PCIe protocol training is a 6 weeks course(weekends training). It covers all the aspects of PCIe Gen1 to Gen4, including PCIe topology, configuration headers, enumeration, Transaction layer, Data link layer, Physical layer, reset, power management, interrupt handling, error handling. and PIPE. Course also includes a dedicated session on PCIe VIP development concepts, PCIe controller testplan, and TB component coding concepts etc.
