Verify if a device can stand protocol variations

Keywords:testcards  System Validation Package  PCI 

Validating servers and workstations that contain various I/O systems, various peripherals and high and low-speed devices, has become a sophisticated task. If you are a validation engineer, you have to ensure that server products can stand all possible protocol variations, that corner cases are covered and that the testing stays within reasonable limits.

This article discusses a solution which combines testcards and software running on the system under test, the System Validation Package (SVP). This application note aims to achieve the following:
- To show how to set up and control several Agilent testcards to simulate PCI or PCI-X application-realistic system traffic.
- To show how to analyse occurred protocol rule violations or data-compare errors.

To make the test setup easier, the SVP provides several ready-torun tests to put particular data paths in I/O systems under stress in a controlled and predictabl way. In this application note, the operating principles of the SVP are introduced by checking the availability/readability of the system memory.
