With these low cost bus analysis tools designers can use their logic analyzer as
a PCI Express and/or ExpressCard bus analyzer. The Bus Analysis Probes, coupled with
the powerful logic analyser triggering and analysis capabilities gives the user an
extremely effective and efficient tool for debugging, testing and verifying products
incorporating PCI Express and/or ExpressCard bus systems. The Bus Analysis Probes
include logic analyser configuration software for easy setup and Protocol Decode.
The PCI Express debug probes can probe x1, x2, x4 and x8 bidirectional footprints.
See below for details of suitable target adapter cables and for support on unidirectional-shaped
midbus probe pinout.
PCI Express Analysis Probe FS4400:for use with Agilent Technologies Logic AnalysersPCI Express debug and protocol decode tools for use with a Agilent Technologies logic
PCI Express Protocol Preprocessor FS4405:for use with Tektronix Logic AnalysersPCI Express debug and protocol decode tools for use with a Tektronix logic analyzer.
The following probe cables are required for use with Tektronix logic analyzers: FS1055
TLA7Axx Probe Cable (for PCI Express X1-X4, 4 ea required; for PCI Express X8,
6 ea required)
PCI Express and Serial Rapid IOAnalysis: There are debug probes available for designers
working with both PCI Express and Serial RapoidIO, the FS4411 (Agilent Support) and
FS4416 (Tektronix Support) probe family. They are similar the the FS4400 or FS4405
above but also incorporates SRIO debug support. Please contact EPN Solutions for
Support for PCI Express ExpressCard is through adding the FS1033 ExpressCard interposer
to a PCI Express analysis probe or preprocessor, to either the FS4400 for Agilent
Technologies support or the FS4405 for Tektronix support.
Target System Adapter Cables
A target system adapter cable is required to connect the FS4400 and FS4405 to the
system under test. At least one of the options below must be ordered when ordering
the FS4400 or FS4405. It is not necessary to order all of the target system adapter
cables, only those required for your particular system.
