Standards abound in our world of design, and they can be a blessing, a mystery, or a time sink. This panel of experts affiliated with the Signal Integrity Journal takes a careful look at the challenges of implementing the standards that relate to what’s “inside the box,” specifically PCI Express and DDR5, from simulation, to test, to hands on building. Join us for a spirited discussion and bring your questions.
