Wednesday, June 22

3:30 p.m. - 4:30 p.m.

Extending PCIe 8GT/s Links Across Lossy Media

Hsinho Wu, systems development engineer with National's High-Speed Data Path Group, will discuss how the new 8 Gbps data rate of the PCI Express Gen-3 specification impacts signal integrity and limits reach due to higher channel losses. Wu will highlight techniques for extending the PCIe 1.0/2.0/3.0 link reach while maintaining protocol compliance. Simulations and lab measurements will be presented to show the performance improvement.

National PCIe Gen-3 Repeaters Demonstrate Interoperability

National will demonstrate interoperability between its DS80PCI800 PCI Express Gen-3 repeater and LeCroy's Summit Z3-16 PCI Express Protocol Exerciser system. This includes Gen-3 link initialization process, and dynamic adaptation between PCI Express data rates and lane widths supported by National's repeater device.

National PCIe Repeaters Demonstrate 3x the Reach of PCIe Gen-3 Standard

Industry leading signal conditioning capability of DS80PCI800 will be demonstrated over a variety of interconnects representing real-world server and storage applications supporting the PCIe Gen-3 standard. With 36 dB of input equalization and 12 dB of output de-emphasis, the DS80PCI800 increases the standard reach by 3x.
