eSilicon at ECOC 2019

Join us in Stand 650 for multiple demonstrations of our 7nm 56G PAM4 and NRZ DSP-based long-reach SerDes capabilities. At SuperCompute 2018 in Houston, we demonstrated our 56G SerDes over a five-meter Samtec backplane cable assembly. Let’s see if we can beat that in Dublin in 2019.

What you’ll see:

  • First-to-market full DSP (Tx and Rx) 56G SerDes in 7nm with true long-reach performance for use in the most challenging backplane applications
  • Design flexibility through a unique clocking architecture and firmware-controlled design
  • Meet your PPA targets with superior performance and power efficiency
  • Build a robust system with demonstrated error-free operation in 56G PAM4 over a 30dB backplane without forward error correction (FEC) & operation over a five-meter cable
  • Reduce time to market with our revolutionary graphical user interface (GUI) that allows quick, easy bring-up and system validation. From the GUI, users can access all the monitoring features such as non-destructive eye diagrams, SNR & BER, bathtubs, histograms and power measurements

ECOC 2019 logo

This year’s logo is based on Newgrange – an ancient Irish passage tomb about 40 miles South of Dublin.  It was chosen as the logo because it has a light passage which is aligned to the rising sun on the Winter solstice so one day in the year the light will travel all the way down the light channel. It was thought that this was a nice link to the content of the conference and exhibition and also showcased Ireland’s heritage. You can find out more about Newgrange here: https://www.newgrange.com/
