"SerDes technology is clearly an area where Avago excels, and we are pleased to offer our customers access to an expanded SerDes IP portfolio and related IP bundle," said Patrick Soheili, VP marketing, eSilicon. "Avago's IP, combined with eSilicon's design, productization and manufacturing operations expertise and our foundry partner TSMC's manufacturing expertise provides our customers with a proven way to get a high-performance product to market quickly."
"Avago's IP engagement with eSilicon now spans four process generations," said Frank Ostojic, VP and GM of Avago Technologies' ASIC Products Division. "Our expanded agreement will allow eSilicon to serve a broader range of customers with high-performance, low-power requirements in process nodes ranging from 90nm down to 28nm."
Avago's SerDes cores are based on a modular, multi-rate architecture allowing hundreds of SerDes channels to be easily integrated on a single chip. The SerDes cores include a unique decision feedback equalization (DFE) feature resulting in a number of key performance differentiators such as low overall power, best-in-class data latency, and best-in-class jitter and crosstalk tolerance.
The Avago SerDes cores and the related IP bundle are available immediately to eSilicon customers. For more information, please visit eSilicon's website or contact an eSilicon sales representative in your area.
