PCI SIG (peripheral component interconnect special interest group) adapted the ccICN (component contribution integrated crosstalk noise) for PCIe CEM (card electromechanical) specification in limiting the connector crosstalk for 32Gbps NRZ (non-return to zero). The usage resolved issues and limitations of the traditional methodology based upon the limit line-based specification. When PCIe 6.0 utilizes the PAM-4 modulation scheme, the ccICN is generalized for component crosstalk assessment for PAM-N (pulse-amplitude modulation-N levels). In this paper, we introduce the generalized ccICN methodology and validate.


This paper introduces the generalized ccICN for the PAM-N signaling, which is a metric to capture crosstalk noise at a receiver when a component within a channel creates crosstalk.
