The PCI-SIGĀ® started “fyi”-testing of cards and motherboards according to the CEM-spec during workshops in April 2011. As preparation for official compliance testing, PCIe rev. 3 test tools, supplied by the PCI-SIG, this website will discuss the essential calibration method of the stress signal for receiver testing.

The webcast will:

  • teach how to test receiver compliance of PCI Express 3.0 add-in cards and motherboards according to the CEM spec of the PCI-SIG
  • explain the new receiver test approach and its challenges
  • discuss best practices from recent PCI-SIG events
  • explain how Agilent’s test equipment, like the J-BERT N4903B, the N4916B de-emphasis signal converter and Infiniium 90000 X-series, can be used to ensure proper link training and accurate stressed jitter and stressed voltage receiver testing

Who should view this webcast:
R&D and Design Verification Engineers doing physical layer test and/or characterization on receivers of PCIe3 add-in-cards and motherboards.

Registrants who completely fill out the feedback form by January 27, 2012 will be eligible to win one of two $75 Amazon.com gift certificates. Drawing only open to residents of the 50 United States and Canada (except Quebec). Official rules.
