Scalable architecture paves the way for transition to 400GbE Ethernet 

SUNNYVALE, Calif. – February 1, 2017 – Rambus Inc. (NASDAQ:RMBS) today announced its industry-leading 56G SerDes PHY which delivers enterprise-class performance across the challenging signal environments typical of high-speed communication systems. Developed on cutting-edge second generation FinFET (Fin Field Effect Transistor) process technology, this solution meets the growing demands of communications and data center applications. The new 56G SerDes PHY also provides both PAM-4 and NRZ signaling with a scalable and flexible ADC-based (analog-to-digital converter) architecture to address long-reach backplane requirements for the industry transition from 100Gb to 400Gb Ethernet applications.

“To meet the growing demand for high-speed Ethernet, we have developed a scalable new architecture to address the future requirements of higher speeds and increased bandwidth,” said Luc Seraphin, senior vice president and general manager of the Rambus Interface division. “Developing on advanced FinFET technology allows us to deliver low-power solutions and a higher degree of integration to support challenging networking ASIC designs. This technology also addresses process challenges and is capable of supporting demanding systems with extended product lifecycles.”
