Credo Joins Open Compute Project

Credo, a global innovation provider of Serializer-Deserializer (SerDes) technology which delivers high performance, low power connectivity solutions for 100G, 400G, and 800G port enabled networks, has announced its participation as a Community Member of the Open Compute Project (OCP), the company said.

The OCP is an open consortium aiming to design and enable the delivery of the most efficient server, storage, and data center hardware for scalable computing.

Credo plays an integral role in accelerating the transition to 400G and beyond in high-speed data centers by developing new, scalable technologies that deliver performance, power and price while enabling the architectural freedom to transform network architecture. By joining with open initiatives like OCP, Credo believes the transition to revolutionary architectures, such as network disaggregation, can be realized.

Credo is also a member of the HiWire Consortium, announced in September 2019 with 25 other founding members, nearly half of whom are also amongst the OCP ranks. Working in harmony with other standards bodies, the HiWire Consortium is dedicated to the standardization and certification of a new interconnect cable category, Active Electrical Cables (AECs), enabling its broad support and wide industry adoption.

Credo is a provider of high-performance, mixed-signal semiconductor solutions for the data center, enterprise networking and high-performance computing markets. Credo´s advanced Serializer-Deserializer (SerDes) technology delivers the bandwidth scalability and end-to-end signal integrity for next-generation platforms requiring single-lane 25G, 50G, and 100G connectivity for 100G, 200G, 400G, and 800G port enabled networks. Credo´s HiWire™ AEC (Active Electrical Cables) deliver plug and play 400G connectivity today that is more affordable than optical solutions and more reliable than copper.
