A Statement from the OpenCAPI Consortium Leadership

As announced on August 1, 2022 at the Flash Memory Summit, the OpenCAPITM Consortium (OCC) and Compute Express LinkTM (CXL) Consortium entered an agreement, which if approved and agreed upon by all parties, would transfer the OpenCAPI and Open Memory Interface (OMI) specifications and other OCC assets to the CXL Consortium.

The members of both consortiums agreed that the transfer would take place September 15, 2022. Upon completion of the asset transfer, OCC will finalize operations and dissolve.  OCC member companies in good standing will be contacted with details of their specific membership benefits in CXL.

The OCC leadership extends its gratitude to its members and supporters for six years of effort producing the specifications for a cache-coherent interconnect for processors, memory expansion, accelerators and for a serial attached near memory interface providing for low latency and high bandwidth connections to main memory (OMI).

We are excited to witness the industry coming together around one organization to drive open innovation.  We expect this will yield the finest business results for the industry and for the members of the consortia.

Bob Szabo, OpenCAPI Consortium President

About the CXL™ Consortium

The CXL Consortium is an industry standards body dedicated to advancing Compute Express Link™

(CXL™) technology. CXL is a high-speed interconnect offering coherency and memory semantics using

high-bandwidth, low-latency connectivity between the host processor and devices such as accelerators,

memory buffers, and smart I/O devices. For more information or to join, visit www.computeexpresslink.org.
