San Jose CA and Munich Germany -- January 27, 2016 – OmniPHY, the leading supplier of Ethernet PHY intellectual property (IP) for the consumer, automotive, and industrial markets, and MorethanIP, the leader in Ethernet silicon solutions, have announced a partnership that provides customers with ‘best-in-class’ MAC, PCS, and PHY solutions for a wide range of Ethernet protocol implementations.
The broad partnership addresses data-rates from 10Mb/s to 100Gb/s and includes:
10/100 and 10/100/1000 Base-T Ethernet Silicon Solutions
The CMOS integration trend has caught up to the Ethernet PHY, and OmniPhy has become the standard for the PHY as an IP, with millions of ports shipped into televisions, set-top-boxes, routers and gateways. The MorethanIP MAC layers are fully interoperable with the integrated PHY IP. The resulting combination saves money, area, and power, at the system level.
Industrial and Automotive Ethernet Silicon Solutions
MorethanIP’s offers programmable switch IP, which includes support for the emerging IEEE 802.1 TSN (Time Sensitive Networking) Ethernet standards. The IP can be combined with OmniPHY’s silicon proven Automotive 100Base-T1, or with the multiprotocol Extreme Industrial Ethernet PHY line which supports every major industrial protocol in one design. Solutions are scalable to multiple nodes and multiple configurations.
Ultra-high-speed SerDes Ethernet Silicon Solutions
The combination of OmniPHY’s 25G backplane SerDes with MorethanIP’s MAC and PCS layers is an incredible edge for customers implementing 25-, 40-, 100-, and even 400G Ethernet. The MorethanIP solution is battle-tested and has the lowest latency of any solution on the market. The OmniPHY IP brings best-of-class power per bit and area-per-lane metrics, on the 28nm node.
“The use of Ethernet is increasing at a very rapid rate because it’s a very reliable and robust form of interconnect that has shown it can be flexible enough to accommodate emerging requirements such as enabling time-sensitive-networking, or even 400G communication,” said Francois Balay, President of MorethanIP.
Dr. Claude Gauthier, OmniPHY’s CTO added “Customers are always looking for the best – best power, best area, best latency, and for that reason OmniPHY and MorethanIP have come to work together over the years. With this strategic partnership we proactively address the requirements across several Ethernet markets.”
