First PCI Express® 5.0 OCP NIC 3.0 Interposer

Test Open Compute Project NIC 3.0 devices with PCIe®, NVMe®, or CXL up to 32GT/s

Milpitas, CA, May 10th, 2022 – Teledyne LeCroy, the worldwide leader in protocol test solutions, today announced availability of a PCI Express 5.0 Open Compute Project (OCP) Network Interface Card (NIC) 3.0 interposer that works in combination with Teledyne LeCroy’s Summit family of PCI Express 5.0 protocol analyzers.  The new OCP interposer allows engineers to test product designs that incorporate OCP NIC 3.0 with PCIe 5.0, NVM Express® (NVMe) or Compute Express Link™ (CXL) technologies.  The PCIe 5.0 OCP interposer joins the list of CrossSync™ PHY enabled interposers, allowing users to debug enhanced power management and link training equalization through correlated and time aligned physical and protocol layer views. No other solution gives this type of insight into link behavior.

The OCP NIC 3.0 specification defines a community driven open standard for network adapters designed to rapidly increase the pace of innovation in data center networking equipment, general purpose and GPU servers, storage devices and appliances, and scalable rack designs. The specification utilizes the SFF-TA-1002 connector and enables any OCP NIC 3.0 card from any vendor to work in any OCP NIC 3.0 server.  Now, design and test engineers can test, identify issues, and optimize OCP form factor network cards using the Teledyne LeCroy PCIe 5.0 OCP NIC 3.0 interposer in combination with one of the Summit PCIe 5.0 protocol analyzers. The interposer supports data rates of 2.5 GT/s, 5.0 GT/s, 8.0 GT/s, 16.0 GT/s, 32GT/s and supports link widths up to x16 using standard or multiPort configurations.

About CrossSync PHY

CrossSync PHY-capable interposer probes a live PCI Express link for simultaneous capture of both oscilloscope and protocol analyzer traces, providing insight into protocol-directed electrical behaviors to design and validation engineers. The CrossSync PHY software option for Teledyne LeCroy LabMaster™ and WaveMaster® oscilloscopes enables the oscilloscope’s MAUI® user interface to be viewed directly alongside the industry-standard Teledyne LeCroy CATC® protocol trace. The combination of the interposer and the software option permits the oscilloscope and protocol analyzer traces to be viewed, navigated, and analyzed in a time-correlated way unique to Teledyne LeCroy.


The PCIe 5.0 OCP NIC 3.0 interposer, which can be optionally upgraded with CrossSync PHY support, has been added to the Teledyne LeCroy PCI Express test solutions product line with the product code of PE260UIA-X.

The CrossSync PHY software option is supported with LeCroy LabMaster or WaveMaster oscilloscopes.

All products are available for immediate order.
