Press Release

eSilicon to demonstrate silicon performance of its 7nm 56G long-reach SerDes at ECOC, September 24-26, 2018

Join us in Anritsu’s Booth, #408

For release on September 20, 2018, San Jose, Calif.

eSilicon, a leading provider of FinFET-class ASICs, market-specific IP platforms andadvanced 2.5D packaging solutions, will demonstrate the silicon performance of its 7nm 56G long-reach SerDes during ECOC in Rome, Italy on September 24-26.

What
7nm 56G long-reach SerDes demonstration
eSilicon will demonstrate the silicon performance of its 56G PAM4 SerDes by showing a periodic pattern generator (PPG)-to-chip live demo with different backplane reaches in the Anritsu Booth, #408. This is the first public demonstration of eSilicon’s 7nm SerDes technology showing one of its key features: high insertion loss tolerance with low bit-error rates to support increased bandwidth in legacy equipment.

The demonstration will show 56G PAM4 data transfer running at 56Gb/s over two different BERTSCOPE channels with two different reaches, both driven by the Anritsu MP1900A Signal Quality Analyzer-R using a passive and an active PAM4 combiner. The demo with Anritsu is significant because it will show how it is possible to leverage TX finite impulse response (FIR) capabilities to increase performance and improve power figure of merit (FOM) and functionality.

“To obtain such reach and effectively stress the PAM4 SerDes receiver, it is very important to be able to generate an original extremely high-quality signal, and include equalization and stress tools for full control of the TX side. During the bring-up period, a flexible solution like Anritsu’s MP1900A is the best choice for an interoperability test,” said Anritsu EMEA Wireline Marketing Director Alessandro Messina.

When
Monday-Wednesday, September 24-26, 2018
