Rambus Announces Tapeout and Availability of 112G Long Reach SerDes PHY on Leading-edge 7nm Node for High-Performance Communications and Data Centers

SerDes PHY delivers leading-edge performance and power efficiency for
next-generation SoCs in data-intensive applications

SUNNYVALE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/DataCenter?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#DataCenterlt;/agt;–Today Rambus
 (NASDAQ: RMBS) announced its newest portfolio solution of 112G
Long Reach (LR) SerDes PHY
on a leading-edge 7nm process node for
next-generation terabit switches, routers, optical transport networks
(OTNs), and high-performance networking equipment. As the industry
rapidly transitions to 400GB and 800GB wired communication applications,
112G is a key building block necessary to support the ever-growing
demand for more bandwidth in data center and network applications,
doubling the data rate of 56G SerDes. Rambus is at the forefront of
implementing 112G design to address the long-reach backplane
requirements for next-generation data-intensive applications.

This high-speed PHY provides the optimal combination of power
efficiency, performance and area, adding to Rambus’ leading-edge large
portfolio of silicon-proven intellectual property (IP), design tools and
reference flows. With the introduction of 112G, this technology achieves
higher performance to rapidly enable industry infrastructure for the
400GB and 800GB applications.

“By leveraging leading 7nm process technology, Rambus is enabling the
next generation of Communications and Data Center applications,” said
Hemant Dhulla, VP and GM of IP Cores, Rambus. “We’re excited to continue
to expand our IP portfolio and deliver our customers top-of-the-line
performance and flexibility for today’s most challenging systems,
including solutions like our 112G LR SerDes PHY.”

This latest portfolio addition highlights Rambus leadership in
high-speed SerDes PHY IP, leveraging the company’s long tradition of
signal and power integrity expertise — remaining at the forefront of
innovation in interface technology.

Technical Details

The Rambus
112G LR SerDes PHY
will deliver enterprise-class performance across
the demanding backplane environments beyond 30dB. To achieve this data
rate requires an innovative SerDes architecture approach to meet the
ever-growing data needs for high-speed data-intensive applications.

Key features of the Rambus 112G LR SerDes PHY include:

  • Scalable ADC-based (analog-to-digital converter) architecture with
    support for PAM-4 and NRZ signaling
  • DSP-based architecture for improved signal to noise ratio (SNR) and
    extended reach
  • Configurable to provide power, performance and area (PPA) optimization
    for medium reach (MR) and long reach (LR) applications.

Availability and Additional Information

The Rambus 112G LR SerDes PHY is currently available for licensing and
early access design customers can engage today.

With a near-term roadmap featuring industry-leading 112G solutions for
extreme short reach (XSR), the Rambus industry-standard interface
offerings are high-quality, complete PHY solutions designed with a
system-oriented approach to maximize flexibility in today’s most
challenging system environments. For more information on our latest
