An Introduction to PCI Express Measurements (Tektronix)

PCI Express Home Page - lots of useful information on PCI Express Generation 1 and 2.

Statistical Analysis Demystified - This article provides an overview of how a pulse response can be used to predict a network's behavior over all possible input stimuli. The techniques discussed here are conceptually similar to the techniques used in Quantum Channel Designer.

High Speed Serial I/O Made Simple (Xilinx, 210 pages) - an introduction to Serial IO and associated design issues when designing with FPGa devices.

IBIS Home Page - IBIS is the ANSI/EIA standard for interoperable high-speed I/O models. Both Quantum-SI and Quantum-Channel Designer use IBIS component models as the basis for component and package modeling information.

IBIS Advanced Technology Modeling Task Group Work Archive - IBIS-ATM is the task group that focuses on adapting the IBIS standard to meet future modeling needs. The task group's presentations and documents are stored on this site.
