REGISTER EARLY: In case registration exceeds our testing capacities, we have established a reasonable cap for each product type and revision. If these caps are reached during online registration, we will put any additional products on a waiting list. Products will be removed from the waiting list and added as a registered product if possible, based on the order of their attempted registration and will be notified as early as the week after the registration deadline of Thursday, March 28, 2024.

COST: Attendance at this Members Only event is free. Please note that, if you do not bring your product to the event or your product registration is not canceled by 5pm (PT) on Thursday, March 28, 2024, you will be invoiced a $250 no show fee. This event is non-hosted. Participants pay for their own travel, food, and hotel expenses. Lunch is provided for attendees Monday through Friday. 

REGISTRATION DEADLINE & TESTING SCHEDULES: We do not accept onsite product registrations so you MUST register your product prior to the registration cut-off date of 5pm (PT) on Thursday, March 28, 2024. Your testing schedule will be created based off of the information you provide for your registered product, so please be sure that any changes to your product’s information are completed prior to 5pm (PT) on Thursday, March 28, 2024. No product detail changes are allowed after registration has closed as we will be distributing anonymized testing schedules in advance of the event.

Advantages Offered to Members:
Bring your PCI Express based system and/or card to participate in the compliance and interoperability testing to ensure compatibility with other systems and components. With testing you will be able to analyze and fix problems before your components enter the field, thus saving your company valuable time and resources. This compliance workshop will also offer valuable networking opportunities with your fellow PCI Express engineers. This is a free event for members, and does require membership in the PCI-SIG to attend.

PCI Express 5.0 – Official Testing
PCI Express 5.0 Retimer FYI Testing  
PCI Express 4.0 – Official Testing
PCI Express 4.0 Retimer – Official Testing 
PCI Express U.2/SFF-8639 (8 GT/s) – Official Testing

Starting with Compliance Workshop #125 (July 31 – Aug 4, 2023) the PCI-SIG has added the CV for system test for PCIe 4.0 systems as an FYI test. This test is already FYI for PCIe 5.0 system in preparation for this test to become mandatory with the PCIe 6.0 Compliance Program. To aid in preparation for this test the FYI CV for system test for PCIe 4.0 system has been added to the program to also allow PCIe 4.0 system vendors to prepare for this mandatory test when the PCIe 6.0 Compliance Program is activated. Vendors with a PCIe 4.0 system at a Compliance Workshop must attend this test to the best of their ability. Since this is an FYI test, the result of the test does not affect qualification for IL listing. For more information about this test please refer to the PCIe 4.0 and PCIe 5.0 MOIs and the Compliance Workshop summary.
