Course Overview

This course introduces and details PCIe new features as introduced in PCIe versions 2.1 and 3.0.
Each new topic is presented from four different perspectives:
–  Motivation
–  Implementation
–  Configuration
–  Example.
This is an in-depth course and is both hardware and software oriented. It describes the different options and discusses performance. It is also useful when determining system architecture.
The course is based on well-known PCIe basics (as covered in the basic PCIe course at Logtel)

Who should attend?

Anyone, software or hardware oriented, wanting to learn more advanced PCIe features. Also system architects dealing with PCIe.

Prerequisite:

Participants will be able to specify performance, define the architecture, design the hardware platform and configure the system
