 4.1. PCIe® Requirements

OpenPOWER Ready I/O devices intended for plugging into PCIe Gen3 slots should be PCI-SIG® PCIe 3.0 Specification compliant. It is important to note that PCIe 3.0 standard supports PCIe 1.0 and 2.0 devices as well. PCIe devices that are PCIe 1.0 or 2.0 compliant, satisfy this OpenPOWER Ready criteria.

The device is required to be tested in one of the OpenPOWER Ready systems and the results from the test should be made available. Functional tests described below cover PCIe in addition to device functions.
