PCI Express

PCI Express is a high speed peripheral interconnect from Intel introduced in 2002

Rather than the shared, parallel bus structure of PCI, PCI Express provides a switched architecture using serial communications channels, each made up of two differential wire pairs that provide 2.5 Gbits/s (GEN 1) in both directions. Up to 32 channels ("lanes") may be combined in x2, x4, x8, x16 and x32 configurations, creating a parallel interface of independently controlled channels. The bandwidth of the switch backplane determines the total capacity of a PCI Express implementation

In 2007, enhancements that extended PCI Express outside of the box for several meters were developed: the PCI Express over Cable was born. This new capability together with its high performance, scalability and high potential roadmap motivated IOxOS Technologies to build a complete family of COTS products based on PCI Express in order to provide an outstanding performance able to break through the chassis boundaries
