Webinar: PCI Express® 5.0 & the Road to PAM-4 – presented by Anritsu & GRL

April 14th, 2020 by Brissa Ortega

Granite River Labs (GRL) and Anritsu invite you to join us for a free 1-hour live webinar to gain a greater understanding of PCI Express® 5.0 test methodologies, and discuss anticipated signal integrity-related design and test challenges as the standard moves to PAM-4 signaling, including power dissipation, signal-to-noise ratio, reflections, and cost/performance.

Date:   Tuesday, April 28, 2020
Time:   9:00 AM – 10:00 AM Pacific Time


Webinar Overview:

PCI Express 5.0 operates at 32 GT/s with NRZ signaling, a huge challenge. In 2019, the PCI-SIG® announced that PCIe® 6.0 will double the data rate to 64 GT/s using PAM-4 (Pulse Amplitude Modulation with 4 levels) encoding. With a targeted specification release in 2021, PCIe 6.0 can be expected to present unique challenges for successful design implementation.
