Events 2022

Flash Memory Summit 2022 – August 2-4, Santa Clara Convention Center 

OpenCAPI Booth #651
Flash Memory OMI Workshop August 1, 2022

OpenCAPI will be hosting a workshop on August 1 to introduce the Open Memory Interface (OMI), is a serialized, Low Latency, Local Memory interface that is fully open-sourced, royalty-free, and in full production today on ASICs and FPGAs. This tutorial will introduce the OMI Specification and RTL technology along with details on development platforms and tools for users’ smooth transition from DDR to OMI Local Memory on next-generation processors and accelerators. Details of the Transaction Layer and Link Layer protocols will be reviewed along with Differential DIMM, DDIMM, and E3.S Module implementations. Also, example applications will articulate the benefits that OMI can bring to its adopters.



May 30 – June 3 – First Workshop on Composable Systems (COMPSYS ‘22)

Events – 2019

OpenCAPI showcases and progress ……

OpenCAPI held its first SNAP (Storage, Network, Analytics and Programming) Hands-on Workshop.  The workshop was an end-to-end educational session where the basic OpenCAPI technology and SNAP demo were presented.  The workshop enabled access to SNAP in a cloud environment so the attendees could give it a spin!

Events – 2018

Open Compute Project 2018 Conference – March 21, 2018

Accelerator Eco-System on Google – Rackspace – Zaius – Barreleye G2 Server:

Adi Gangidi – Rackspace – How Zaius / Barreleye G2 program development has progressed and how Accelerator (GPU / FPGA) ecosystem is coming around this server.  Zaius / Barreleye G2 / is an OpenCompute , OpenPOWER server based on POWER9, being designed by Google and Rackspace. This session is a development update.
