PLDA Solutions for Test and Validation of PCIe 4.0 Devices

In addition to their core business of licensing PCIe semiconductor IP, PLDA has a long history of robust hardware designs. PLDA initially built its first PCIe 4.0 platform, Gen4SWITCH, as a way to demonstrate the PCIe 4.0 technology and to test designs at PCIe 4.0 speed for its own needs. Widely used during tradeshows and at PCI-SIG workshops as an early PCIe 4.0 host platform, Gen4SWITCH has become a star product in high demand, and has spawned a complete Test and Validation product line, targeted specifically at the needs of PCIe 4.0 SoC designers and system vendors.
