With the advent of IP supporting the SMMUv3 specification from Arm, the enhanced capabilities of the fourth generation of the PCI Express standard can be realized in Arm SoCs. Many challenges face integrators working at this frontier where Arm meets the Intel world and this paper outlines new techniques and technologies designed to make these challenges manageable.

Takeaway

Advanced Arm Server SoCs are becoming harder and harder to integrate and validate, more and more of the Arm IP is becoming distributed in architecture, performance is harder and harder to predict. All of these factors are making the job of SoC integrator more and more difficult. The audience will learn about some advanced SW-driven verification techniques which provide the productivity needed to tackle these growing challenges



Intended Audience

Some familiarity with Arm Architecture, Memory Management, awareness of PCIExpress
