This presentation provides a review and updates on signal integrity (SI) analysis that improve your engineering intuition when dealing with PCI-X interfaces. PCI Express 5.0 technology is one of the most advanced computer I/O standards to be conceived for the high-volume manufacturing marketplace. This webinar will highlight for you some of the most notable physical layer channel characterization using new Physical Layer Test System (PLTS) software. We will also show you innovative simulation techniques using PathWave Advanced Design System (ADS) Software which can help you with device characterization and validation flow. The use of IBIS-AMI models and bit-by-bit simulations which provide you with non-linear equalization blocks that will help you to accurately predict your system’s overall performance.


1. Understanding of PCI Express technology requirements.
2. Knowledge of S-parameter matrices and conversion.
3. Understand simulation techniques for PCIe device characterization and validation.
