Astera Labs is addressing performance, capacity and bandwidth bottlenecks in data centers with purpose-built semiconductor solutions that enable next-generation connectivity. The Santa Clara, Calif.-based startup recently revealed its Leo Memory Accelerator Platform, which will enable servers to create a unified, coherent memory space between CPUs and accelerators, thanks to its support of the Compute Express Link 1.1/2.0 interconnect standards. This will translate into an increase of overall memory bandwidth by 32 gigatransfers per second and a total capacity of 2TB for servers. The reveal of the accelerator platform was complemented by the launch of the startup’s Taurus Smart Cable Module portfolio, which aims to overcome performance bottlenecks in data center switch-to-switch and switch-to-server interconnects. Astera Labs made the announcements roughly two months after announcing that it had raised a $50 million Series C round from investors, including Intel Capital.
