 Title:    PCI Express: Technology, Road Map and Design Challenges
 Affil.:   Agilent Technologies; Member of PCI-SIG board of directors
Time:     *Monday**, 19/3/12, 15:30** **

*Abstract: Below

PCI Express is an industry standard, and the most prominent interconnection
architecture for I/O devices and other boards inside a computer. It is
defined and updated by the PCI-SIG(R) industry standards body, originally
formed in 1992 as the Peripheral Component Interconnect (PCI) special
interest group (SIG). Agilent Technologies, a prominent developer and
provider of test equipment at all levels yet not a competitor in the
computer market, has played a key role in the advancement of PCI Express as
a high performance yet extremely reliable interconnection scheme with very
good interoperability among different-vendor equipment.

This talk will provide the following: an overview of PCI Express; PCI
Express design and debugging challenges; Agilent tools for PCI Express
development (physical layer, signal integrity and protocol validation); PCI
Express electrical and protocol testing; and a live demo of testing

Bio:* Rick Eads, a senior program manager for PCI Express tools at Agilent
Technologies, serves as Agilent's PCI Express Technology lead. Since 2007,
he has served on the board of directors of PCI-SIG.
