PCI Express has been widely adopted throughout the computer industry as a robust and easy to implement interconnect. PCI Express has reduced system complexity and provides unmatched levels of scalability, reliability, and bandwidth all with minimal latency. It is a layered, multi-lane, serialized evolution of the PCI/PCI-X system architectures. At the physical layer, an initial 2.5 Gbit/s dual simplex, point-to-point topology is specified, with future provisions to scale much faster.
Tekmicro’s Jazz and Quixilica products are fabric-agnostic, that is they allow developers to select the protocol that best meets their application.
