Dear Sir:

        We are now developing a product based on MPC8308 RDB. Our product is a PCIE card, which will be inserted into the PCIE slot on a computer. Now we have some questions about the PCIE interface, please help us:

       1. In the MPC8308 RDB schematics, the MPC8308 is connected to a mini PCIE connector, but I want to connect the MPC8308 to a  standard PCIE connector, because our product will be inserted into the standard PCI slot on a computer. Is there any reference design about connecting MPC8308 to a standard PCIE connector ?

       2. In the MPC8308 RDB schematics, the TXA pin and TXA# pin are connected with 0.1uF capacitors, why don't you connect them directly to the PCIE connector?

       If there is a reference design about connecting MPC8308 to a standard PCIE connector, please offer it to me. Thank you very much!
