The UNH InterOperability Lab Developing Compliance Test Specification for CCIX Devices

Durham, N.H., November 17, 2020 -- The University of New Hampshire InterOperability Lab (UNH-IOL), an independent provider of broad-based testing and standards conformance solutions for the networking industry, is excited to announce their recent collaboration with the CCIX® Consortium, which enables coherent interconnect technologies between general-purpose processors and the acceleration devices for efficient heterogeneous computing, on developing a work-stream compliance chapter for the CCIX Base Specification. 

The CCIX specification allows processors based on different instruction set architectures to extend the benefits of cache coherent, peer processing to a number of acceleration devices including FPGAs, GPUs, network/storage adapters, intelligent networks and custom ASICs.

The UNH-IOL is working to develop a compliance test specification for CCIX devices to help demonstrate compliance and interoperability. Through the UNH-IOL’s 30+ years of experience with industry, they are able to provide guidance and insight into new technology areas with testing needs and certification for testing programs.

“Compliance testing represents a key milestone in the development of the CCIX Consortium ecosystem. We are pleased to be collaborating with the University of New Hampshire InterOperability Lab to make this compliance test specification available to our members” said Gaurav Singh, Chairman, CCIX Consortium. “UNH-IOL’s reputation in developing detailed compliance testing specifications means that CCIX Consortium members and the ecosystem, can be confident that CCIX devices comply with the CCIX specification.”

The CCIX compliance test specification will help CCIX implementers validate their designs and build confidence in this new technology. The UNH-IOL continues to uphold their reputation for being an independent, vendor-neutral testing facility with a focus on quality assurance and continues to foster industry conformance standards. The CCIX compliance test specification is expected to be completed in early 2021.
