Features
The Keysight N5393F/G PCI Express 4.0 electrical transmitter (TX) test software represents the
latest PCI Express TX test tool that supports PCI Express 4.0 with speeds of up 16 GT/s. Below
is a list of a few of the key features of this software package.
–– PCIe® 4.0 BASE TX measurements including uncorrelated TJ, DJ, and PWJ, pseudo
package loss and other parameters defined in the 0.7 version of the PCI Express BASE
specification.
–– BASE spec TX measurements are supported at 16 GT/s, 8 GT/s, 5 GT/s, and 2.5 GT/s.
–– Legacy support for PCI Express 3.x, 2.x, and 1.1 compliance tests (BASE and CEM).
–– PCI 4.0 reference clock measurements as defined in v0.7 of the PCIe 4.0 BASE spec.
–– Support for U.2 (SFF-8639) PCIe 3.0 CEM measurements for endpoint and root complex
devices (8 GT/s, 5 GT/s, and 2.5 GT/s.
–– Automated DUT control for endpoint and root complex testing using a Keysight 81150A or
81160A Pulse Function Arbitrary Noise Generator.
–– New Workshop Compliance mode for rapid PCI SIG-style compliance testing including
Sigtest HTIML report files.
–– Support for de-embedding of test fixtures, high speeds switches and cables 1.
–– Support for Keysight and Bitifeye high speed switch networks to automate testing of
multi-lane DUTs 2.
–– Test setup wizard for ease-of-use.
–– Pass/fail margin analysis.
–– Two-port (explicit clock and data) supported for motherboard signal quality testing.
–– Support for both full-swing and low-power, half-swing devices.
–– Supported on Keysight Z-Series, V-Series, Q-Series, X-Series, and 90000A real time
oscilloscopes. Also supported for 2.5 G measurements only on the S-Series oscilloscope
(See ordering information).
With the PCI Express N5393F/G electrical test software, you can use the same oscilloscope
you use for everyday debugging to perform automated testing and margin analysis based on
the PCI-SIG®-specified tests.
PCI Express 4.0 testing
The PCI Express 4.0 specification elevates the data rate for PCIe 4.0 devices to 16 GT/s. This
results in a maximum throughput of approximately 15.8 Gb/s per lane (taking into account
encoding overhead). PCIe 4.0 shares many elements in common with PCIe 3.0 including
128/130 bit encoding. Nevertheless, at 16 GT/s, the signal is significantly attenuated by a
typical FR4 channel which increases the importance of ensuring your design has the best signal
integrity possible. With Keysight oscilloscopes, you are ensured of using instruments with the
lowest noise floor in the industry which helps to ensure you will perform your compliance tests
with the greatest margin possible.
1. Requires the purchase of the optional N5465B Keysight InfiniiSim Waveform Transformation Toolset for
Infiniium Oscilloscopes.
2. Requires the purchase of N5393F-7FP software license (Z-Series, V-Series, Q-Series, X-Series) or N5393G7FP (S-Series).

Bandwidth requirements for PCI Express 4.0
PCI Express operates at 2.5 GT/s, 5 GT/s, 8 GT/s and 16 GT/s. The two tables below
provide guidelines on the minimum bandwidth and sample rate recommended for PCI
Express Transmitter measurements. In addition to transmitter measurements, phase jitter
measurements of the PCIe 100 MHz reference clock also call for a minimum sample rate used
to measure the clock as is also shown below. Use this information to help you select the proper
oscilloscope for your specific requirements. Also remember that receiver testing requires
adequate bandwidth to ensure the most accurate calibration of your bit error ratio tester
(BERT). Automated receiver calibration using the N5990A Automated Compliance and Device
Characterization tool and the Keysight M8020A J-BERT high performance BERT includes
integration and control of Keysight high performance oscilloscopes for fast BERT calibration for
receiver stressed jitter and stressed voltage testing.

Ordering Information
You can order the N5393F PCIe 4.0 Test software as a factory installed option, as a user
installed license for an existing oscilloscope or as a server based license. This software will also
support legacy compliance testing for PCIe 3.x, 2.x and 1.1 in addition to supporting PCIe 4.0.
If you’re only testing at PCIe Gen3 speeds (or slower) you can order the license for PCie 1.x, 2.x,
and 3.x TX testing only. If you already have an N5393D license and want PCIe 4.0 TX testing
capabilities, an upgrade license is available. To test PCI Express at 2.5G only on the S-Series
oscilloscope, order the appropriate N5393G license. To enable switch matrix support for your
N5393F/G software, an appropriate license is required. See the tables below.

The N5393F/G requires that the E2688A serial data analysis package also be licensed.
1. The S-Series oscilloscope is limited to a maximum bandwidth of 8 GHz which is sufficient bandwidth only for 2.5 GT/s (PCIe 1.x) transmitter measurements.
Transmitter measurements for 5GT/s (PCIe 2.x), 8 GTs (PCIe 3.x) require a minimum scope bandwidth of 12 GHz; however, PCIe clock phase jitter measurements can be made with the S-Series oscilloscope and are thus enabled with this license. 5GT/s and 8GT/s transmitter measurements are not enabled on
the S-Series oscilloscope as a higher minimum bandwidth is required.
