Open Compute Project (OCP) ODSA Project Workshop

OCP 2019

March 14-15 | San Jose, California

The Open Compute Project  Global Summit (OCP 2019) brings together more than 3,400 key decision makers, executives, engineers, developers and suppliers. Together, they help grow, drive and support the open hardware ecosystem in, near and around the datacenter and beyond.

eSilicon at OCP 2019

Join us in the Samtec booth for ongoing demonstrations of eSilicon’s 7nm FinFET-class SerDes over a five-meter Samtec cable.

SerDes Demonstration: Samtec booth at OCP 2019

Using Samtec ExaMAX Backplane Connector paddle cards and a five-meter ExaMAX Backplane Cable Assembly, eSilicon will demonstrate the performance, flexibility and extremely low power consumption of its 7nm, 56G PAM4 and NRZ DSP-based long-reach SerDes.

The demonstration will drive four high-speed SerDes lanes in three configurations:

  • CPRI NRZ modulation with point-to-point links
  • 50G Ethernet PAM4 modulation with point-to-point links
  • 56 Gbps PAM4 modulation with point-to-point links

Real-time data associated with all channels will also be displayed to demonstrate the robustness and low power of the device, including:

  • Voltage histograms, pre- and post-DSP
  • Signal-to-noise ratio (SNR)
  • Equalization
  • Eye diagrams
  • Bit error rate (BER) monitor
