Credo 16-nm 28G and 56G PAM-4 SerDes Now Available on TSMC FinFET Compact Process

MILPITAS, CA--(Marketwired - May 09, 2016) - Credo Semiconductor, a global innovation leader in Serializer-Deserializer (SerDes) technology, today announced the availability of its 28G and 56G PAM-4 SerDes transceiver IP on TSMC's 16-nm FinFET Compact (16FFC) process, enabling its growing customer base to take advantage of the low-power benefits of this advanced, new process in next-generation designs.

"Our close relationship with TSMC translates into a win-win for customers," said Bill Brennan, CEO of Credo Semiconductor. "As one of the first SerDes IP suppliers to port to this node, we enable the best of both worlds -- the combination of robust SerDes solutions with TSMC's advanced low-power 16FFC process. We look forward to supporting the needs of our mutual customers who are already adopting 16FFC for their next-generation designs."

"TSMC continues to expand 16-nm manufacturing options, providing customers with advanced technology to enable their end products," said Suk Lee, TSMC Senior Director, Design Infrastructure Marketing Division. "We have many customers that want both 28G and 56G SerDes IP solutions, and the availability of Credo's IP provides a proven solution for 16FFC high-performance computing applications."
