Richard has been talking about how long it’s been since he’s posted. I have to say, it’s been forever since I’ve posted a blog and I’ll need to work on that in 2019. Yes, I’m still alive and kicking and so much has happened since I’ve posted. More on that in another post.
The PCIe 5.0 specification from PCI-SIG is now at 0.9 (which Richard mentioned in his last post). Also, in Richard’s last post, he was showing eye diagrams from an early PCIe 5.0 prototype that we had. I’m writing this post to show you the latest eye diagram from our brand new DesignWare PCIe 5.0 32GT/s PCIe PHY in N7 that we just got back from the fab a few days ago. Everything is looking great so far …

PS: To everyone out there – I wish you Happy Holidays!
I’ve been involved in the development of PCI chips dating back to the NCR 53C810 and pre-1.0 versions of the PCI spec so have definitely lived the evolution of PCI Express and PCI since the very beginning! Over the years I have worked on variations of PCI, eventually moving on to architecting and leading the development of the PCI Express and PCI-X interface cores used in LSI’s line of storage RAID controller chips. For the last ten plus years I've also had the honor of serving on the PCI-SIG Board of Directors and holding a variety of officer positions. I am still involved in PCI-SIG workgroups and I present at many PCI-SIG events around the world. Back before the dawn of PCI, I received my B.S.E.E. from Rice University, and hold over two dozen U.S. Patents, many of which relate to PCI technology.
