Teledyne LeCroy introduced its most cost-effective PCI Express protocol analyzer with interchangeable interposers for probing. The new compact but feature-packed Summit T24 Protocol Analyzer features a small chassis footprint while maintaining the same data analysis features found in the top-of-the-line Summit T3-16 protocol analyzer. The Summit T24 protocol analyzer supports PCIe data transmission rates up to 5GT/s and data lane widths up to x4 in a single compact unit.
Protocol analyzers are used by system integrators and by driver and firmware developers to understand serial data communication between devices and systems. The protocol analyzer acquires, records, decodes, analyzes and displays complex high-speed serial I/O communication streams, such as PCI Express. The new Summit T24 protocol analyzer provides a solution for system implementers by providing powerful data capture and analysis at low prices.
The Summit T24 also supports upgrade paths from low-cost base units to higher data rates and larger lane size.
