Socionext to Showcase Advanced SoC Design Solutions at DesignCon 2020

Leading silicon supplier, Socionext Inc, will be showcasing its advanced SoC designs including 112G SerDes, 120+ GS/s ADC/DAC, PCIe Gen5, high-performance memory, multi-die package design solutions, and AI technology at DesignCon 2020. The event is scheduled from January 28-30 in Santa Clara, California, USA.

During the exhibition, Socionext will showcase superior-quality, high-performance, multi-die package methodology and designs. Offerings include FanOut Wafer Level Packaging (FOWLP), RF/mmWave solutions, and multi-die chipsets supporting a wide range of process nodes, interconnect and die-to-die (D2D) interface. Furthermore, the company is offering Antenna-in-Package (AiP) which addresses the needs of the IoT and 5G telecom markets requiring miniaturization and antenna integration to the same package over the silicon. Socionext’s advanced packaging capabilities help companies quickly and cost-effectively fulfill their complex packaging requirements.

It offers a high-performance SerDes macro with up to 112Gbps per channel for up to 400G networks. These capabilities are further extended by utilizing its ultra-high-speed ADC & DAC technologies, a key component in coherent and direct detect optical networking SoCs enabling Terabit (Tbps) datacenter interconnect (DCI) solutions for hyperscale cloud operators. Network providers need to quickly stay ahead of the growing, on-demand, content driven environment with the emergence of 5G. With the need for super-fast AI computational speed and performance, 400G adoption will drive the need for increased PCIe Express bandwidth replacing 100G/200G based network infrastructure. Socionext offers PCIe Gen5 technology for bridging the IO gap between Server CPUs and the host bus adapters that create the 400G network.

AI applications running on the cloud data center demand greater interconnect bandwidths, larger on-chip memory, and ultra-low latency. Socionext provides extended 2.5/3D HBM+, multi-die packaging, and advanced process node solutions for meeting and exceeding these emerging requirements. At this year's DesignCon, Daniel Lambalot, Director of Engineering at Socionext, along with experts from Micron and Cadence Design Systems, will be addressing such design complexity by delivering a presentation on "Designing Next Generation Memory Interfaces: Modeling, Analysis, and Tips" on Wednesday, Jan. 29, 2019 from 2-2:45 PM at Ballroom A.

Additionally, two members from Socionext will be presenting at the Ansys Booth 745. On Thursday, Jan. 30 at 3PM, Daniel Lambalot will explain challenges of designing 112 Gbps channels via a presentation titled "Modelling and Measurement Correlation for a 112Gbps Package + PCB Using HFSS and Siwave With HFSS Regions." On the same day at 4:30 PM, Takafumi Shimada, Electromagnetic Analysis Specialist at Socionext, will present "Automating the Multi-Physics Simulation Process for LSI-Package-Board" and introduce Socionext's latest simulation automation and parametric verification process of pre-design interconnects.

In addition to offering cutting edge IP, Socionext is developing ASICs on the leading 7nm/6nm/5nm process technology. In the mean time, the company is also engaging with top foundries to develop products on the next generation technology. It continues to be at the technology forefront in order to support customers who are using leading edge process nodes for applications in high performance data center and low power mobile devices.

At the event, Socionext will also demonstrate a video solution for analyzing live video streaming. The computer vision system is powered by the Socionext SynQuacer SC2A11, a scalable, ARM-based multi-core processor, designed to support the most demanding edge computing and real-time data processing applications. It enables real-time video input processing, and provides an easy-to-use interface for managing multiple IP video streams.
