Entries in PCI-SIG (2)


PCI Express back on track with latest specifications 

Richard Solomon and Scott Knowlton are waiting for me in the lobby of a well-known Tel-Aviv hotel overseeing the sunlit Mediterranean Sea.  

Richard SolomonSolomon, vice chair of the PCI Special Interest Group (PCI-SIG), and Knowlton, its marketing working group co-chair, are visiting Israel to deliver a training event addressing the PCI Express (PCIe) high-speed serial bus standard. 

With over 750 member companies, PCI-SIG conducts several training events around the world each year. The locations are chosen where there is a concentration of companies and engineers undertaking PCIe designs. “These are chip, board and systems architects,” says Solomon. 

PCI-SIG has hit its stride after a prolonged quiet period. The group completed the PCIe 4.0 standard in 2017, seven years after it launched PCIe 3.0. The PCIe 4.0 doubles the serial bus speed and with the advent of PCIe 5.0, it will double again.

PCIe 3.0 and USB 3.0 to link mobile chip

  • Both protocols to run on the MIPI Alliance's M-PHY transceiver
  • Goal is to exploit existing PCIe and USB driver and application software while benefitting from the low power M-PHY
  • OcuLink cable based on PCIe 3.0 promises up to 32 Gigabit
