OIF to Provide Update on Electrical Interface Projects at DesignCon 2022; Industry thought leaders will provide an overview of OIF’s lessons learned on CEI 112G and progress on 224G (Gbps)

Fremont, Calif. – Over the last 20+ years, OIF’s interoperable electrical interface specifications known as CEI (common electrical I/O) have been adopted across many applications to become critical building blocks for several industry standards and platforms.

At this year’s DesignCon, April 5-7, 2022, in Santa Clara, CA, OIF experts will discuss its seven ongoing CEI-112G electrical interface development projects and the new architectures they will enable, including chiplet packaging, co-packaged optics and internal cable-based solutions. The panel will also provide an update on OIF’s recently launched first set of new CEI projects targeting the 224G generation of electrical interfaces and the published 224G Framework Project white paper. The white paper provides a roadmap for the applications, challenges and projects needed to support new generations of architectures and equipment.
