San Jose, CA, May 23, 2018 –– SmartDV is announcing today that it has joined the OpenCAPI Consortium, an open development community based on Coherent Accelerator Processor Interface technology. Upon joining, SmartDV is also announcing today the delivery of an OpenCAPI VIP.
SmartDV joins a growing roster of technology organizations that are contributing to the OpenCAPI Consortium and driving data center server innovation. Through the Consortium, members are working collaboratively to innovate on top of OpenCAPI, a high performance coherent bus standard designed to help the technology industry meet growing demands for more advanced memory, accelerators, networking and storage technology. Using the OpenCAPI specification, developers can enable high performance accelerators like FPGAs, GPUs, network and storage accelerators to perform functions that a server’s general purpose CPU is not optimized to execute. Because OpenCAPI technology has been made available to the entire industry through the Consortium, SmartDV has embraced open collaboration with other industry leaders to enable innovation and differentiated products to be brought to market faster.
The SmartDV OpenCAPI Verification IP is fully functional and shipping today. Deepak Kumar Tala, Managing Director of SmartDV Technologies India Private Limited said: “We have been working with one of our major customers, who is also an OpenCAPI member, to develop and verify our OpenCAPI Verification IP product. We are working closely with the Consortium and will deliver additional products to support the standard.”
“The development model of the OpenCAPI Consortium is one that elicits collaboration and represents a new way in exploiting and innovating around coherent accelerator processor technology,” says Scott Graham, OpenCAPI Consortium Chair. “New OpenCAPI Consortium members like SmartDV will be able to create and add their own innovations to further advance differentiation and growth of the OpenCAPI ecosystem.”
