Evaluation Board SDK for the 89H16NT16G2

The EB-LOGAN-19 Evaluation Board provides an evaluation platform for the PES24NT24G2 switch and for other members of this switch family including PES16NT16G2 and PES12NT12G2.
 
Detailed information related to configuration of number of ports and lanes in the switch device can be found in the Device User Manual and the Device Datasheet. The evaluation board, along with additional adapters and daughter boards provided by IDT, can be configured to test every possible combination of the number of lanes and ports offered by the switch. Advanced capabilities such as switch partitioning, NTB, DMA and local port clocking can be evaluated with the evaluation board. 
 
The EB-LOGAN-19 brings out all 24 lanes of the device to two Mezzanine connectors and two SAS connectors located close to the device - one connector per stack of 4  lanes. Various types of daughter cards (provided by IDT) can then be plugged into the Mezzanine  connectors to facilitate connectivity to one x8 or two x4 or four x2 or eight x1 link partners. Link partners may be plugged directly into these daughter cards or they can be connected to these daughter cards via SAS or SATA cables and a different board with PCIe slots known as the 12-PACK board (provided by IDT). Given that majority of the hosts / servers offer PCIe standard slots, IDT provides the necessary adapter cards that may be plugged into these host / server slots as well as the cables that connect such adapters to the daughter cards which in turn are plugged into the main evaluation board on which the IDT PCIe switch device is populated.
