TekExpress PCIe test selection for compliance test analysis

 

The Tektronix Option PCE3 (Gen1/2/3) and PCE4 (Gen 1/2/3/4) includes compliance and debug testing and electrical validation for the following:

  • Root complex
  • Endpoints
  • Switches
  • Bridges
  • Add-In cards
  • System boards
  • Embedded systems
  • Express module

 

The Tektronix Option PCE3 and PCE4 applications include a TekExpress™ compliance automation solution that integrates SigTest from the PCI-SIG as well as Tektronix DPOJET-based PCI Express Jitter and Eye Diagram analysis tools for debug purposes in a single software package.

TekExpress compliance automation is available now for PCIe Gen1-3 CEM and Base testing via option PCE3, and for PCIe Gen1-4 Base and PCIe1-3 CEM via option PCE4.

The Tektronix Option PCE3 and Option PCE4 applications are compatible with Tektronix DPO/MSO70000 series oscilloscopes that are designed to meet the challenges of the next generation of serial data standards such as PCI Express. These oscilloscopes provide the industry's leading vertical noise performance with the highest number of effective bits (ENOB) and flattest frequency response for oscilloscopes in their class. The Tektronix DPO/MSO70000 series of oscilloscopes have been approved by PCI-SIG for compliance testing.

Compliance testing

The PCI-SIG provides PCI Express compliance tests for testing PCI Express systems and add-in cards. For a PCI Express system or a device to be placed on the Integrators List, the system or device must pass interoperability and compliance testing. For electrical validation, the PCI-SIG uses SigTest Post Capture Analysis Software that uses acquisitions from an oscilloscope connected to the PCI-SIG's CBB (main board + riser) test fixture for add-in cards or CLB test fixture for systems to perform the analysis. Manually capturing the required waveforms and analyzing them is tedious, time consuming, and error prone.

The Tektronix Option PCE3 and Option PCE4 TekExpress Automation for PCI Express Transmitter Compliance reduces the effort and accelerates the compliance testing for PCI Express systems and devices with several unique and innovative capabilities. These options ultimately allow the testing of devices that support various technologies, such as NVMe, which is supported as an add-in card device, or through a U.2 or M.2 connector.

The Option PCE3 and Option PCE4 TekExpress Automation software can control the DUT using selected models of a Tektronix AFG or AWG pattern source and automatically cycle it through various speeds, de-emphasis, and presets that are necessary for the compliance test. This eliminates the error-prone manual push button approach normally used for DUT control on the CBB and CLB test fixtures.

A complete test run requires multiple waveforms to be acquired at different DUT settings per lane. This waveform set will increase by the number of lanes that need to be analyzed. The ability to manage and store the required data for analysis and future reference is an important criterion for any compliance solution. The Option PCE3 and Option PCE4 TekExpress automation software, apart from adjusting the horizontal and vertical settings as well as the acquisition depth for optimal signal quality for accurate analysis, provides easy analysis to manage multiple acquired waveforms.

This makes the PCI-SIG's SigTest EXE is used to analyze the acquired waveforms. The makes results of the analysis consistent with the SigTest post-capture analysis software used at PCI-SIG workshops for compliance testing.

The Option PCE3 and Option PCE4 TekExpress automation software provides flexibility in selecting data rates, voltage swing, presets, and the tests to run. It also provides the option to de-embed the effects of the channel and the test fixtures and provide an accurate representation of the signal at the pins as required by the specification.

All the analysis results are compiled in a PDF/HTML formatted report that can include pass/fail summary, eye diagrams, setup configuration, and user comments. The contents of the report can be customized to include information of interest such as append results and custom report generation based on test name/pass fail/equalization.

Switch Matrix automation

Switch Matrix application allows to configure and setup automated multi-lane testing using RF switch. The solution allows you to map each of the several transmitter signals and forward the selected input either to another relay or to the oscilloscope channel. Option SWX-PCE supports x12 and x16 lanes using Keithley and Gigatronics switches respectively, and enhances throughput and automated test speed.

Debug and validation

If a DUT or Add-In card fails any portion of the compliance test, the application includes a DPOJET-based debug and analysis tool kit customized for debug and validation of PCI Express interfaces.

The new jitter measurements introduced with PCIe Gen3 and Gen 4 provide separate limits for data dependent (DDJ) and uncorrelated deterministic jitter (UDJDD). It is important to separate DDJ (which can be compensated with transmitter and receiver equalization) and UDJDD (which can be caused by effects such as crosstalk and power supply noise).

Apart from the above Jitter measurements, Pulse Width Jitter (PWJ) is a new measurement that addresses the increased channel loss at 8 to 16 Gb/s. The purpose of the PWJ measurement is to ensure that lone bits meet minimum pulse width requirements. All new jitter measurements implement Q-scale extrapolation as defined in the base specification. Option PCE3 and Option PCE4 provide the complete set of PCI Express 3.0 and 4.0 Base Spec jitter measurements enabling silicon designers to verify that their silicon meets the base specification requirements.

Furthermore, the base specification requirements are defined at the pins of the transmitter. Before the measurements are computed the test channel must be de-embedded. De-embed filters can be easily created using the Tektronix Option SDLA64 Serial Data Link Analysis software and then quickly entered into the Option PCE3 and Option PCE4 base specification measurement setup and saved for future use. In addition to jitter, Option PCE3 and Option PCE4 also provide voltage, package loss, and transmitter equalization measurements.

Option PCE3 and Option PCE4 leverage the channel modeling and receiver equalization functionality of the Tektronix Option SDLA64 software to support CEM measurements. Unlike other solutions, Option PCE3 and Option PCE4 provide full visibility to the signal as it has been modified to embed the compliance channel and provide receiver equalization. Eye diagrams and measurements can be set up to visually see the results of channel embedding, CTLE application, and DFE. For example, when determining the optimal Rx Equalization settings (CTLE setting and DFE tap value) the resulting eye diagrams and measurements show the effects of post processing on the acquired signal. Compliance measurements can then be taken on the waveform.
