Protocol Analysis and Test

Protocol Analysers, Testers and Test Software

GCH are the UK and Ireland Distributer for Viavi Xgig products which offer a class leading range of analysis and test solutions for the protocols listed below.  These solutions all operate from the same software interface, including Expert analysis, that looks for anomalies and errors in the data collected.  Multiple systems can be cascaded together to give a time correlated view of any combination of the protocols.  In addition the systems can be used by multiple users at the same time depending on port/channel availability.


Support for PCIe and NVMe up to Gen5 is currently available for both analysis and errror injection.  There are three solutions available, a Gen3 system that supports up to 8 lanes  with  Gen4 and Gen5  systems that supports up to 16 lanes, supporting all the previous generations.  All solutions have multiple interposer options.
