Achieving PCI-e Compliance: Getting It Right the First Time

June 14, 2019

Thoroughly analyzing and testing electromagnetic effects of high-speed PCB interconnects as well as component packages for optimal signal integrity performance is essential to create technology that can be produce quickly and accurately.  When designing to an industry interface standard, like PCI Express (PCI-e), there are sets of measured signal integrity “compliance checks’ that must be met to guarantee the correct operation of the interface.

The PCI-e protocol is complex and to meet PCI-e compliance for the electrical category of the Physical Layer, several tests must be run encompassing several categories. This e-book will provide an overview of these categories, why they are important, what measurements are needed, and any applicable tips/tricks to help you be successful.
