Third Generation Bandwidth Engine MSRZ30, MSR630 and MSR830 Devices Support a Serial Interface up to 30G per lane, 1Gb of Memory and Increased Offload Intelligence to Deliver Scalable Performance and Features
SANTA CLARA, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — October 7, 2015 — MoSys (NASDAQ: MOSY), a leader in semiconductor solutions that enable fast, intelligent data access for network and communications systems, today announced three new members of its Bandwidth Engine® family, each with 1 Gb of high access rate memory and a flexible high-speed serial interface. Bandwidth Engine 3 targets support for packet processing applications with up to five billion memory single word accesses per second as well as burst mode to enable full duplex buffering up to 400G for ingress, egress and oversubscription applications. The MSRZ30 is optimized to accelerate the EZchip NPS-400, the MSR630 enables high rate lookup or high-performance buffer capabilities and the MSR830 offers additional offload capabilities for functions such as statistics and metering to increase performance and add features for next generation networking and communications equipment.
MoSys® Bandwidth Engine ICs support the flexible high-performance serial GigaChip® Interface with scalable lane support (2, 4, 8, or 16) and scalable SerDes per lane rates of 10-15G or 20-30G. The scalable interface allows trade-offs of pins and bandwidth for different types of applications. The internal Bandwidth Engine 3 architecture consists of a highly parallel memory array with thirty-two access ports which are managed by the array manager and connected to the high performance, reliable, GCI serial interface enabling the highest throughput and minimizing resource conflict. The abundance of memory resources aligns well with multi-threaded, many-core processor implementations which require unprecedented levels of memory transaction rate and bandwidth. The MSR830 device supports additional statistics, metering and atomic operations for packet processing offload and maximum efficiency of pin count and memory bandwidth. These monolithic devices deliver extreme memory and offload performance without requiring exotic packaging with ultra-dense interconnect or complex cooling solutions associated with multi-chip modules.
The MoSys Bandwidth Engine 3 Family
- The Bandwidth Engine 3 - Burst (MSR630) device delivers the highest memory performance of a single device for lookup and buffering applications.
- The Bandwidth Engine 3 - Macro (MSR830) device includes extended intelligent offload capability and supports thirty-two 100GE ports with real-time metering and statistics.
- Bandwidth Engine 3 for EZchip NPS-400 (MSRZ30) builds upon the capabilities and performance of the MSR830, with data rates, interface protocol and data structures that are optimized for the EZchip NPS-400 network processor.
All three third generation Bandwidth Engine devices have a common footprint in a 27mm x 27mm 676 pin FCBGA package with 1mm pitch.
"Solutions for the memory bandwidth bottleneck are critical to provide scalable performance and features to equipment throughout the network," stated John Monson, VP of marketing and sales for MoSys. "The Bandwidth Engine family solves these challenges with increased memory bandwidth and reduced pin count, power and space to add features and performance to OEM equipment that enables internet service providers, data centers, carriers and operators to deploy scalable, intelligent networks that can deliver value to the end-customer."
"MoSys has been at the forefront of serial intelligent memory solutions with its Bandwidth Engine family, and this latest set of products provides even more capabilities," said Bob Wheeler, principal analyst for The Linley Group. "By integrating the serial interface and control logic for the Bandwidth Engine 3 into the NPS-400, EZchip has the ability to significantly increase memory bandwidth to scale performance."
