Mobiveil Joins Gen-Z Consortium
Will Actively Participate in Planning New Scalable Computing Interconnect, Protocol
MILPITAS, CALIF. –– March 20, 2018 –– Mobiveil, Inc. today became a member of
the Gen-Z Consortium, an organization developing an open systems interconnect designed to
provide high-speed, low latency, memory-semantic access to data and devices.
“The Gen-Z Consortium’s mission for a memory-centric, standards-based approach
aligns with Mobiveil’s views,” remarks Ravi Thummarukudy, chief executive officer of
Mobiveil, a fast growing supplier of silicon intellectual property (IP), platforms and IP-enabled
design services. “We are pleased to be part of an initiative dedicated to building open systems
interconnect for memory semantic access and expect to be an active member.”
Founded in 2016, the Gen-Z Consortium is enabling the industry by developing a new,
scalable computing interconnect and protocol. The Gen-Z Core Specification 1.0 enhances
existing solution architectures and enables new solution architectures, delivering new levels of
performance, software efficiency, power optimizations, security and agility.
“The addition of Mobiveil brings a welcome and meaningful perspective to the Gen-Z
Consortium as we continue developing our technology specifications,” says Kurtis Bowman,
president of the Gen-Z Consortium. “With a reputation of building re-useable Silicon IP blocks
and platforms to accelerate product development, Mobiveil’s involvement will further the
Consortium’s goal of creating a next generation interconnect that will bridge existing solutions
while enabling new unbounded innovation.”

About Gen-Z Consortium
Gen-Z is an open systems interconnect designed to provide memory semantic access to
data and devices via direct-attached, switched or fabric topologies. The Gen-Z Consortium is
made up of leading computer industry companies dedicated to creating and commercializing a
new data access technology. The Consortium’s 12 initial members were; AMD, ARM,
Broadcom, Cray, Dell EMC, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Huawei, IDT, Micron, Samsung, SK
hynix, and Xilinx with that list expanding as reflected on our Member List.
The Gen-Z Consortium strongly believes in developing an open ecosystem where
members, the broader industry, and customers can work together to deliver robust, high-quality
specifications that meet solution needs. The Gen-Z Consortium will periodically publicly post
draft specifications and technical concepts to elicit input from the broader industry and directly
from customers. For more information visit www.genzconsortium.org.
