Solution brings scalable ADC-based architecture quickly to networking market, supporting transition to 400GbE Ethernet
SUNNYVALE, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — April 20, 2017 — Rambus Inc. (NASDAQ: RMBS) today announced that it is partnering with Samsung Electronics for its recently launched 56G SerDes PHY to be developed on Samsung’s 10nm LPP (Low-Power Plus) process technology.
The industry-leading 56G SerDes PHY delivers enterprise-class performance across the challenging signaling environments typical of high-speed communication systems and provides PAM-4 and NRZ signaling with a scalable ADC-based (analog-to-digital converter) architecture. This new, flexible architecture addresses the long-reach backplane requirements for the industry transition to 400 GB Ethernet applications.
“There is a demand for increased bandwidth and higher performance systems with the rise of data across enterprise applications,” said Luc Seraphin, senior vice president and general manager of the Rambus Memory and Interfaces Division. “Our partnership with Samsung enables us to bring more solutions quickly to market that address the process, power and performance challenges of today’s complex data centers. We are pleased Samsung has selected to work with us, following our successful partnership of the 28G SerDes PHY on their 14nm LPP process technology.”
“Network application is one of our key segments of focus and the composition of our 10LPP network solution and the Rambus 56G solution will be the most competitive choice for high-performance and low-power consumption,” said Ryan Lee, vice president of the Foundry Marketing Team at Samsung Electronics. “Rambus has been a long-term strategic partner with Samsung for high-speed SerDes IP, and this 56G SerDes collaboration will pave the way for the explosive data processing requirements to come.”
