Synopsys Demonstrated Ethernet PHY IP in 5nm Process
2 February, 2021
DesignWare 112G is aimed to reach channels for up to 800G hyperscale data center, networking, and AI SoCs requiring high bandwidth and low latency
Synopsys announced the silicon proof of DesignWare® 112G Ethernet PHY IP in 5nm FinFET process. DesignWare 112G Ethernet PHY is an integral part of Synopsys’ IP portfolio for high-performance cloud computing applications, including widely used protocols such as PCI Express, DDR, HBM, Die-to-Die, CXL and CCIX. “The Ethernet PHY IP solution in 5nm FinFET process enables designers to significantly reduce their integration risk for a faster path to silicon success,” said John Koeter, senior vice president of marketing and strategy for IP at Synopsys.
An integral part of Synopsys’ SerDes IP portfolio, DesignWare 112G is aimed to reach channels for up to 800G hyperscale data center, networking, and AI SoCs requiring high bandwidth and low latency. It supports Pulse-Amplitude Modulation 4-Level (PAM-4), Non- Return-to-Zero (NRZ) signaling, and independent, per lane data rates to address broad range of protocols and applications. The configurable transmitter and DSP-based receiver with analog-to-digital converter (ADC) enable designers to control and optimize signal integrity and performance.
Last month Synopsys announced a collaboration with Samsung Foundry to deliver a fully qualified flow for Samsung 5-nanometer (nm) and 3nm process nodes to achieve optimal power, performance, area (PPA) and accelerate time-to-results (TTR). “Our collaboration has been instrumental in delivering state-of-the-art signoff flows for our advanced 5 to 3nm process nodes,” said Sangyun Kim, vice president of Foundry Design Technology at Samsung Electronics.
Synopsys’ revenue for the fourth quarter was $1.025 billion, compared to $851.1 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2019. Revenue for fiscal year 2020 was $3.685 billion, an increase of 9.6 percent from $3.361 billion in fiscal year 2019. “In fiscal 2021, we aim to surpass $4 billion in revenue,” said Aart de Geus, chairman and co-CEO of Synopsys.
