European processor startup joins CXL consortium
SiPearl, the processor startup formed with European Union funds, has joined the CXL Consortium, promoter of the Compute Express Link.

SiPearl SA (Paris, France) is chartered with creating a processor for exascale computing that provides Europe with strategic independence. To that end it has been given €6.2 million from the Horizon 2020 research and innovation program intended to fund it while it raises money from the venture capital community.

The CXL Consortium was founded by leaders in the exascale computing sector including Alibaba, Cisco, Dell EMC, Facebook, Google, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Huawei, Intel and Microsoft. The consortium is developing high-speed low latency CPU interconnect protocol for the linking of CPUs and workload accelerators such as GPUs and AI processors. The protocol makes use of PCI Express 5.0 physical layer infrastructure.
