eSilicon 56G long-reach 7nm DSP SerDes is now available for licensing

San Jose, California, UNITED STATES

Demos and private meetings available at SC18

SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 25, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- eSilicon, a leading provider of FinFET-class ASICs, market-specific IP platforms and advanced 2.5D packaging solutions, announced today that its 7nm 56G long-reach SerDes is now available for licensing. eSilicon will demonstrate the SerDes during SuperCompute 2018 in Dallas, Texas on November 12-15.

eSilicon will demonstrate true long-reach capability for the most demanding system environments in next-generation 25 and 50 Tb/s switches with Samtec Twinax Flyoverä Cable Assemblies. Developers can accelerate their time to market with a high-performance, flexible, easy-to-configure SerDes that targets all of the common Ethernet, Fibre Channel and CPRI standards as well as proprietary rates common in data center and 5G wireless infrastructure applications.

The demonstration will be conducted in Samtec booth #521 at SC18.

What you’ll see:

  • First-to-market full DSP (Tx and Rx) 56G SerDes in 7nm with true long-reach performance for use in the most challenging backplane applications
  • Design flexibility through a unique clocking architecture and firmware-controlled design
  • Meet your PPA targets with superior performance and power efficiency
  • Build a robust system with demonstrated error-free operation in 56G PAM4 over a 30dB backplane without forward error correction (FEC) & operation over a five-meter cable
  • Reduce time to market with our revolutionary graphical user interface (GUI) that allows quick, easy bring-up and system validation. From the GUI, users can access all the monitoring features such as non-destructive eye diagrams, SNR & BER, bathtubs, histograms and power measurements

“eSilicon’s true long-reach DSP-based SerDes coupled with Samtec’s low-loss Twinax Flyover Cable Assembly enables reach beyond the rack; five meters and beyond for data centers and 5G wireless infrastructure,” said Ralph Page, system architect at Samtec.

“Feedback at ECOC in Rome last month was phenomenal,” said eSilicon senior director of IP marketing David Axelrad. “People who saw our SerDes demo at the event commented that it was the best performing, most robust and easiest to use SerDes on the market.”

The SerDes is part of eSilicon's highly configurable FinFET-class 7n networking IP platform.
