Hi Sanjib,

There are several manufacturers that make TLP generators.   It's a bit of an investment, but I believe that they can also be rented.    Another toolset that is gaining some popularity are ESD scanners.   These scanners use TLP like (square wave) pulses injected into ESD sensitive points.   One scanner manufacturer also offers a current scanning module that can generate a susceptibility map of a pcb, giving a visual representation of the current spreading on the board.

Thank u for a very useful information. Is there a tool that helps in performing TLP analysis much before going to the compliance testing, during design phase? Are there tools those could help in simulating TLP analysis for the ports prone to ESD?

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
