What is the common mode voltage for the PCIe receive inputs?

Hi,

We have measured eye diagrams for our i.MX8 design and they meet specification.  We also measured common mode voltage for the PCIe receiver inputs (PCIE1_RXN and PCIE2_RXN) and they are 0V on the BGA pads.  I normally expect to see a DC bias voltage above 0V on this type of interface.

What is the common mode voltage or DC bias voltage for PCIE1_RXN and PCIE2_RXN?

Thank you,

Chris

Hi Chris

i.MX8 PCIe interface is compatible with PCIe specification, which defines

PCIe Rx AC common mode voltage VRX-CM-AC-P < 150mV,

description can be found for example on p.87
