PCI Hardware Compliance Test For Systems

This test verifies that Peripheral Component Interconnect (PCI) and PCI-compatible hardware device interfaces are implemented in compliance with industry specifications, hardware certification requirements, and white papers published by PCI-SIG and Microsoft. The main focus of the test is the hardware registers in the configuration space. The configuration space is used to allow hardware to expose its device type, device class, capabilities, state, status and other information to Windows®. Windows can also configure and control the device through these registers. Plug-and-play and power management use these registers extensively.

For proper operation and stability of Windows and its base functions, it is crucial that the hardware operates as expected. This test checks for errors in hardware implementations such as the following:

  • Invalid values specified in registers

  • Read-only registers that can be written to

  • Writable registers that cannot be written to

  • Registers that are supposed to clear on a write of 1 but do not

  • Registers that are supposed to retain their values through a reset but lose them

  • Devices (and in some cases, systems) that hang when certain values are written

  • Unimplemented features and/or capabilities that are required by the specs

  • Server systems include PCI Express Root, and that network and storage devices or adapters are PCI Express
