically is a problem among all instruments."

What other advice do I have?

I would totally recommend this product. It's a pretty advanced product. Therefore, the learning curve does require some learning, but once you've mastered it, it's worth it. They're pretty good at keeping up with all the latest advances. As our budget permits, we'd obviously like to upgrade to higher speeds and real-time scopes.

By pre-qualifying test devices, we're able to make changes before committing to silicon

What is our primary use case?

PCI express certification and testing are our primary use cases.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable feature is the embedded protocol analysis."
  • "The interconnect methods to the device are a little limited right now. I'd like to see other ways of being able to connect to the device."

What other advice do I have?

There are external modules that go with the product, which you connect to, to help get your testing worked out.

We heavily use it to validate the design assumption

What is our primary use case?

We are using anything that's 10 gigahertz plus for signal integrity.

Pros and Cons

  • "We heavily use it to validate the design assumption. In many cases, it was able to point out things that were not available to us in simulation."
  • "I would like them to be current with the latest standards. So, as soon as a new standard comes in, ensure that it gets rolled into the existing software."

What other advice do I have?

We haven't gone wrong by sticking to the major brands. The user interface is pretty straightforward. The application space that the solution targets is mostly high-speed serial. We are using this product with connection devices. We use this product mostly for silicon validation, making sure that the silicon that we have is behaving how we expect it and meets our standard or exceeds it. So, it's about the hardware being able to conform to specification. We are mostly measuring interface and high-speed signals. It's functional. It works. It meets our requirements. However, like most capital…
