The upcoming PCIe® 6.0 specification introduces Flow Control Unit (FLIT) encoding, which enables the specification to provide low latency with high efficiency. FLIT mode is adopted for the PCIe 6.0 architecture because error correction needs to operate on fixed sized packets.

At PCI-SIG, we take pride in ensuring that our specifications operate without a hitch. However, sometimes PCI Express developers need to submit Engineering Change Requests (ECRs) to update parts of the specification so that PCIe integrated products can reach their optimal functionality.

PCI Express® – also known as PCIe – used to get a bad rap for being power hungry on servers and PCs. But I’m happy to say that this is no longer the case. Are you aware that PCIe today is extremely power efficient with built-in low power features?
