Full Utilization of 16 GT/s PCIe Gen 4 Bandwidth – 2

PCI express Gen 4 implementation is marching towards the Gen 4 0.7 release. It’s important that not only physical layer delivers the 16 GT/s rate, but also the entire protocol stack should be capable of saturating the full allocated bandwidth. To saturate the full bandwidth, following two key features are gaining traction: 10-bit extended tag […]
