It’s all about the data. Loads and loads of data. How do you build a system to handle it? This article looks at interconnect options for the new PCI Express 6.0 specification: which interconnect system to choose, how to maintain signal integrity, and how to address design challenges.
Convergence in technology is not a new idea. The concept infers that disparate technologies evolve to a closer association or integration over time. Convergence occurs when any number of technologies, such as micro twinax cables, ASIC design, interconnects, advanced IC packaging, and others combine to offer a unique system-level solution. Many see convergence as required for 224 Gbps PAM4 system performance.
