The one-year mark of the Compute Express Link™ announcement of intent to incorporate is quickly approaching. We have hit the ground running with incredible momentum in our working groups which are working diligently to deliver Compute Express Link technology to our community and the industry-at-large. The CXL 1.1 specification is already available to our members.

These developments are making headline news in several prominent publications including, Forbes, The Next Platform, AnandTech, HPCwire, SDxCentral, VentureBeat, and Tom’s Hardware. The CXL Consortium already represents an incredible diversity of companies and a wide range of industry expertise. These companies are opting in as members of the organization at either the contributor or adopter level.

Contributor Level

Contributor membership is $20K for the first year and $10K each subsequent year with the following benefits:

  • Participate in all CXL Consortium working groups (technology and marketing)
  • Influence the direction of the technology
  • Access the intermediate specifications (dot level releases)

The CXL Consortium Working Groups include: Compliance, Memory System, PHY, Protocol, Software & Systems, and Marketing.

Adopter Level

Adopter membership is free following execution of the Adopter Agreement and allows your company to:

  • Access the final specification releases
  • Gain the IP protection as outlined in the IPR Policy for RAND terms

Both Contributor and Adopter level member applicants must review and agree to the incorporation documents – including the Corporate Bylaws, the Intellectual Property Policy, and the Antitrust Policy prior to signing the membership agreement.
