As server makers prepare to embrace Compute Express Link, Astera Labs is pitching itself as an integral building block for unlocking new levels of memory bandwidth and capacity with the open interconnect standard. The Santa Clara, Calif.-based startup told CRN late last year that it has hundreds of design wins with cloud service providers, OEMs and ODMs for its CXL connectivity solutions. If all goes to plan, this will boost the startup’s annual revenue to the nine figures in 2022, according to the startup. A critical part of Astera Labs’ portfolio is the Leo CXL Memory Accelerator platform, which it said is the first system-on-chip solution to create a unified, coherent memory space between CPUs, accelerators and other devices connected via CXL. With Intel and AMD set to introduce server processors with CXL support this year, 2022 could be a big year for Astera Labs.
