Cloud-Scale Interop Lab – Design with Confidence
At Astera Labs, we understand that plug-and-play interoperability is critical for systems running data-intensive workloads in the cloud. For this reason, we rigorously test our Aries Smart Retimer portfolio for interoperability with all major root complexes and PCIe® endpoints – making it the most widely tested PCIe 4.0 and 5.0 retimer solution on the market. It is the high standard our customers demand, and we are proud to deliver it.
Why We Test
Interoperability testing of PCIe retimers is critical for HPC and cloud applications. New compute-intensive workloads – such as Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning – are becoming more mainstream in the enterprise data center, and require an array of high-performance, low-latency devices connected to the PCIe bus that adds to overall system complexity.

How We Test
Aries Smart Retimers are rigorously tested with all major root complexes and an ever-increasing range of PCIe endpoints to ensure seamless interoperation and low-risk designs. Each device is put through our exhaustive testing regime that uses the latest PCIe 4.0 systems from Intel and AMD to exercise the PCIe link to the target endpoint with a battery of tests over thousands of iterations.
Interop Report Bulletin
After running a device through the testing gauntlet, an individual interop test report is generated to document the exact test conditions and provide a detailed breakdown of how the device performed. If all tests were passed and interoperability was successfully determined, then the device is added to the official Aries Smart Retimer Interop Report.
Check in frequently for updates from our Interop engineering team on the latest devices and use cases guiding our testing operations.
