High-Speed SerDes PHY IP for Up to 800G Hyperscale Data Centers
WEBINAR: High-Speed SerDes PHY IP for Up to 800G Hyperscale Data Centers
If you are designing high-performance computing and networking SoCs for hyperscale data centers, then you require IP that enables large amounts of data to travel at very fast rates.
Whether the IP is for true long reach or very short-reach die-to-die connectivity in multi-chip modules (MCMs), you must consider several essential… Read More
How to Solve the Business Gap in SEMI Industry?
Advances in DDR IP Solution for High-Performance SoCs
In this era of high-performance, low-power, and low-cost devices coming up at an unprecedented scale, the SoCs can never attain the ultimate in performance; always there is scope for improvement. Several methods including innovative technology, multi-processor architecture, memory, data traffic management for low latency,… Read More
Don’t Mess with SerDes!
SerDes stands for Serializer/Deserializer, and SerDes is a serious piece of design, requiring an extremely experienced team of analog engineers (below 10 years’ experience, you’re still a quasi-beginner). Better to rely on an analog guru to draw the SerDes architecture and manage the team! Why does SerDes is becoming more and… Read More
USB 3.0 IP on FinFET may stop port pinching
Sometimes a standard is a victim of its own success, at least for a while as the economics catch up to the technology. When a standard like USB 3.0 is announced, with a substantial performance increase over USB 2.0, some of the use cases come on board right away. Others, where vendors enjoy a decent ROI with good-enough performance,… Read More
High Quality PHY IPs Require Careful Management of Design Data and Processes
In last few years IP design has grown significantly compared to the rest of the semiconductor industry. There are newer IP start-ups opening across the world, particularly in India and China. Amid this rush, I wanted to understand the actual dynamics pushing this business and whether all of these IPs follow quality standards. … Read More
Emerging Trend – Choose DRAM as per Your Design Need
Lately I was studying about new innovations in memory world such as ReRAM and Memristor. As DRAM (although it has become a commodity) has found its extensive use in mobile, PC, tablet and so on, that was an inclination too to know more about. While reviewing Cadence’s offering in memory subsystems, I came across this whitepaperwhich… Read More
Should an IP vendor become a PHY IP Dealer?
This is not a theoretical question. Imagine that you are developing and selling digital IP, like Interface Controller, PCI Express or USB 2.0 or 3.0, or MIPI Camera Serial Interface (CSI) or Display Serial Interface (DSI). If you look at companies like Synopsys, they have built their success on the “Integrated Interface IP” concept.… Read More
