Summit Z58 Protocol Exerciser / Analyzer Approved by PCI-SIG

The Summit Z58 Protocol Exerciser / Analyzer is the only PCIe 5.0 capable platform certified for official PCI Express® compliance testing

Milpitas, CA, May 20th, 2021 – Teledyne LeCroy, the worldwide leader in serial data test solutions is pleased to announce that the PCI Special Interest Group (PCI-SIG), responsible for the definition of serial expansion buses and related components required to drive fast, efficient transfers between processors and peripheral devices, has certified and approved the Summit Z58 Protocol Exerciser/Analyzer for official PCI Express link and transaction layer testing at PCI-SIG compliance workshops for integrators list certification.

Compliance testing allows design and test engineers to ensure product interoperability as well as adherence to the PCI-SIG PCIe standard, enabling technology adoption among integrators.  The Summit Z58 Protocol Exerciser/Analyzer is the only PCIe 5.0 (Gen 5) capable platform certified by the PCI-SIG for official PCIe testing. It is to be used for all future link and transaction layer testing at PCI-SIG compliance workshops, including the PCIe 5.0 informational testing. This enables designers to use this test platform for PCIe 4.0 compliance testing now, while protecting their investment by using the same equipment for future PCIe 5.0 testing needs.

Teledyne LeCroy protocol analyzers and exercisers have been at the forefront of PCI Express development since its inception 17 years ago, working closely with the computer, storage and IoT industry to provide the analysis features design and test engineers need for their products. All Teledyne LeCroy protocol test solutions feature hierarchical views of recorded traffic, real-time statistics, protocol traffic summaries, detailed error reports, powerful scripting, and the ability to create user-defined test reports, which allow developers to troubleshoot intricate problems and finish their projects on time. Users of Teledyne LeCroy systems appreciate the rich library of decodes and analysis capabilities that are available on all of Teledyne LeCroy’s PCIe specification test tools.


The Summit Z58 PCIe 5.0 protocol exerciser and analyzer is currently available to order. For additional information, contact Teledyne LeCroy at 1-800-5LeCroy (1-800-553-2769) or visit Teledyne LeCroy's web site at teledynelecroy.com.
