Navigating Signal Integrity Challenges: Transitioning from PCIe Gen6 to Gen7

With PCIe Gen7 on the horizon, expected to debut around 2025 at a staggering 128 GT/s data rate and a pad-to-pad channel loss budget shift from -32dB at 16GHz to -36dB at 32GHz, this article delves into the evolving performance requirements for Gen7 connectors and details the pivotal design changes needed to meet these demands. The study delves into meticulous design refinements in both the add-in card and baseboard components, addressing challenges such as signal integrity concerns, ground-mode resonances, and the delicate balance between signal performance and mechanical reliability.
