LeCroy Introduces 90 Degree Server Interposer for PCI Express 3.0 Protocol Analysis



DesignCon, Santa Clara, CA, February 1, 2011 – LeCroy Corporation, a leading supplier of serial data test solutions, today introduced a 90 Degree Server Interposer for the Summit™ PCI Express line of Protocol Analyzers. This new interposer solves the problem of tapping PCI Express 3.0 signals that are transmitted between an add-in card and the riser card mounted in the narrow I/O compartment of 1U and 2U rack servers.

The 90 Degree G3 Server Interposer card is based on LeCroy’s T.A.P.3 (Transparent Acquisition Probing) technology for PCIe 3.0, which was introduced on the Summit T3-16 product line last year. The new interposer is ideal for 1U and 2U server testing in that the PCI Express connector is mounted perpendicular to the surface of the interposer, instead of attached at the top of the interposer. Add-in cards can now easily connect to the interposer without interference by the internal structure of the chassis. The new 90 Degree Server interposer supports connectivity to full height or standard size add-in cards.

"For the last two server product generations, server developers have struggled with probing in a tight confined space. LeCroy worked with these developers to understand how to meet these challenges with the net result of an interposer ideal for server testing," said John Wiedemeier, Product Marketing Manager for PCI Express Protocol Solutions, LeCroy. "Today LeCroy has the widest selection of application-specific PCI Express protocol interposers and probes in the PCI Express industry."

LeCroy protocol analyzers have been at the forefront of PCI Express development tools. All LeCroy protocol analyzers feature a hierarchical display, 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.
