Cadence Announces Industry's First 25G Ethernet Verification IP

Provides full verification support for both MAC and PHY designs

SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 27, 2014 — (PRNewswire) —  Cadence Design Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CDNS), a leader in global electronic design innovation, today announced the industry's first Verification IP (VIP) supporting the new 25-Gigabit (25G) Ethernet specification. The 25G Ethernet specification extends the IEEE 802.3 standard to include operation at 25 Gb/s over copper cables and backplanes and increases server network throughput without using more interconnect lanes. Cadence® 25G Ethernet VIP offers full verification support for both MAC and PHY designs while providing greater assurance that the design can operate as expected.

This new 25G Ethernet specification was created by the 25G Ethernet Consortium, with the goal of supporting an industry-standard, interoperable Ethernet specification that boosts performance and slashes interconnect cost. Cadence VIP also supports the 50G definition included in 25G Ethernet, which offers 2X port reduction and a 25 percent bandwidth improvement compared to 40G.

"The new 25G Ethernet specification and 50G definition enables the cost-efficient scaling of network bandwidth delivered to server and storage endpoints in next-generation cloud infrastructure," said Brad Booth, secretary, 25G Ethernet Consortium. "As one of the Consortium's early members, Cadence is enabling further adoption of the 25G Ethernet specification and 50G definition through the delivery of verification IP."

"25G Ethernet is an important new technology that is satisfying the ever-increasing need for scale in the datacenter in a cost-effective manner," said Martin Lund, senior vice president of the IP Group at Cadence. "We continue to invest in VIP that accelerates industry adoption of new interface technology. Being first to market with VIP enables our customers to be first to market with their next-generation products."
