The Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA), a globally recognized and trusted authority for storage leadership, standards, and technology expertise, received the Most Innovative Memory Technology Award for the SNIA Computational Storage Architecture and Programming Model at the 2022 Flash Memory Summit.

The SNIA Computational Storage Architecture and Programming Model defines the capabilities and actions that can be implemented across the interface between computational storage devices and either host agents or other storage devices. The SNIA Computational Storage Technical Work Group is leading the way towards developing an application programming model and is working with other standards organizations to define the device programming model at the physical protocol layer.

PCI-SIG® today announced that the PCI Express® (PCIe®) 7.0 specification will double the data rate to 128 GT/s and is targeted for release to members in 2025.

PCI-SIG technical workgroups will be developing the PCIe 7.0 specification with the following feature goals:

  • Delivering 128 GT/s raw bit rate and up to 512 GB/s bi-directionally via x16 configuration
  • Utilizing PAM4 (Pulse Amplitude Modulation with 4 levels) signaling
  • Focusing on the channel parameters and reach
  • Continuing to deliver the low-latency and high-reliability targets
  • Improving power efficiency
  • Maintaining backwards compatibility with all previous generations of PCIe technology
