Anritsu and Synopsys to Jointly Demonstrate World’s First PCI Express® 5.0 Rx LEQ Test System
Signal Quality Analyzer-R MP1900A and Compliance Board with Synopsys’ DesignWare IP to Show Stress Signal Generation and Link Training at DesignCon 2020
Anritsu Corporation and Synopsys are jointly demonstrating the world’s first PCI Express® (PCIe® ) 5.0 Rx LEQ Test System supporting compliance test items using Anritsu’s Signal Quality Analyzer-R MP1900A series PCI Express 5.0 test system and Synopsys’ DesignWare® IP for PCIe at DesignCon 2020 in Santa Clara, January 28-30. The live demonstrations have been conducted in the Anritsu DesignCon booth, #837.
With high-speed data rates of 32 GT/s, PCIe 5.0 requires new measurements, such as complex link training and crosstalk tests. With high-quality signals supporting 32G, the MP1900A PCIe solution improves the efficiency of link training tests by monitoring/logging Link Training and Status State Machine (LTSSM) transitions and generating event triggers for waveform capture. Multichannel expandability for crosstalk tests and easy expandability from PCIe 4.0 (16 GT/s data rates) to PCIe 5.0 (32 GT/s data rates) support early implementation of PCIe 5.0 products.
The joint DesignCon 2020 exhibit demonstrated stress signal generation using the MP1900A BERT and a PCIe 5.0 compliance board. It also conducted actual link training of a system incorporating the Synopsys DesignWare IP for PCIe 5.0 and Anritsu MP1900A PCIe 5.0 Link Training Software to evaluate receiver stressed input characteristics.
About the Signal Quality Analyzer-R MP1900A
Anritsu’s Signal Quality Analyzer-R MP1900A series is a high-performance bit error rate tester (BERT) for testing computer high-speed bus interfaces, such as PCI Express 5.0, USB3.2/4.0, and 53.125-Gbaud PAM4 400/800 GbE-compliant communications equipment.
