Webinar: How CXL Technology will Revolutionize the Data Center

Webinar: How CXL Technology will Revolutionize the Data Center
by Admin on 10-31-2022 at 2:13 pm

Data Centers face many challenges in an environment of exponentially rising data volume growth. With workload demands increasing rapidly, the need for more bandwidth and capacity continues to rise. We’ve reached the point where half of server bill of materials (BoM) costs are for memory. How can we make the best use of this investment?

CXL Block Diagram

The tremendous amount of data generated by AI/ML driven applications and other hyperscale computing applications have forced the age old server architecture to change. The new architecture is driven by the resource disaggregation paradigm, wherein memory and storage are decoupled from the host CPU and managed independently… Read More

IP 2017 2026

If you want to remember the key points for Interface IP in 2021, just consider $1.3B, 22%, $3B. Interface IP category has generated $1 billion 300 million in 2021, or 22.7% year to year growth, thanks to high runner protocols PCIe, DDR memory controller and Ethernet/SerDes. Even more impressive is the forecast, as IPnest predict… Read More

CXL Verification

Amid the alphabet soup of inter-die/chip coherent access protocols, CXL is gaining a lot of traction. Originally proposed by Intel for cross-board and cross-backplane connectivity to accelerators of various types (GPU, AI, warm storage, etc.), a who’s who of systems and chip companies now sits on the board, joined by an equally… Read More

UCIe min

Chiplets are hot now as a way to extend Moore’s Law, dividing functionality across multiple die within a single package. It’s no longer practical to jam all functionality onto a single die in the very latest processes, exceeding reticle limits in some cases and in others straining cost/yield. This is not an academic concern. Already… Read More

Security for Cloud Applications

Privacy and security have always been a concern when it comes to computing. In prior decades for most people this meant protecting passwords and locking your computer. However, today more and more users are storing sensitive data in the cloud, where it needs to be protected at rest and while in motion. In a Synopsys webinar Dana Neustadter,… Read More
