End-to-End Solution for PCIe 1.0/2.0/3.0 Debug Captures Attention in Bus Analyzers Category for Test & Measurement World’s Annual Award Competition
BEAVERTON, Ore., May 18, 2011 – Tektronix, Inc., a leading worldwide provider of test, measurement and monitoring instrumentation,today announced that the TLA7SA00 Series Logic Protocol Analyzer has won a Best in Test award as part of the 2011 Test & Measurement World Awards program.
At an awards ceremony on Wednesday, May 4, 2011 during the ESC (Embedded Systems Conference) Silicon Valley, the TLA7SA00 Series was named winner in the Bus Analyzers category. The Best in Test awards are judged in 16 categories. To be eligible for the 2011 Best in Test awards, a product or service must have been introduced between November 1, 2009 and October 31, 2010.
“We have once again reviewed many commendable products nominated by vendors,” said Rick Nelson, Editorial Director, Test & Measurement World, UBM Electronics. “We congratulate Tektronix on their achievement.”
Introduced last April, the TLA7SA00 Series provides a comprehensive test solution for PCI Express 1.0/2.0/3.0, spanning protocol to physical analysis in a single tool. The solution includes TLA7SA16 and TLA7SA08 Logic Protocol Analyzer modules, bus support software, and probes, giving PCIe developers an exclusive time-correlated view of system behavior, starting with protocol analysis and working down to the physical layer to debug the root cause of elusive problems.
“As bus speeds and complexity increase from one generation to the next, we realized a need for a new solution that combined protocol, logic and physical layer analysis to more efficiently identify the cause of elusive hardware software problems,” said Dave Farrell, managing director of the Logic Analyzer Product Line, Tektronix. “The selection of the TLA7SA00 Series for a Best in Test award validates the “customer-first” approach we are taking in re-defining bus analysis test instrumentation.”
