Hybrid Memory Cube Consortium Releases New Specification
Today Hybrid Memory Cube Consortium (HMCC) announced the finalized and publicly available of its new specification HMCC 2.0. The new specification is a commitment to evolving a family of specifications aimed at all high-performance computing (HPC) applications.
The new HMCC specification will double data rate speeds from 15Gb/s to 30Gb/s, which will establish a new threshold memory performance. Designers will get a mature solution that will help them break through memory bottlenecks and deliver a new generation for systems. HMCC 2.0 migrates the associated channel model from short reach to very short reach, aligning with existing industry nomenclature.

Finalization of the new specification indicates:
- Key milestones in the further development of innovative memory technology
- Designers have access to standards-compliant IP for immediate integration into chips and systems meeting the growing demands of next-generation data center and HPC applications
- An indication of the specifications continued adoption
