The data center market is about to go through a significant upgrade cycle in technology that has implications for how data center buildout designs evolve. Several new technologies are all going to hit the market at the same time. The industry is moving towards 7nm technology across most of the semiconductor space. At the same time, chiplets are moving front and center as an important building block. 112Gbit/s SerDes, custom-built artificial intelligence (AI) chips, and the adoption of PCI Gen4 are about to be adopted ...

We think there are some really good use cases, but we aren’t exactly sure which ones will take priority beyond mobile broadband. However, we think it could be impactful to the industry, particularly the enterprise for industrial automation. Okay. Hazy for sure ...
