How We Test: Leo Memory Connectivity Platform

Learn how our comprehensive interoperability testing reduces design challenges, so you can accelerate time-to-market, streamline development efforts and reduce costs for designing and deploying heterogeneous infrastructure with CXL technology.

Interop Testing with CXL 1.1 Host CPU’s and Popular DDR5 Memory Modules - asteralabs
Interop Testing with CXL 1.1 Host CPU’s and Popular DDR5 Memory Module

After establishing the foundation of our rigorous testing, we worked with our customers to determine the most popular memory configurations for their systems and applications, to which we’ve included in our initial interop reports. We include 64GB DDR5-4800 RDIMMs from Micron, Samsung, and SK Hynix, each of which are tested with CXL 1.1-capable CPUs from AMD and Intel.

Cloud-Scale Infrastructure Fleet Management Made Easy with Aries Smart Retimers

Data centers today have a lot of servers, and within each server there is an abundance of storage, specialized accelerators, and networking/communications infrastructure. These represent tens of thousands of interconnected systems, and with the rise of hyperscalers and cloud service providers, the scale of data infrastructure is only expected to grow in the years to… Read More »

Astera Labs Joins the Optical Internetworking Forum (OIF) Interoperability Demo at OFC 2023

Partnering with Intel and Supermicro, Astera Labs will demonstrate CXL memory expansion using our industry-leading Leo Smart Memory Controllers running real-world workloads and compare performance benchmarks for direct attach memory vs. CXL attach memory implementation for large in-memory applications. This demonstration will also highlight how our Aries Smart Retimers enable longer PCIe (PCI Express) 5.0 and CXL 1.1. signal reach to implement complex topologies. Both Leo and Aries product lines are in advanced sampling stage and ready for deployment in Cloud servers.
