Z01t Odin

A 6-port 1 Gbps/100Mbps test module for testing Automotive Ethernet ECUs


The Z01t Odin is a 6-port 1 Gbps/100Mbps Ethernet test module designed for Automotive Ethernet test applications.

The module has native 1000BASE-T1 and 100BASE-T1 interfaces. Based on Xena’s advanced architecture, the Z01t Odin is the obvious choice for testing Automotive Ethernet up to 1G at Layers 2-3.

The module is available for the 4U 12-slot B720/2400 chassis and the easy-to-transport 1U XenaCompact chassis. It comes complete with a full range of test software (as part of the Xena Value Pack), including predefined test suites for RFC 2544, and comprehensive test automation options.

    3 x RJ45 (100/1000M)

  5. Port statistics (counter size: 64 bits)

    • Link state, FCS errors, pause frames, ARP/PING, error injections, training packet
    • All traffic: RX and TX Mbit/s, packets/s, packets, bytes
    • Traffic w/o test payload: RX and TX Mbit/s, packets/s, packets, bytes
  6. Adjustable Inter Frame Gap (IFG)

    Supported (configurable IP and MAC address per port)

  9. Field upgradeable

    System is fully field upgradeable to latest product releases (FPGA images and software)

  10. Histogram statistics (counter size: 64 bits)

    Two real-time histograms per port. Each histogram can measure one of RX/TX packet length, IFG, jitter,
    or latency distribution for all traffic, a specific stream, or a filter

  11. Tx disable

    Enable/disable of copper link

  12. IGMPv2 multicast join/leave

    IGMPv2 continuous multicast join, with configurable repeat interval

  13. Oscillator characteristics

    • Initial Accuracy is 3 ppm
    • Frequency drift over 1st year: ± 3 ppm (over 15 years: ± 15 ppm)
    • Temperature Stability: ± 20 ppm (Total Stability is ± 35 ppm)


  1. Number of transmit streams per port

    256 (wire-speed). Each stream can generate millions of traffic flows through the use of field modifiers

  2. Test payload insertion per stream

    Wire-speed packet generation with timestamps, sequence numbers, and data integrity signature optionally inserted into each packet.

  3. Stream statistics (counter size: 64 bits)

    TX Mbit/s, packets/s, packets, bytes, FCS error, Pause

  4. Bandwidth profiles

    Burst size and density can be specified. Uniform and bursty bandwidth profile streams can be interleaved

  5. Field modifiers

    16-bit header field modifiers with inc, dec, or random mode. Each modifier has configurable bit-mask, repetition, min, max, and step parameters. 6 modifiers per stream

  6. Packet length controls

    Fixed, random, butterfly, and incrementing packet length distributions from 56 to 16384 bytes

  7. Packet payloads

    Repeated user specified 1 to 18B pattern, an 8-bit incrementing pattern

  8. Error generation

    Undersize length (56B min) and oversize length (16384 max.) packet lengths, injection of sequence, misorder, payload integrity, and FCS errors

  9. TX packet header support and RX autodecodes

    Ethernet, Ethernet II, VLAN, ARP, IPv4, IPv6, UDP, TCP, LLC, SNAP, GTP, ICMP, RTP, RTCP, STP, MPLS, PBB, or fully specified by user

  10. Pause Frames

    Responds to incoming pause and PFC (Priority-based Flow Control) frames

  11. Packet scheduling modes

    • Normal (stream interleaved mode) – standard scheduling mode, precise rates, minor variation in packet inter-frame gap.
    • Strict Uniform – new scheduling mode, with 100% uniform packet inter-frame gap, minor deviation from configured rates.
    • Sequential packet scheduling (sequential stream scheduling). Streams are scheduled continuously in sequential order, with configurable number of packets per stream.
    • Burst. Packets in a stream are organized in bursts. Bursts from active streams form a burst group. The user specifies time from start of one burst group till start of next burst group.

  2. Automatic detection of test payload for received packets

    Real-time reporting of statistics and latency, loss, payload integrity, sequence error, and mis-order error checking
