Alphawave Semi and Teledyne LeCroy Unveil PCIe 7.0 Signal Generation and Measurement

Leading Technology Collaboration Takes Center Stage at DesignCon in Santa Clara, California on February 1

TORONTO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Alphawave Semi (LSE: AWE), a global leader in high-speed connectivity for the world’s technology infrastructure, and Teledyne LeCroy, the worldwide leader in protocol test and measurement solutions, today announced the unveiling of PCI ExpressⓇ 7.0 signal generation, transmission, and measurement collaboration at DesignCon in Santa Clara, CA.

This launch is the culmination of Alphawave Semi and Teledyne LeCroy’s collaborative efforts, with results that push the boundaries of signal transmission and measurement technologies. These results accelerate the deployment of PCIeⓇ 7.0 technology for data-intensive artificial intelligence (AI) workloads for hyperscaler and data infrastructure applications.

Technical Session Presentation

Alphawave Semi and Teledyne LeCroy will jointly present Correlation Methodology for 128 GT/s Operation for PCIe Gen 7 DSP-Based IBIS-AMI Models on February 1 from 9:00 AM to 9:45 AM Pacific Standard Time in Ballroom B at the Santa Clara Convention Center.

The technical presentation will showcase Alphawave Semi’s Input/Output Buffer Information Specification algorithmic modeling interface (IBIS-AMI). This interface is integral to predicting the transmitter output performance of the Alphawave Semi 128 Gigabit per second (Gbps) DSP-based Serializer-Deserializer (SerDes), using Teledyne LeCroy’s WaveMaster® 8650HD 65 GHz, 12-bit high-definition oscilloscope (HDO®) and QualiPHY® compliance test software for PCIe 7.0.

Results will show that the Alphawave Semi 128 Gbps SerDes, when measured with the Teledyne LeCroy 12-bit, 65 GHz oscilloscope, passes all expected PCI-SIG® PCIe 7.0 electrical base and compliance tests, including:

  • Transmitter jitter
  • Pulse response
  • Signal-to-noise-and-distortion ratio (SNDR).

Live Demonstration at Teledyne LeCroy’s Booth

Following the technical session presentation, attendees can experience a live demonstration at Booth 1249 in the DesignCon exhibition hall to witness firsthand the simulation and transmitter test validations for PCI-SIG PCIeⓇ 7.0 electrical base and compliance test specification requirements.

The technical session and demonstration will be the first to demonstrate a correlation between models and measurements for 128 GT/s data transfers using a 65 GHz oscilloscope. This will play a vital role in supporting the development of the PCIeⓇ 7.0 compliance program.
