Santa Clara, CA – May, 01, 2017 – eASIC® Corporation, a fabless semiconductor company that delivers a custom integrated circuit (IC) platform (eASIC Platform), and Denmark Headquartered Comcores ApS, a specialized supplier of silicon intellectual property (SIP), today announced the support of CPRI V7.0 (CPRI Specification CPRI_v_7_0 v2015-10-09) for eASIC’s Nextreme-3S family.
With an increased line rate, up to 24.33 Gbps and improved line coding efficiency, CPRI v7.0 supports an increased RF signal bandwidth of up to 480 MHz needed for the proliferation of C-RAN fronthaul networks. The IP includes an efficient implementation of a Reed-Solomon Forward Error Correction (RS-FEC) that can optionally be used for fault protection at the highest line rates.
“Our customers value our long-term experience with CPRI and strong know-how in fronthaul networks. Together with our strong integration support, it enables fast bring up and solid results”, said Thomas Noergaard, VP Sales at Comcores. “In addition, Comcores provides a development platform connected to eASIC transceivers (16 Gbps and 28 Gbps) for proof of concept.”
The combination of the eASIC Nextreme-3S platform and Comcores highly configurable CPRI v7.0 IP, which is available today, provides a flexible and efficient solution with fast time to market.
“Efficiency, in terms of cost, power and performance, are key to enabling mobile wireless service with reliable fronthaul solutions for remote radios”, said Jasbinder Bhoot, Vice President of Worldwide Sales and Marketing at eASIC, and continued, “The Comcores CPRI v7.0 IP support in the eASIC Nextreme-3S platform not only support next generation radio, but also opens up support for a wide range of wireless baseband applications.”
