Beijing, China, March 22, 2021 – Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: KEYS) announced that the company’s compliance test measurement instrument, the M8040A 64 Gbaud high-performance bit error rate tester (BERT), has successfully passed the PCI- SIG certified to perform PCI Express 4.0 (PCIe Gen 4) testing at 16 GT/s and 8 GT/s. So far, Keysight has two BERT systems certified by PCI-SIG, making important contributions to PCIe 4.0 and PCIe 3.0 technology testing. Keysight is an industry-renowned technology company dedicated to providing advanced design and verification solutions that help customers accelerate innovation and create a secure, connected world.

As the speed and bandwidth of serial bus technology continues to increase, test equipment manufacturers need to provide more powerful test tools. The Keysight BERT system enables accurate physical layer design verification for high-speed communications and multi-gigabit digital interfaces. The Keysight M8040A 64 Gbaud High Performance BERT As a PCI-SIG certified PCIe 4.0 receiver test BERT, it can not only test PCIe 5.0 (32 GT/s), but also explore the development path for the emerging PCIe 6.0 (64 GT/s) technology (Design choices are made by evaluating various technical approaches against a specified set of system parameters and objectives).

“We are very pleased that Keysight, as one of the leading test vendors, is actively participating in our official seminars to provide our members with effective compliance testing,” said Al Yanes, Chairman of PCI-SIG. The precious time, energy, and financial resources that go into our testing; and we also value Keysight’s consistent support for SIG activities, especially in pushing its equipment to be officially certified for conformance testing.”

“We are honored that the Keysight M8040A high-performance BERT is PCI-SIG certified for PCIe 4.0 receiver testing,” said Kailash Narayanan, vice president of Keysight’s Business Communications Group. of customers, the PCI Express standard is critical. As the industry looks to explore PCIe 6.0, we believe that passing the M8040A through PCIe 4.0 receiver test certification will increase customer confidence in currently available test tools, while also providing The development of next-generation technologies up to 32Gbaud PAM4 clears the hurdle.”

“PCI Express-based I/O technology is expected to dominate high-performance I/O interfaces, including accelerator interconnects such as Compute Express Link,” said Jim Pappas, director of technical programs at Intel Corporation. “Receiver and transmitter test from companies such as Keysight The solution will play a key role in the development, deployment and adoption of high-performance I/O technologies on future Intel platforms and across the industry.”

The PCI-SIG (earlier known as the Peripheral Component Interconnect Specialist Group) develops and manages the PCI bus specification. This specification is an industry standard for high-performance I/O interconnects used to transfer data between central processing units and peripheral devices. Currently, the PCI-SIG manages standards such as PCI, PCI-X®, and PCI Express.

The PCI-SIG continues to advance the development of the PCI standard to meet the strong demands of the industry. PCI-SIG supports members in developing high-quality, competitive products by conducting interoperability testing, providing technical support, and hosting seminars and industry events.
