Breakthrough SerDes Technology Utilized In General Dynamics' Chip-To-Chip Communications
SAN FRANCISCO, CA - May 5, 2003 - TriCN, a leading developer of intellectual property (IP) for high-speed I/O interface technology, today announced an agreement to license its TriDL (Digital Dynamic Deskewing Link) SerDes Technology to General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems (GDAIS). GDAIS is a recognized leader in electronics systems design and integration for government and commercial applications.
TriCN is providing GDAIS with its TriDL SerDes, an industry breakthrough technology employing a fully digital design. TriDL delivers 2.5 Gb/s throughput for GDAIS chip-to-chip communications applications in the IBM 0.13um process. Because of its purely digital implementation, TriDL offers significant savings in power and chip area over comparable analog solutions, while also eliminating interface performance degradation through the use of dynamic skew compensation.
"GDAIS's considered decision to license our TriDL SerDes technology represents a critically important validation of our approach to solving the challenges of maximizing interface I/O performance", commented Ron Nikel, Chief Technology Officer with TriCN. "This latest customer design win is yet another client affirmation indicating a growing market acceptance of our TriDL technology."
