TLA7SA00 Logic Protocol Analyzer for PCI Express

A Complete Solution for Physical through Protocol Layer Debug.

The TLA7SA00 Series logic protocol analyzer modules provide an innovative approach to PCI Express validation that spans all layers of the protocol from the physical layer to the transaction layer. Feature rich software provides improved information density for viewing statistical summary and protocol analysis using innovative Transaction and Summary Profile windows. Hardware capabilities including hardware acceleration, OpenEYE, ScopePHY, and FastSYNC provide fast access to data and helps shorten the time it takes to build confidence in the test system. Powerful trigger and filtering capabilities provide the ability to quickly focus on the data of interest. A complete suite of probing solutions targeted for various form factors and applications.

Record Length

4 GB, 160M Symbols per Input



OpenEYE EqualizationYou can probe anywhere on the bus thanks to OpenEYE Technology with automatic tuning equalization circuitry
ScopePHY ProbingQuickly gain confidence that your setup is correct and your PCI signal meets probe input requirements by routing any signal directly to a high bandwidth Oscilloscope
FastSYNCGuaranteed resynchronization time to be <12 FTS1 (PCIe2) or <4 FTS2 (PCIe3) regardless of the Electrical Idle time for Advanced Power State Management performance
Data Storage and HW Accelerated SearchGet access to data and execute searches on any pattern in seconds regardless of record length
Comprehensive Trigger SystemQuickly build a trigger definition to trigger on the most elusive PCIe events occurring on Link
Innovative Data ViewsGet unprecedented visibility into your data from Protocol to Physical layer
  • Observe and Analyze Link based behavior of protocol elements (transactions, packets, fields, ordered sets) with the Transaction Window
  • Get high-ground visibility of system issues involving flow control with Unique Bird’s EyE View integrated into the Transaction window
  • Get a data rich statistics based view of all PCIe protocol elements through summary Profile Window
  • Get insight into physical layer details with the unique Listing window showing packet details as well as lane by lane symbol decode
MultiBus CorrelationGet full system visibility of multiple busses (DDR, PCIe, QPI, etc) as well as other system level activity through the legacy power of the Logic Analyzer functionality
