■ Unrivalled Memory Expansion Similar to an external solid state drive (SSD), the CXL Memory Expander can fit into a DRAM socket to give DRAM capacities a significant boost. Its advanced interface enables developers to create a flexible memory arrangement that enhances the efficiency of DRAMs in IT systems, without having to modify the existing server structure or change it altogether. ■ Streamlined Data Handling A key benefit of the Memory Expander is its efficient data processing. By expanding higher bandwidth, it enables different devices to share memory and leverage their resources more effectively. They can then use the accelerator’s memory as if it were main memory by sharing common memory areas. Devices without their own internal memory can also take advantage of that main memory and use it as their own. ■ Accelerated Computing Speed Minimizing latency issues is one of the key functions of the CXL Memory Expander – a feature that will become more critical as the amount of data associated with AI and machine learning grows. The Memory Expander leverages both the accelerator and the CPU to improve system computing speeds, leading to far easier and more rapid data processing.3. Expanding Memory, Expanding Possibilities However, the CXL interface is still new in the industry. First proposed by Intel in March 2019, this connectivity technology is in its early stages, but its potential to drive more efficient data processing is pushing it to be viewed as a driver of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. With the age of AI evolving around us, Samsung Electronics has introduced not only CXL memory hardware, but also a software solution called the Scalable Memory Development Kit (SMDK) to help expand the CXL ecosystem. Samsung is poised to lead efforts to change how we process data by continuing to develop next-generation memory solutions – ones that can accommodate the fast-evolving landscape of data processing. As the message “Expanding Memory, Expanding Possibilities” in the video suggests, it will be interesting to see how the novel memory solution CXL opens up the boundless potential to connect future technologies with our day-to-day life.
