Teledyne LeCroy Announces Enterprise Decoding for NVMe Protocol Analysis
Jun 23 15
Teledyne LeCroy has extended the decoding and analysis capabilities on their PCI Express® Summit™ protocol analyzer product family to support the new Trusted Computing Group (TCG) security and Precision Time Measurement (PTM) messaging features, utilized in Internet of Things (IoT) and PCIe SSD storage technologies. IoT based products demand high security and low latency to ensure efficient machine to machine (M2M) communication. Teledyne LeCroy's Summit protocol analyzers can determine if these and other features are correctly implemented, and when problems are identified the systems can help track the root cause of failure. These new features are now supported in Teledyne LeCroy's PCIe® Protocol Suite 7.34. Data protection for a broad range of devices is the primary purpose of these standards. Authentication, secured attribute-value storage, disk encryption/decryption, backup, time stamping, and event logging are some of the applications that are addressed through the TCG security specification. Developers interested in ensuring that TCG encryption/decryption mechanisms are properly integrated into their products will find that Teledyne LeCroy protocol analysis fully supports the TCG specification. Method calls such as invoking UID and method UID within a trusted command can be decoded, and examined in context with the NVM Express and PCI Express bus infrastructure. Having this information accessible expedites difficult verification and troubleshooting projects. Precision Time Measurement (PTM), a supported feature in the PCI-SIG® PCI Express 3.0 specification, defines a new protocol of timing measurement and synchronization messages for time-sensitive media and server applications such as industrial automation, instrumentation, geological sciences, telecomm synchronization and synchronized audio/video systems among others. PTM enables systems that require high precision timing the ability to monitor and track the time of transactions with sub-microsecond timing accuracy while accelerating server application performance. Teledyne LeCroy's Summit protocol analyzers support the decoding of PTM message packets giving users a clear picture of PTM transactions on the PCI Express bus. Viewing the communication between PTM-enabled devices can help discover performance and implementation problems that can't be seen by software debugging tools. PTM support has also been extended to the Summit Z3-16 exerciser, enabling users to emulate PTM functionality with the exerciser in either host or device mode, and to control PTM message packet generation and error recovery. The combination of analyzer and exerciser gives users an essential test tool suite for PTM development and test. PCIe Protocol Suite 7.34 is available in mid-June.
Teledyne LeCroy Releases New PCIe Protocol Suite 7.34
Jun 1 15
Teledyne LeCroy has released its new PCIe Protocol Suite 7.34 which adds extensive enhancements for PCIe-based storage analysis on the Summit PCI Express Protocol Analyzer product line. Teledyne LeCroy is the main supplier of protocol analyzers and exercisers to companies developing PCIe-based SSD and similar storage products using the new NVMe and SATA Express high-speed serial data standards. Protocol analyzers and exercisers are used by developers and validation engineers to directly record and examine data traffic on serial data communication links between devices and systems. This equipment enables SSD developers to reduce debug and test schedules, lower engineering development costs on new products and meet aggressive time-to-market requirements. As storage developers make the transition from legacy SAS and SATA protocol-based SSDs to the more advanced NVMe and SATA Express technologies, they are encountering limitations in available design and test tools including limited trace recording times and a lack of standardized analysis reports for PCIe-based storage. These two issues are significant for the newer technologies of NVMe and SATA Express due to the following: High performance SSD testing can require recording data traffic beyond a few minutes. This is not possible for many protocol analyzers due to limitations in their recording architectures. While some test tool suppliers have claimed support for the NVMe and SATA Express protocols, support for these protocols has remained minimal. This has hampered developer's productivity due to the use of reporting systems designed for the older technologies, which are not optimized for quality testing on NVMe and SATA Express products. Along with the creation of standardized and detailed analysis reports for NVMe and SATA Express, the newly-released Summit T34 protocol analyzer, specifically targeted at PCIe storage applications, now supports long trace recordings with a new NVMe Enhanced Mode. The Summit T34 can also be configured with up to 64 GB of trace recording memory. NVMe Enhanced Mode builds on and optimizes the existing deep buffer memory to allow users long recording time capability. Depending on the speed of the DUT (Device Under Test), the recording time can be maximized to up to several hours for a single trace capture. This feature is useful for tasks such as measuring performance or determining how well your Queue handling algorithms are functioning. An example of the metrics that are now available include the ability to measure the NVMe queue distribution over a sustained period of time. The ability to gather queue behavior for long periods helps driver and OS developers fine tune their applications and balance queue loads for optimized product performance.
UltraSoC and Teledyne LeCroy Collaborate to Unify Debug and Validation for System Designers
May 19 15
UltraSoC and Teledyne LeCroy announce that they will collaborate on debug and validation technologies to reduce time-to-market and overall development costs in a wide range of high-tech industries, from automotive and computer peripheral manufacture, to emerging IoT applications. Teledyne LeCroy, delivers a range of hardware and software tools that enables engineers to verify, test, debug, and validate electronic system designs. UltraSoC provides silicon IP for data acquisition and analysis that can be baked-in to the complex semiconductor devices (System on Chip or SoC) at the heart of such designs. The combination of Teledyne LeCroy's ability to provide a high-level view of system behavior and UltraSoC's capabilities to offer visibility deep within the SoC creates a powerful toolset that allows the engineer to quickly and instinctively understand the system's operation, spot problems and devise solutions. These joint developments will benefit designers of a broad range of end-products. For example, hard disk manufacturers could combine protocol analysis of the external system-level interfaces, such as SATA, gathered via one or more Teledyne LeCroy instruments, with data gathered internally to the drive's controller chip by UltraSoC's UltraDebug technology. This capability will enable system developers to track information, including time sensitive events, as it flows from one side of an interface to another and correlate it with internal software execution.
