The N8816A Infiniium PCI Express 3.0 protocol analyzer software from Agilent Technologies (Santa Clara, CA) provides the ability to perform 128/130 bit and 8b/10b based packet decoding via a patented (patent pending) technique to capture and display serial data synchronized with the analog view of traffic of a serial data stream. Decode is displayed directly on the analog waveform as well as in the decode list with associated time and index displays. In conjunction with the decode list, using the multi-grid waveform display you can simultaneously display analog bi-directional waveforms with corresponding decode listings. The software helps engineers identify protocol errors and simultaneously analyze analog waveform characteristics.
