PCIe 6.0 Preliminary FYI Workshop

​Dates: June 3 –  7, 2024 - Registration now closed!
​Registration Deadline: May 9, 2024 5 PM PDT
Location: Embassy Suites San Francisco Airport, South San Francisco, California 

Important Logistics:

  • The primary goal of this event is to assist in the development of the PCIe 6.0 Compliance Program. Testing will focus primarily on the electrical tests at (Tx, Rx and LEQ) 64 GT/s only. Link Transaction, Configuration Space and interop tests are available but these will be limited in test coverage.
    • To participate, your Device must:
      • Support 64GT/s
      • Implement full link and transaction layer support at 64 GT/s
      • Be capable of PCIe 6.0 protocol
      • Be able to generate all presets Q0-Q10 and other auxiliary compliance test signals ( such as the 52 UI compliance jitter and toggle pattern)
        • Preference to accepting the Tx Compliance signal from the CBB and CLB
      • Support Loopback
    • There is a preference that your device:
      • Implement a fully functional LTSSM
      • Be able to enter loopback via recovery
    • Additional requirements may be announced 
    • Any DUT that isn’t able to meet the above requirements will be a lower priority device for correlation tests and undergo reduced testing
  • Your product must support PCIe 6.0 (64GT/s) in order to attend this event. Please note that products tested during this event will not be eligible for the Integrators List. 
  • Each registration may have an additional two attendees accompany the product, up to a maximum of three onsite personnel. NO onsite registrations will be allowed during the event. 

The PCI-SIG is conducting correlation measurements during this workshop. To facilitate this correlation work we ask that you present the same physical copy for all electrical test and please refrain from making updates to your devices between electrical tests. Since this correlation work will take a major amount of time during this workshop we ask that if possible you bring multiple copies of the same DUT. Your help in providing multiple copies to complete this correlation effort is appreciated.

Please be advised that for this workshop we will try and honor your admittance to this workshop on the usual first come first served basis. With the correlation efforts going on at this workshop, we may change this policy based on the distribution of Add-In Cards and Systems being registered.
