As PCI Express® (PCIe®) specifications continue to double the transfer rates of previous generations, the technology can address a variety of needs for data-demanding applications. However, along with the progression of PCIe specifications, challenges like signal integrity and channel insertion loss arise as well. Retimers are mixed signal analog/digital devices that are protocol-aware and have the ability to fully recover data, extract the embedded clock and retransmit a fresh copy of the data using a clean clock. These devices are fully defined in the PCI Express base specification, including compliance testing, and are used to combat issues that PCI Express faces.
In this PCI-SIG® hosted webinar, Kurt Lender of Intel and Casey Morrison of Astera Labs will offer solutions to conquer signal integrity and channel insertion loss challenges, explain the diagnostic capabilities of retimer technology and more.
