Keysight Technologies, Inc. is participating as a gold suite vendor in the industry's first PCI-SIG® Compliance Workshop to help advance standards that drive interoperability between PCI Express® (PCIe®) 5.0 devices.
The event, hosted by PCI-SIG, is scheduled to be held from April 18 to 21, 2022 in Burlingame, California. PCI-SIG is a consortium that owns and manages PCI specifications as open industry standards and defines industry standard I/O (input/output) specifications consistent with the needs of its members.
The PCIe 5.0 specification, a high-speed serial interface standard used in computer servers and graphics cards, supports greater data traffic and bandwidth requirements in data centers. The PCI-SIG Compliance Workshop enables the industry to advance standardized test procedures, software tools and fixtures for PCIe technology-capable devices supporting data speeds of up to 32 giga transfers per second (GT/s). Consistency in PCIe specification test standards is vital to vendors of computer servers, end point devices, switches, storage devices and compute engines as it enables them to confidently launch PCIe 5.0 technology designs that interoperate as expected with other vendors' products.
