Outer Loop Equalization for PCIe Cross-Lane Transceiver Optimization

By Mohammad Mobin, Haitao Xia, Aravind Nayak, Gene Saghi, Christopher Abel, Lane Smith, and Jun Yao

PCIe Gen4 enables a new wave of innovation to guide inner-loop SerDes optimization assisted by outer-loop system optimization. This paper introduces an outer-layer equalization scheme for managing SerDes inner-layer equalization to optimize overall system-level aggregate performance.
