White Paper: Real-Time Defense Systems Response Will Require PCIe 5.0

January 26, 2023

Today’s modern defense systems exploit massive volumes of data to provide warfighters
with more accurate, complete intel. Examples include advanced radar object detection and
AI-driven threat identification. Solving bandwidth challenges at the system interconnect helps
ensure mission success.

This paper examines the critically important interconnect technology and ecosystem built around Peripheral Component Interconnect Express (PCIe) standards and specifically, how the emerging PCIe 5.0 protocol benefits a new generation of rugged, deployable application platforms. Gen 5.0 doubles the bandwidth over the Gen 4.0 spec, which similarly doubled bandwidth over ubiquitous Gen 3.0 devices, and is an integral part of the latest devices from industry giants Intel® and NVIDIA.
