Introduction to the Compute Express Link™ (CXL™) Fabric Manager

Presented by

Vincent Haché, Director of Systems Architecture, Rambus

About this talk

Compute Express Link™ (CXL™) is a high-speed interconnect offering coherency and memory semantics using high-bandwidth, low-latency connectivity between the host processor and devices such as accelerators, memory buffers and smart I/O devices. The CXL 2.0 specification introduces a standardized fabric manager for inventory and resource allocation to enable easier adoption and management of CXL-based switch and fabric solutions. This webinar will introduce the CXL™ Fabric Manager (FM), explore Multi-Logical Device (MLD) management, and detail the Component Command Interface (CCI) transport protocols, background operations and categories of requests. The presentation will also share an architectural overview of the CXL 2.0 management framework and how it addresses the requirements of enterprise and datacenter deployments.
