    How to draw 75W power from PCIE v1.0 8x slot

    Hi All,

    I have a problems on deciding with PCIE power. Actually in our design we use 8x connector. But the power drawn from the server board power rail for 8x (25W) is not sufficient. And the 16x connector will draw 75W. Is it possible to draw 75W from a 8x connector

    Need more details, but you might start by looking up the PCI-E specs - google is your friend.

    Thanx for the reply.

    We have alredy gone through the specs. But the development board from xilinx ML555(someone plz go through) draws 75W from 8x connector.
