Baseline Error Detection and Handling

This section defines the required support for detecting and reporting PCI Express errors. Each PCI Express compliant devices must include:

  • PCI-Compatible support — required to support operating environments that have no knowledge of PCI Express.

  • PCI Express Error reporting — available to operating environments that do have knowledge of PCI Express.
