OFC 2019: eSilicon to demonstrate two 7nm IP products: 56G DSP SerDes over a 5-meter Samtec cable assembly and a complete HBM2 PHY subsystem

1174 Days ago

SAN JOSE, Calif., Feb. 27, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- eSilicon, a leading provider of FinFET-class ASICs, market-specific IP platforms and advanced 2.5D packaging solutions, will demonstrate two 7nm FinFET-class IP products at OFC 2019.

SerDes Demonstrations: eSilicon Booth 5416
March 5-7, 2019

Using Samtec ExaMAX Backplane Connector paddle cards and a five-meter ExaMAX Backplane Cable Assembly, eSilicon will demonstrate the performance, flexibility and extremely low power consumption of its 7nm, 56G PAM4 and NRZ DSP-based long-reach SerDes.

The demonstration will drive eight high-speed SerDes lanes in three configurations:

  • PAM4 modulation with point-to-point links
  • NRZ modulation with point-to-point links
  • PAM4 modulation with double-length (10 meter) loop-back links with repeater

All channels will be run at different speeds to showcase the flexibility of the SerDes device. Real-time data associated with all channels will also be displayed to demonstrate the robustness and low power of the device, including:

  • Voltage histograms, pre- and post-DSP
  • Signal-to-noise ratio
  • Equalization
  • Eye diagrams
  • Error rate plots

HBM PHY Subsystem Demonstrations: eSilicon Booth 5416
Tu esday-Thursday
March 5-7, 2019
2.4Gbps HBM2 PHY Subsystem for High-Performance Computing, Networking & AI
This demonstration shows a complete high-bandwidth memory Gen2 (HBM2) solution in 7nm operating at 2.4Gbps.

  • The subsystem includes:
    • eSilicon’s latest 7nm HBM2 PHY
    • Northwest Logic memory controller
    • HBM DRAM stack from a leading memory supplier
  • The test chip uses leading-edge interposer technology to interconnect the integrated PHY and controller with the 3D DRAM stack
  • The firmware, combined with a user-friendly graphical interface (GUI), allows test and validation of the HBM subsystem
  • Among other tests and monitoring tools available, this board demonstrates the link margin of the complete subsystem with the internal eye monitor and schmoo
