Montage Technology known for its data processing and interconnect IC design has this week delivered the world’s first Compute Express Link (CXL ) Memory eXpander Controller (MXC).
Created to be used with add-in Cards (AIC), Backplanes or EDSFF memory modules, the new controller will enable significant scaling of memory capacity and bandwidth for data-intensive applications.
The MXC is a Type 3 CXL DRAM memory controller and is compliant with both DDR4 & DDR5 JEDEC standards as well as being designed to the CXL 2.0 specification and supporting PCIe 5.0 specification speeds.
