Server Connectivity Backbone
The rapid innovation in specialized workloads – such as artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning – demand high-bandwidth, low-latency interconnects between processors, workload accelerators, and storage nodes. Heterogeneous computing and modular server designs are redefining the connectivity backbone in the next generation of servers.
Specialized semiconductors help enable this connectivity backbone, and system designers expect plug-and-play interoperability to accelerate technology adoption. Featuring an innovative “smart” architecture, the Aries Retimer platform automatically learns, adapts, and allows for easy optimizations that are necessary in robust link-up and plug-and-play interoperations.
Designed to support a wide array of system topologies and applications, the Aries Smart Retimer platform supports all PCIe clock modes (SRIS, Common Clock, and SRNS), several bifurcation combinations (1x16, 2x8, 4x4 etc.), and both PCIe and Intel Retimer specifications.
