From concept to production, designing a PCIe 5.0 device requires a long development cycle owed largely to heavy efforts on verification and validation.
Today, a large collection of tools enable simulation to find bugs during the verification process or to generate PCIe transactions to validate the device. However, these tools are not enough to provide 100% confidence before a device can go to production for one main reason: all these tests and simulations were not done in a real hardware environment.
That’s why Rambus created INSPECTOR for PCIe 5.0 Interposer Cards.
