Book "PCIe complete" idea
« on: January 27, 2017, 07:01:48 pm »
Does the great Jan Axelson have any plan to issue a book to demistify the PCIe bus and make development with it possible for normal human beings?

:)

PCIe is not in my current writing plans, but I always welcome suggestions. In the meantime, I can suggest Mindshare's book:

Thanks Jan. As always the difficult part is writing software on the "host" side in this case as well. It is always good to know how the hardware works but the software is the difficulty since electronic engineers or even any typical CS background person may not know how to use the software stacks to communicate using these mechanisms.

Your book does a good job is simplifying USB though, I had a look at the MindShare book on USB earlier too, it sure does a very good job of explaining the hardware side.
