PLDA Announces Second Annual “PLDA Design Day”, in Shanghai, China - a Free Design Workshop, 100% Focused on PCIe Design

18-Jun-2018 8:34 AM

This free event, to be held on July 3rd, 2018, will bring together PLDA’s PCIe Experts with a selection of key partners to provide a mix of technical presentations and real demonstrations of use cases and solutions

SAN JOSE, Calif.--()--PLDA, the industry leader in PCI Express® interface IP solutions today announced its next “PLDA Design Day” event, to be held on July 3rd, 2018 in Shanghai, China. “PLDA Design Day, Shanghai” will explore three key steps of PCIe application design, showcasing real use cases and practical solutions. This free event is not a traditional “presentation” format, but instead will deliver real training from engineers and experts from the PLDA Ecosystem who work day-to-day to create best-in-class PCIe solutions.


This valuable, free, one day event will enable SoC Designer attendees to:

  • Integrate commercial or home-grown PCIe PHY IP into their SoCs, and use a PHY testsuite to identify and debug PHY issues at PIPE interface level.
  • Integrate a 3rd-party PCIe VIP, perform application-level verification, identify and troubleshoot reported issues, and assess the need for regression automation.
  • Bring up, test and validate their PCIe 4.0 endpoint devices, and quickly identify and debug link-level and functional-level issues.

These three PCIe-specific design topics will be hosted by PLDA, M31 Technology, Avery Design Systems and Viavi Solutions.

The event will also highlight two real-life use cases:

  • Intel NSG Group will share their experience integrating PCIe connectivity into their system for SSD testing.
  • Phison Electronics will share their experiences from integrating PCIe connectivity into their line of SSD controller ICs.

According to Arnaud Schleich, CEO of PLDA, “We experienced outstanding feedback from last year’s ‘PLDA Design Day’ and were eger to return to China. China is an essential part of the PCIe ecosystem with many new design starts each year. We are thrilled to play a part in creating more robust, flexible and cost-optimized PCIe designs in this key market.”
