ZeroPoint Technologies AB (Gothenburg, Sweden) has announced it has licensed DenseMem compression for CXL memory to a “major global semiconductor manufacturer.”

ZeroPoint claims that DenseMem increases hyperscale datacenter efficiency, boosting memory performance and bandwidth by a factor that varies between 2x and 4x. DenseMem increases performance per watt by 50 percent, and reduces total cost of ownership by up to 25 percent the company claims.  DenseMem is also specification-compliant with the Open Compute Project.

“We envision a bold future for computing where memory becomes a heterogeneous layer, rather than a bottleneck,” said Klas Moreau, CEO of ZeroPoint in a statement. “At ZeroPoint Technologies, we are committed to providing 2-4 times improvement in memory capacity, while simultaneously lowering the total cost of ownership of enterprise servers and hyperscale data centers.”

DenseMem increases effective CXL Type 3 Device memory capacity by a factor of 2x to 4x through in-line memory compression/decompression. It comes as hardware IP that can be integrated into any CXL Type 3 device controller, ASIC, or SoC, while having minimal impact on latency and bandwidth. DenseMem is available as a drag-and-drop IP block, portable across the latest process nodes. ZeroPoint Technologies’ products are lossless, seamless, invisible to operating systems and applications, and platform agnostic.  

The IP has been implemented on a TSMC 5nm node.
