Building a Better Interconnect with CCIX
In this week’s episode of Fish Fry, data center technology rules the roost. We can toil away at the world’s greatest IoT design, embedded computer, or specialized IC – but it’s the diligence of datacenter technology that holds the key to the success of our electronic design community. In this week’s Fish Fry, we take a closer look at two different aspects of data center technology. Sachin Dhingra and I investigate a new CCIX verification IP recently rolled out by Cadence that hopes to ease data center interconnect bottlenecks. We also check out IBM’s world record-breaking magnetic tape storage announcement and examine why it makes makes tape competitive for cloud storage.
