The PCI Express ecosystem is evolving in multiple directions in 2020. The established PCI Express® (PCIe®) 3.0 technology is deploying in new form factors, with new connector and electrical test requirements. Official PCIe 4.0 compliance testing at 16 Gb/s began in 2019, with complex calibration routines and advanced Link Equalization requirements. New devices with 32 Gb/s PCIe 5.0 capabilities are now in labs for characterization, while the PCIe 6.0 specification is already in active development.

Join PCI Express domain experts from Teledyne LeCroy and Anritsu to gain a deeper understanding of the electrical specifications and validation requirements, and how to test these new technologies with the most complete PCIe electrical test solutions available.
