Hybrid Memory Cube Consortium Advances Memory Cube Performance

The collaboration is working to create industry standards for the Hybrid Memory Cube.

The Hybrid Memory Cube Consortium (HMCC) has finalized and released its HMCC 2.0 specification. The consortium is dedicated to the development and establishment of an industry-standard interface specification for Hybrid Memory Cube (HMC) technology.

The HMCC 2.0 advances data rate speeds to up to 30 Gb/s, creating a new standard for memory performance. It also migrates the associated channel model from short reach to very short reach to line with existing industry nomenclature.

Since the HMCC’s founding in 2011, the collaboration has grown to include more than 150 original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), enablers and integrators who participate and develop HMC standards. According to a press release, the finalization of the second generation of HMCC specifications is a key milestone in the development of memory technology.

“HMCC 2.0 gives designers a mature solution for breaking through memory bottlenecks and delivering a new generation of systems with unprecedented memory performance,” said Hans Boumeester, vice president of IP and engineering operations at Open-Silicon. “Ratification of the new standard means that these designers will have access to standards-compliant IP for immediate integration into chips and systems that meet the growing bandwidth demands of next-generation data center and high-performance computing applications.”
