Keywords:PCIe? Card Electromechanical? Serial Enabling Group?

Since the release of the PCIe base specification revision 3.0 (rev. 3.0) in November 2010, many semiconductor vendors have tested their bare ASICs accordingly. Now PCIe 3.0 add-in cards (AICs) and motherboards (MBs) with PCIe 3.0 slots are being developed. These items need to be tested according to the PCIe Card Electromechanical (CEM) Specification, for which the Serial Enabling Group (SEG) is currently generating the PHY Test Specification.

At time of issue of this document neither the CEM Specification (currently version 0.9) nor the PHY Test Specification (currently version 0.5) has been released. This application note represents a snapshot of the status at the time of issuing.

Its intent is to assist card vendors through pre-release testing. As the specifications are not yet final, target values for calibration or the calibra�tion procedure may change. The reader is advised to check the current version of the relevant specification and if it differs from those mentioned above, check for possible changes.
