Inspur Information
Inspur Information, a leading IT infrastructure solutions provider, announced today it is showcasing four recently Open Compute Project (OCP) certified systems at the 2022 OCP Global Summit being held October 18-20, 2022 in San Jose, CA. The OCP Inspired™ products include three General-Purpose (GP) Enterprise servers, namely the Inspur NF5180M6, NF5280A6, and NF5280R6, and one high-density cloud-optimized system called Inspur NF8260M6. Inspur continues to promote the data center sustainability, accelerating the adoption of open computing from computing to storage.

NF5180M6 is powered by 3rd generation Intel® Xeon®, a mainstream 1U 2-socket platform providing performance, flexibility and reliability for not only cloud Tier 1 service providers but also enterprise customers. NF5280A6 is a high-end dual-socket server that uses the 3rd Gen AMD® EPYC™ Processors, fulfilling a variety of complicated workloads such as data analysis and processing, cloud, and high-performance computing. NF5280R6 is a high-end dual-socket server featuring the Ampere® Altra® and Ampere® Altra® Max processors, addressing multiple workloads such as cloud container deployment, Android cloud games, and big data. Contributing GP-Enterprise servers across all three different platforms will help accelerate adoption of the open compute technologies by our customers.

Open compute is breaking boundaries in data center innovation and enabling the convergence of more technologies with its unique technical edge, subtle design thinking, and ecosystem collaboration. Global collaboration and co-innovation revolving around open compute will drive further data center advancement while addressing worldwide issues such as carbon emissions.

With the growing concern over data center sustainability, such as utilizing renewable energy, recycling, thermal reuse, and the use of liquid-cooling technologies to reduce water consumption, creating a greener carbon footprint is one of OCP's and Inspur’s top priorities.

Inspur Information is taking an active part in green technology. Inspur Information has put forward the company-level strategy of "All in Liquid Cooling" and releases its full-stack liquid-cooled products, with cold plate liquid-cooling technology being available in all of its products including general-purpose servers, high-density servers, rack servers, and AI servers. In addition, Inspur Information builds the largest liquid-cooled data center production and R&D base in Asia to march towards being carbon neutral.

“Soaring temperatures and energy prices are leading data centers to adopt liquid cooling technology to cut carbon emissions, reduce electricity usage and improve efficiencies. “Inspur’s open development and green technology innovations demonstrate our commitment to enabling data center sustainability.”

Alan Chang, Vice President of Technical Operations for Inspur Information

During the 2022 OCP Global Summit, Inspur Information is also announcing and demonstrating partnerships and collaborations with key industry leaders.

The collaboration between Ampere and Inspur is driving the transition to Cloud Native with optimized designs that deliver leadership performance, scalability, and power-efficiency. We will showcase the Inspur NF5280R6 platform based on Ampere® Altra® and Ampere® Altra® Max processors at the OCP Summit. This platform is now broadly available and is in volume production at multiple customers. Inspur is a lead engineering partner for Ampere’s next-generation customer-reference platform, Mt. Mitchell. Ampere has contributed the Mt. Mitchell motherboard specification to OCP to accelerate the ecosystem adoption of Cloud Native Processors and platform hardware.

In collaboration with Habana, an Intel company, Inspur is developing AI servers based on open computing specifications that can integrate Habana® Gaudi2 deep learning processors. The Gaudi2 HL-225H mezzanine card is utilized in Inspur’s next-gen OAM platform to accelerate AI development on open architecture and supports a variety of AI computer vision and natural language processing workloads.

Since the announcement of Poseidon V2 E3.x reference system in last year’s 2021 San Jose OCP Global Summit, the joint team has made great progress and in this year’s Summit you will witness a demo of this system that is close to PVT production ready and with the most up to date Gen5 NVMe performance under stress. Poseidon V2 E3.x is a joint open storage solution which adopted composable architecture to maximize the benefits of EDSFF E3.x form factor, accommodating not only the PCIe Gen5 SSDs but also various devices like AI/ML accelerators or CXL Memory Expanders. Data center users can configure the system according to applications needs.

Inspur Information actively participates in the establishment of AI, edge and other standards specification. Examples are participating in the improvement of the DC-SCM2.0 specifications for the OCP Hardware Management Module project, and taking leadership role in OAM UBB specifications, Scorpion standards, edge OITT specifications, etc. Additionally, Inspur Information promotes the productization of technological standards and has contributed, among the first vendors, a number of products to the community, such as OAI AI system, OTII edge server, and a rack scale system meeting three major open organization standards (OCP, ODCC, Open19).

Open compute has been accelerating to expand from the Internet to other industries, such as telecommunications, finance, gaming, healthcare, auto manufacturing, etc. Omdia predicts that the market share of non-Internet industries in open compute will grow from 10.5% in 2020 to 21.9% in 2025.

Semtech Releases New Surge Protection Product to Safeguard Electronics

Businesswire | June 01, 2023

Semtech Corporation a high-performance semiconductor, IoT systems, and Cloud connectivity service provider, announced the latest addition to its Transient Voltage Suppressors (TVS) product portfolio, the RClamp0822B. The RClamp® platform is a purpose-built, versatile circuit protection platform for safeguarding high speed data interfaces across a broad spectrum of circuit interfaces in industrial, datacenter and telecommunication applications. The 2-line, 8V RClamp0822B offers high-performance electrostatic discharge (ESD) and surge protection in an industry standard three lead SC-75 package. Semtech Protection products safeguard the industry’s leading electronic systems and circuits from potentially harmful electrostatic discharge and surge threats. Semtech’s TVS product suite keeps products and the people they serve safe. With more than 50 years industry experience, customers building and bringing to market devices with Semtech Protection know that their products have been tested to the specifications for the latest silicon transceivers and interfaces regardless of end user application. Presenting a very-low sub 1 picofarad of loading capacitance, the RClamp0822B is ideally suited to safeguard high-speed data lines that are increasingly vulnerable to electrical transient threats. The RClamp0822B also provides a robust surge immunity, while it is packaged in a small but user-friendly SC-75 package. This package affords circuit designers flexibility in their PCB layout designs as this package includes a pair of diodes for two signal lines. “The easiest and most sensible path to ensuring reliable system operation while ensuring signal quality in power quality-challenged environments is prevention. Organizations and their teams must plan and build safeguards at vulnerable points in a system to mitigate damage caused by surges and voltage spikes. It’s vitally important that designs address high performance protection across many different circuit interfaces,” said Tamir Reshef, product marketing vice president for Semtech’s Advanced Protection and Sensing Products Group. “The expense to install these circuit protection solutions is nominal compared to the potentially damaging costs if no safeguards are installed and the unthinkable happens. The RClamp0822B is an extremely flexible device. It gives hardware engineers a single-package high performance protection solution that is well suited for broad range of industrial designs.” Key Features of Semtech Protection’s RClamp0822B Transient protection for high-speed data lines to: IEC 61000-4-2 (ESD) ±30kV (contact), ±30kV (air); IEC 61000-4-4 (EFT) 40A (5/50ns); IEC 61000-4-5 (lightning) 7A (8/20μs) 8V bi-directional working voltage protection High surge capability: 7A (tp=8/20μs) Protects 2 I/O lines Low capacitance (0.7pF typical) SC-75 package Pb-free and RoHS/WEEE compliant About Semtech’s Circuit Protection Products Semtech provides reliable system-level Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) and Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) circuit protection solutions that meet the industry's toughest requirements.
