IP for High-Bandwidth Applications

With the increasing number of Internet-connected consumer devices, manufacturing systems, business tools, customer service appliances, medical equipment, agricultural sensors and other devices, the difference between required and available bandwidth is becoming huge. High-speed, high-bandwidth networking enables the aggregation, automation and analysis of this data.

eSilicon specializes in a high-performance, high-bandwidth IP + 2.5D solution that targets networking, high-performance computing, artificial intelligence (AI) and 5G wireless infrastructure applications by offering specialized memories with 2.5GHz worst-case operation with more than a billion searches per second along with the 2.5D integration of 1024 Gbytes/sec data rate high-bandwidth memory (HBM2). Memory and I/O products in this category include ternary content addressable memory (TCAMs), fast cache, multi-port and asynchronous register files and HBM2 PHY.

High-Bandwidth Memory

HBM2 achieves higher bandwidth while consuming less power in a substantially smaller form factor than DDR4, GDDR5 or Hybrid Memory Cube (HMC). This technology addresses the bandwidth gap with 1024 Gbytes/sec data rate with four HBM stacks in a package. HBM has eight independent channels using a total of 1024 input and output pins. This density of signals, coupled with interposer design, requires careful design and thorough timing analysis. eSilicon’s high-bandwidth memory experience includes designing IP and systems in package (SiP), as well as manufacturing, assembling and testing systems that include HBM2.

Why TCAM?

Memory processing tends to be the bottleneck in network performance. If memory cannot keep up with increasingly fast processors, the processors have to wait, stalling the system. Specialty memories address the problem in a variety of ways. Ternary content-addressable memories (TCAMs) are unique ─ they search an entire lookup table in one cycle. eSilicon’s eFlexCAM™ TCAM compiler provides up to 2.5 billion search results in one second (BSPS), enabling high-efficiency, cost-effective solutions for applications such as network search engines, cache for network processors, QoS services, classifications, Ethernet, ATM switches and other diverse networking applications.

Fast Cache

eSilicon has designed custom high-speed single-port cache memories that are optimized to meet the high-performance requirements of industry-standard processor cores. Our newest 14LPP high-speed single-port fast cache compiler is part of our complete 14LPP IP platform.

Multi-Port Register File & Asynchronous Register File

eSilicon has designed four-port register file memory compilers and asynchronous register file memory compilers catering to multiple customers in the networking and communications domains. The four-port memories have two write ports and two read ports. The asynchronous memories have one synchronous write port and one asynchronous read port.
