HPC. FinTech. Machine Learning. Network Acceleration.
These and many other emerging applications are stressing data center networks. Data center architectures evolve to ensure optimal resource utilization and allocation.
PECFF (PCIe® Enclosure Compatible Form Factor) was developed to optimize next-gen system design and to reduce solution cost and complexity. PECFF is but one tool available for improved data center optimization.
PECFF leverages PCIe CEM AIC mechanical infrastructure. Current PCIe protocols support 32 GT/s with a pathway to 64 GT/s. However, emerging silicon solutions support 100 GT/s+ performance right now.
Thankfully, PECFF has adopted the SFF-TA-1002 connector within its infrastructure. The SFF-TA-1002/Gen-Z Scalable Connector offers a pathway to 112 GT/s performance and a robust ecosystem. These new solutions will provide many years of use across a number of applications while minimizing system re-design.
Real World PECFF Applications
How can systems designers test these emerging solutions? Samtec has developed a scalable PECFF emulation platform. This new solution offers the industry an easy-to-use tool for SI testing of signals via Gen-Z Scalable Connectors and top-edge connectivity.
In partnership with the Gen-Z Consortium, technical experts from Samtec will present the webinar Real World Applications of PECFF for Increased Performance and Disaggregation on Wednesday, August 19, 2020 at 2:00 PM EST/11:00 AM PST.
Presenters will provide and overview of PECFF and its many practical applications. PECFF also offers many advantages and benefits for data center disaggregation.
From an SI perspective, presenters will detail Samtec’s emulation platform. Additionally, presenters will review real world performance achievable via Gen-Z Scalable Connector and top-edge connectivity options.
Samtec’s presenters include:
- Steve Krooswyk – Sr SI Engineer
- Ralph Page – Sr. System Architect
- Matt Burns – Technical Marketing Manager
