In Interop Bulletin #4, we cover PCIe® 5.0 interoperability testing with our Aries PCIe 5.0 Smart Retimers and provide two interop demonstrations with key industry partners’ root complex and endpoints.
The first Aries demo shows seamless end-to-end PCIe 5.0 interoperation with an Intel Sapphire Rapids CPU-based platform, a Broadcom switch, and SSDs from Kioxia and Samsung. The second demo emphasizes Aries’ robustness in a system use case that includes an Intel CPU, PLECs to create a high loss channel, and a Broadcom switch.
See our Aries Smart Retimers in action via two interoperability demonstrations with key industry partners’ PCIe® 5.0 root complex and endpoints.
