“Start Your HBM/2.5D Design Today”, What Just Happened?
On March 9th 2016, SK hynix, Inc, Amkor Technology, Inc., eSilicon, Northwest Logic and Avery Design Systems presented a complete HBM supply chain solution at a “Start Your HBM/2.5D Design Today” seminar. HBM is a JEDEC memory standard that provides more bandwidth with a smaller footprint and much less power than DDR4. The seminar was attended by over 100 local technical experts from the Silicon Valley’s leading technology firms. The seminar was followed up with a webinar (click here to watch) and an HBM white paper.
“HBM/2.5D design is definitely a team sport. Strong collaboration and effective execution is needed for success. The same was true for the seminar, webinar and white paper. We brought together the collective expertise of five different companies to provide a cohesive, integrated story. This collaboration will ensure our customers can successfully bring to market HBM/2.5D products.” Mike Gianfagna, VP of marketing, eSilicon Corporation. Northwest Logic is excited to be part of this ecosystem and look forward to many successful customer deployments.
Mercury Systems And Northwest Logic Show IP Reuse Successes
Northwest Logic’s mission is to provide high-performance, high-quality, easy-to-use IP solutions. Having long term clients like Mercury Systems is validation of our commitment to this mission. Mercury Systems is the leading commercial provider of secure processing subsystems designed and made in the USA. “I have a really good impression of Northwest Logic’s products, support and documentation,” said Robert Stevens, Firmware Manager and lead FPGA design engineer at Mercury Systems’ Embedded Sensor Products Group. “We have worked with them for several years through various generations of FPGA families. Their IP is easy to integrate and accelerates our design times by allowing us to focus on our own IP development. This allows us to provide our end-users with an IP framework that in turn allows them to focus on their application designs. We have successfully used Express 3.0 Core and DMA IP over the years and I am a very satisfied customer.” Please click here for more info on Northwest Logic’s PCIe solutions.
Northwest Logic’s PCI Express 4.0 solution certified at the April PCI Express 3.0 Compliance Workshop!
Northwest Logic’s PCI Express 4.0 solution, including the Expresso 4.0 Core (PCIe 4.0 core) and Expresso DMA Bridge Core, in combination with the Xilinx Virtex-7 PHY (VC709 board), passed all Gold and Interoperability tests at the April 2016 PCI-SIG Compliance Workshop resulting in its certification. This testing was done with 8 lanes running at up to 8 Gbit/s. See the PCI-SIG Integrators List at http://pcisig.com/developers/integrators-list.
Northwest Logic will certify its Expresso 4.0 Core @ 16G as soon as PCI SIG offers this capability at a Compliance Workshop. The PCI Express 4.0 solution provides a robust and proven platform for developing PCI Express 4.0/3.1/2.1/1.1 based products. This solution is available for ASIC, structured ASIC, and FPGA platforms.
