P.H.D. PCI 2
No More Swapping

Troubleshooting systems can be a time consuming and tedious process without the right test equipment and trial and error methods such as swapping components doesn’t guarantee that the problem has been resolved and won’t reoccur. P.H.D. PCI2 solves this problem by quickly & accurately isolating hardware issues. Troubleshooting a computer that refuses to boot or show any display is no longer a problem when using PHD PCI 2.

Not a POST Card but an Advanced Bootable Diagnostic Plug-in Card

Unlike P.O.S.T. cards that merely display POST error codes, P.H.D. PCI2 is an actual diagnostic card that performs a series of dynamic pc diagnostics to verify proper operation of system components. P.H.D. PCI2 is a single power-packed advanced diagnostic tool integrating Flash firmware, memory, video and other circuitry to enable the card to boot and test seemingly "dead" motherboards. PHD PCI2 is capable of running complete system diagnostics on a PCI compliant system even if memory, BIOS, keyboard, external boot devices(i.e. USB, CDROM or Hard Drive) and video graphics card are dead or absent.

"Heal your PC? Ask the Doctor! 

Find out how PHD PCI 2 diagnostic tool will help you to detect failures in Minutes"

Complete Assessment in 5 Minutes

Simply insert the PHD PCI2 into any Intel compatible x86 motherboard and turn power on. Within the first few seconds a technician can determine a stuck Reset line, bad power supply, or defective/incompatible memory. Within 5 minutes PHD PCI 2 will provide a complete system assessment on screen pinpointing defective hardware components. With the flick of 1 switch, P.H.D.  PCI 2 will perform complete extended diagnostic testing on both core and peripheral hardware. PHD PCI2 test card will quickly detect errors in minutes NOT hours.

Build/Ship with Confidence

No longer will PC manufacturers of all sizes and applications, have to be concerned about defective or DOA(Dead On Arrival) computers. Implementing P.H.D. PCI2 into current QA production and manufacturing lines will dramatically reduce NTF/NDF (No Trouble / Defect Found) RMAs and service calls. System Builders can quickly Burn-In/Age systems using P.H.D. PCI’s automated and unattended Burn-In function assuring quality and reliability of PC P.H.D. PCI 2components.

Proven Technology

P.H.D. PCI2 loads from an onboard FLASH ROM and does not require any external booting devices or operating system. An operating system free environment eliminates any conflicts or interference from drivers, TSR’s and other items from the software layer that may occur during testing and provides a clean environment for precise and accurate testing. With industry-proven and proprietary technology, P.H.D. PCI2 is the single solution for any System Designer, Manufacturer, or Service and Repair shop.

Feature Highlights - P.H.D. PCI 2


Standard Diagnostic Mode
Standard Diagnostic mode

Performs component level motherboard testing utilizing direct hardware-to-hardware communication and displays simple PASS or FAIL results on the system monitor. This mode is used to run tests on a system that successfully completes POST (i.e. the system is capable of displaying a screen when power is on). Supports the latest Multi-Core Intel Xeon, 2nd Generation Core i7, AMD Operteron & Phenom II-X6 based systems.

Extended Diagnostic Mode


Extended Diagnostic mode

Extended Diagnostics provide an easy-to-use, menu-driven diagnostic, capable of executing proprietary core-level tests on the system and peripherals including – Memory, CPU, Motherboard, Storage Drives, Network, I/O Ports and much more.

Forced Start Diagnostic modeDead forced diagnostic mode


P.H.D. PCI2's Forced Start Mode is used to run component-level diagnostics on Pentium-D and older systems that do not successfully complete POST (i.e. the system is not capable, or is intermittently capable, of being booted), including systems that:


    Appear totally Dead
    Hang or freeze during POST
    Intermittently fails to complete POST
    Have no installed RAM or video adapter

Exclusive only to PHD PCI2, the card can initialize the system on its own and perform diagnostics independent of system BIOS. The main purpose of this mode is to assist you in isolating whatever components are failing and preventing the system from booting. PHD can easily diagnose problems with malfunctioning systems that cannot be isolated by software utilities or other testing methods that require much of the system to be functional and possibly the operating to be loaded. It will be quickly evident how much time and money you will save by using PHD to perform all your system troubleshooting.

Critical Onboard LED IndicatorsCritical Onboard LED Indicators

PCI Clock, Reset & Power Supply LED indicators provide a quick and easy method of determining critical hardware functionality such as a Stuck Reset Line, Out of Tolerance Power Supply or Dead PCI Clock.

Measure Temperature

Temperature and Voltage Monitoring

Temperature & Voltage measurement can be monitored using onboard sensor circuitry. Voltages are tested to within ±5% and temperature is measured in Fahrenheit and Celsius scales simultaneously. External temperature probes are optional available.
