eASIC Announces Nextreme-3 Platform Support for PCIe Gen3.1-SRIS

Nextreme-3 enables scalable, high bandwidth, cabled connectivity with SATA-Express using PCIe Gen3.1

SANTA CLARA, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — August 11, 2015 — eASIC® Corporation, a fabless semiconductor company that delivers a custom integrated circuit (IC) platform (eASIC Platform) today announced immediate availability of silicon-proven transceivers optimized for the PCIe 3.1 electrical specification.

The eASIC Nextreme-3 family incorporates transceivers that feature advanced receiver clock-data recovery (CDR) circuits, enabling them to operate with separate reference clocks between link ends with independent spread-spectrum modulation, in keeping with the SRIS (separate refClks independent spread) usage model. Coupled with advanced equalization capabilities and low power consumption, the transceivers are ideal for use in a wide variety of high performance storage and networking systems.

eASIC support for SRIS allows data communication over a cable without requiring a separate cable for forwarding the reference clock, which significantly reduces electromagnetic interference (EMI) issues while allowing use of lighter, lower cost cables. It also provides scalable, high bandwidth connectivity and compatibility with future SATA/SAS [serial advanced technology attachment/serial attached SCSI (small computer system interface)] standards.

“Our eASIC Nextreme-3 platform now offers designers the freedom to create server-independent, scale-out storage solutions,” said Brent Przybus, senior director of marketing at eASIC. “The small footprint of our devices, together with versatile configuration options, gives OEMs a compact, low cost and low power solution.”
