The 89HT0816AP Retimer Evaluation Board is designed to enable quick in-system testing of Renesas’s 8-lane, 8GTps, PCIe 3.0 Retimer IC product.
This board features an 8-lane PCIe connection from host through the Retimer to an end-point device installed in the 16-lane PCIe slot. The Evaluation Board is used by inserting it into a desktop PC or server, and then plugging an end point adapter card (SAS, Ethernet, graphics, etc.) into the 16-lane slot on top. Passive trace cards can be used to extend the data signals to emulate a planned system design. Note that the resulting card stack requires an open chassis test environment.
I2C and JTAG interfaces are provided for access to all receiver, transmitter, and other device configuration and status registers via Renesas’s Configuration Utility GUI for Windows. Software tools for signal eye capture are available.
