All PLX products go through rigorous simulation, verification, pre-silicon emulation, post silicon validation, system interoperability and compliance testing.
Interoperability plays a key role in the development and release of all PLX products. All chips undergo a broad compatibility program that includes customer systems against a detailed PLX methodology that includes chip detection, end-point connectivity, chip-to-chip, board-to-board, and system-to-system. This process instills customer confidence and supports faster to market designs.
PLX Technology has an extensive Interop Lab that tests PLX chips in a variety of popular desktop and server platforms, video cards, network cards, storage controllers and other applications. All PLX Rapid Development Kits (RDK) also undergo internal Microsoft WHQL certification.
Current interoperability reports can be found in the device toolbox of each relevant product Web page.
