High-Bandwidth Interlaken IP Ideal for Networking, Security and Content Processing Applications
MILPITAS, Calif. - July 9, 2012: Open-Silicon, Inc., a leading semiconductor design and manufacturing company and charter member of the Interlaken Alliance, announced today that Netronome, the leading developer of flow processors, has selected Open-Silicon's Interlaken IP core for its next-generation flow processors. Chosen because the IP core supports Interlaken look-aside protocol and standard Interlaken protocol within a single IP instance, it also offered flexible SerDes lane mapping between the logical and physical SerDes lanes. With over 35 successful licenses, the Open-Silicon Interlaken core provides the industry's fastest chip-to-chip interface by supporting SerDes data rates up to 28Gbps and multiple data width options.
"Open-Silicon's Interlaken IP core met the necessary requirements for Netronome's next generation flow processor and was easily integrated into our next-generation processor, even with the customization that we required," said Jim Finnegan, Senior VP Development, Netronome. "Open-Silicon's support for our requirements and customizations has surpassed our expectations."
The Interlaken protocol is an integral part of today's leading edge data networking products, enabling fast, scalable, and low-latency chip-to-chip communication for switching, routing, and deep packet processing applications. Architected to be easily synthesizable into many ASIC technologies, Open-Silicon's Interlaken IP core is uniquely built to work with off-the-shelf SerDes from leading technology vendors. This support for multiple industry-leading SerDes PHYs allows Open-Silicon's customers to quickly integrate the core into their technology of choice.
"We have seen tremendous adoption of Open-Silicon's Interlaken IP core across applications like network switches, routers and storage equipment. Working with Netronome on its next generation flow processors utilizing advanced foundry technology has demonstrated the inherent capability and flexibility of our IP core," said Steve Erickson, VP of IP and Platforms, Open-Silicon.
