Teledyne LeCroy expands Protocol Solutions offerings into wireless protocols including Bluetooth® and 802.11(Wi-Fi) with acquisition of Frontline Test Equipment.
Teledyne LeCroy is a leading provider of oscilloscopes, protocol analyzers and related Test and measurement instruments that enable companies across a wide range of industries to design and test electronic devices of all types. Protocol analyzers are tools used by designers and engineers to generate and monitor traffic over high speed serial data interfaces, including DDR, PCI Express, Fibre Channel, Serial ATA, SAS, USB and others. Both products are critical in the development of a wide variety of demanding design applications.
Teledyne LeCroy is a leading provider of protocol analyzers, exercisers/emulators, jammers and verification tools for existing and emerging digital communications standards. Designed to generate, capture, and analyze high-speed communications traffic, Teledyne LeCroy's tools help developers to discover and correct persistent and intermittent errors and flaws in their product design.
The Summit T416 is Teledyne LeCroy's latest generation of protocol analyzers targeted at high speed PCI Express 4.0 I/O-based applications such as workstation, desktop, graphics, storage, and network card applications.
The Teledyne LeCroy Summit T24 PCI Express analyzer is for customers developing PCIe 1.0 or 2.0 x4 lane width server, workstation, desktop, graphics, storage, and network card applications
The Summit Z3-16 with SMBus Support is a critical test and verification tool intended to assist engineers in developing and improving the reliability of their systems. The exerciser can emulate PCI Express root complexes or device endpoints, allowing new designs to be tested against corner case issues. In addition, it can emulate SMBus traffic as a master or slave.
The BitTracer Logic Display is a software option that runs on the Teledyne LeCroy Summit PCI Express Protocol Analyzers. BitTracer offers developers a physical layer view of PCI Express traffic, similar to what might be displayed on a logic analyzer, but provides this capability on a protocol analyzer. This means that developers can view bit stream traffic before it is decoded to high-level packets, to better understand where signal integrity issues may be causing data corruption.
Teledyne LeCroy offers an integrated and automated compliance testing system, including the Protocol Test Card Platform, approved by the PCI-SIG as a standard tool for compliance testing for developers working with the PCIe 3.0 specification.
The NVMe tests are designed to determine if a product conforms to specifications defined in the NVM Express . Successful completion of these tests provide a reasonable level of confidence that the Device Under Test (DUT) will function properly in a NVM Express environment.
Teledyne LeCroy has been an industry leader in storage protocol analysis. The storage SSD/Drive technology is now moving towards a PCI Express host based interface. Teledyne LeCroy supports the following:
The PCIe 4.0 Test Platform t allows the Summit Z416 to act as a host emulator, and provides a general purpose test backplane and interposer for testing Gen4, Gen3, Gen2 or Gen1 hosts and devices.
The Summit Z3-16 Test Platform with SMBus Support allows the Summit Z3-16 to act as a host emulator, and provides a general purpose test backplane and interposer for testing Gen3, Gen2 or Gen1 hosts and devices. In addition, it supports the Summit Z3-16 with SMBus Support by providing SMBus tapping connectivity.
The Teledyne LeCroy PXP-100B Test Platform provides a convenient means for testing PCIe 2.0 add-in cards with a self-contained portable and powered passive backplane. The PXP-100B provides power required for both cards under test, and an interposer can be used for connection to a protocol analyzer.
