Report examines applications of 7nm IP platforms for AI and networking
SAN JOSE, Calif. — August 14, 2018 — eSilicon, an independent provider of FinFET-class ASICs, market-specific IP platforms and advanced 2.5D packaging solutions, announced today the availability of a comprehensive report from the Linley Group that details the company’s 7nm IP portfolio. The Linley Group is an industry-leading source for independent technology analysis of semiconductors for networking, communications, mobile, and data-center applications.
The report examines the application of eSilicon’s recently announced 7nm IP platforms for AI and networking. The methodology to configure custom AI accelerators using the eSilicon neuASICÔ platform is detailed. IP discussed in the report includes 56Gbps SerDes, high-bandwidth memory version 2 (HBM2) PHY, ternary content-addressable memory (TCAM) compilers, as well as networking-optimized I/Os and additional types of memory compilers. eSilicon’s approach to 2.5D integration is also discussed, along with a development timeline for its IP platforms and an assessment of the market.
“We were impressed with the progress eSilicon has made in AI and networking,” said Mike Demler, senior analyst at The Linley Group and a senior editor at Microprocessor Report. “These are highly competitive markets and the company’s 7nm IP platforms should provide real differentiation for its customers.”
The report, entitled “eSilicon 7nm SerDes Hits 56Gbps — NeuASIC Platform Includes AI Accelerators for 2.5D/3D ICs” can be downloaded free of charge from the eSilicon website.
