Open-Silicon to Demonstrate its High Bandwidth Memory (HBM2) IP Subsystem Solution for High Performance Computing Applications and Showcase its Comprehensive IP Subsystem Solution for High-End Networking Applications at REUSE 2017

November 12th,  2017 -  Open-Silicon, a system-optimized ASIC solutions provider, will be exhibiting at REUSE 2017 in Santa Clara, CA on December 14, 2017. The company will demonstrate its comprehensive high bandwidth memory (HBM2) IP subsystem solution for 2.5D ASICs in FinFET technologies. This solution is targeted for high performance computing and networking applications.

Comprehensive High Bandwidth Memory (HBM2) IP Subsystem Solution for 2.5D ASICs in FinFET Technologies – This solution is now available for 2.5D ASIC design starts and also as licensable Intellectual Property (IP). The IP includes the controller, PHY and custom die-to-die I/O needed to drive the interface between the logic-die and the memory die-stack on the 2.5D interposer. Open-Silicon’s HBM2 IP subsystem is silicon proven on a 2.5D HBM2 ASIC SiP (System-in-Package) platform. The platform is used to demonstrate the high bandwidth data transfer rates of 1.6 Gbps/2Gbps, and interoperability between Open-Silicon’s HBM2 IP subsystem and HBM2 memory die-stack.

Comprehensive Networking IP Subsystem Solution Includes:

High Speed Chip-to-Chip Interface Interlaken IP – Open Silicon’s 8th generation Interlaken IP core supports up to 1.2 Tbps high-bandwidth performance and up to 56 Gbps SerDes rates with Forward Error Correction (FEC). This high-speed chip-to-chip interface IP features an architecture that is fully flexible, configurable and scalable, making it ideal for high-bandwidth networking applications, such as routers, switches, Framer/MAC, OTN switch, packet processors, traffic managers, look aside processors/memories, data center applications, and several other high-end networking and data processing applications.

Ethernet Physical Coding Sublayer (PCS) IP – Open-Silicon’s Ethernet PCS core is compatible with different MII interfaces for connecting to the MAC and is uniquely built to work with off-the-shelf MAC and SerDes from leading technology vendors. It supports 64b/66b encoding/decoding for transmit and receive, and various data rates ranging from 10G to 400G. The Ethernet PCS IP complies with the IEEE 802.3 standard and supports Ethernet and Flex Ethernet interfaces, making it ideal for high-bandwidth Ethernet endpoint and Ethernet transport applications.

Flex Ethernet (FlexE) IP – Open-Silicon’s FlexE IP core features a generic mechanism that supports various Ethernet MAC rates, ranging from 10G to 400G, and is uniquely built to work with off-the-shelf MACs from leading technology vendors. The FlexE IP supports the Optical Internetworking Forum (OIF) Flex Ethernet standard 1.0, and supports FlexE aware, FlexE unaware and FlexE terminate modes of mapping over the transport network, making it ideal for high-bandwidth Ethernet transport applications.

Forward Error Correction (FEC) IP – Open-Silicon’s FEC IP core is capable of multi-channel multi-rate forward error correction in applications where the bit error rate is very high, such as high-speed SerDes 30G and above, and significantly improves bandwidth by enabling 56G PAM4 SerDes integration. This single-instance IP core is compatible with off-the-shelf SerDes from leading technology vendors and supports bandwidths up to 400G with the ability to connect 32 SerDes lanes. It can easily achieve a Bit Error Rate (BER) of <10-15 with an input BER of >10-6, which is required by most electrical interface standards using PAM4 SerDes. The FEC IP core supports the Interlaken and Ethernet standards, and significantly improves bandwidth by enabling high speed, multi-channel SerDes integration, making it ideal for high-bandwidth networking applications.


When: December 14, 2017, 9am – 7pm
Where: Exhibit Floor, Santa Clara Convention Center, Santa Clara, CA.
