BIWIN Launches CXL 2.0 DRAM to Empower Cutting-edge Computing

Date:2023/12/27 Read:244

CXL, an advanced interconnect technology, facilitates high-bandwidth, low-latency connections between host processors and devices like accelerators and memory buffers. It addresses the "memory wall" challenge, ensuring consistency between CPU/GPU memory and connected device memory, enhancing heterogeneous computing performance. CXL, built upon PCIe interfaces, supports memory expansion beyond DIMM slots, overcoming the latency gap between main memory and SSD storage. It is crucial for AI applications, offering increased memory capacity and bandwidth, and contributing to high-performance computing. 

Recently, BIWIN successfully launched CXL 2.0 DRAM memory modules. BIWIN's CXL 2.0 DRAM adopts the EDSFF (E3.S) form factor with a memory capacity of up to 96 GB. It also supports a PCIe 5.0 × 8 interface, achieving a theoretical bandwidth of up to 32 GB/s. These modules can be directly connected to backplanes and server motherboards supporting the CXL specification and the E3.S interface, expanding server memory capacity and bandwidth. Additionally, BIWIN can provide CXL AIC adapter cards for server backplanes without E3.S.
