Dave Coleman is a Staff Platform Application Engineer at Intel with 22 years of electrical design, modeling and simulation experience. He specializes in enabling and integration of customer Intel QuickPath Interconnect designs in Intel® Server platforms. Dave is the co-author of the book PCI Express Electrical Interconect Design published by Intel Press and has contributed articles to Printed Circuit Design magazine. Dave has previously developed platform design guidelines for PCI Express* and InfiniBand* technology platform applications, and served on the PCI Express Gen1 and Gen2 Cabling workgroups.
Intel and other companies throughout the computer and communications industries are adopting PCI Express* technology as the successor to today's Conventional PCI* and PCI-X* architectures. The PCI Express serial architecture offers scalable bandwidth and advanced features to meet the I/O needs of next-generation systems.
PCI Express* Electrical Interconnect Design is a how-to guide for system design engineers, board and layout designers, signal integrity engineers, communication high-speed designers, test engineers and technicians, and validation engineers.
With design flowcharts, example schematics, and testing checklists at your fingertips, you will learn how to translate PCI Express electrical specifications into a reliable and robust interface implementation. Topics include:
|Desktop, server, workstation, mobile, and communication system designs|
|Modeling and simulation in both frequency and time domains|
|Design guidelines for layout|
|Validation of the final design using measurement and correlation procedures|
