The two companies will work together to initially research and develop RapidIO switches operating at 40 Gbps per port based on the RapidIO 10xN specification.
Switches developed under this program will enable manufacturers of next-generation wireless base stations, Cloud RAN (radio access network), mobile-edge computing and other evolving carrier networks to stay ahead of mushrooming data usage accompanying the burgeoning use of portable devices.
'From design to implementation and volume manufacturing, this collaborative R&D effort is being established to expedite to market a new generation of RapidIO products to address the needs of higher-capacity, higher-bandwidth base stations and other carrier platforms,' said
The RapidIO 10xN switches will offer an optimal combination of low 100ns latency, 40 Gbps per port of bandwidth and scalability to greater than 4 billion nodes in a network. The jointly developed devices will target the new generation of base station platforms such as LTE-Advanced (LTE-A), C-RAN, and 5G, but will also find use in emerging architectures such as base stations co-located with high-performance computing (HPC) platforms.
IDT's production 20 Gbps per port switches are currently the de facto interconnect standard for the clustering of DSPs, microprocessors, and ASICs in existing 3G and 4G base stations deployed worldwide. Under the collaboration, the companies will build on the current production switch and bridge portfolio, with plans to make their first jointly developed products available in the second half of 2015.
'Advancements in interconnect are essential for the continued evolution of communications infrastructure,' said
'This collaboration between IDT and eSilicon, which will move RapidIO technology to 40 Gbps per port and beyond going to 100 Gbps, is a significant step forward for the growing RapidIO ecosystem,' said
eSilicon, a leading independent semiconductor design and manufacturing solutions provider, delivers custom ICs and custom IP to OEMs, independent device manufacturers (IDMs), fabless semiconductor companies (FSCs) and wafer foundries through a fast, flexible, lower-risk, automated path to volume production. eSilicon serves a wide variety of markets including communications, computing, consumer, industrial and medical. www.esilicon.com.
