Understanding the Fundamentals of PCI Express
Company: Synopsys, Inc.
PCI Express - or PCIe - is a high performance, high bandwidth serial communications interconnect standard that has been devised by the Peripheral Component Interconnect Special Interest Group (PCI-SIG) to replace bus-based communication architectures, such as PCI, PCI Extended (PCI-X) and the accelerated graphics port (AGP). The objective of this white paper is to equip the reader with a broad understanding of PCI Express and the design challenges essential to successful PCIe implementation.
