Watch this panel discussion and hear from experts who are building and exploring disaggregated architectures and wrestling with the challenges of I/O interconnects.
Disaggregating System Architectures for Future HPC and AI Workloads
An explosion in demand for more compute capacity for high-performance computing (HPC) and artificial intelligence (AI) workloads is about to usher in a new era of disaggregated system architectures – with an emphasis on increased flexibility, efficiency, speed, and reduced costs. This Technology Outlook summarizes a recent panel discussion among industry thought-leaders from Microsoft, Intel, Lawrence Livermore National Lab, Lawrence Berkeley National Labs and Ayar Labs.
Revolutionizing Chip-to-Chip Communication Across Industry Verticals
Ayar Labs is disrupting the traditional performance, cost, and efficiency curves of the semiconductor and computing industries by delivering up to a 1000x improvement in interconnect bandwidth density at one-tenth the power. We use standard CMOS processing to develop high-speed, high-density, low-power optical interconnect “chiplets” and lasers to replace traditional electrical I/O.
