eASIC and Xelic Deliver CPRI to OTN Reference Design For SFP+ to Enable Fast C-RAN Deployment
December 17, 2014
Santa Clara, CA – December 17, 2014 – eASIC Corporation, (@easic) a fabless semiconductor company that delivers a custom IC platform (eASIC Platform), and Xelic, Inc., a fast leading supplier of silicon intellectual property (SIP) and IP-enabled design services, today announced the immediate availability of a CPRI to OTN reference design implemented in the eASIC Nextreme-3 28nm Platform. The reference design dramatically reduces development time for SFP+ applications used in C-RAN.
The reference design consists of Xelic’s CPRI to OTN IP core that has been verified by eASIC for implementation in the eASIC Nextreme-3 Platform. The reference design is available as parameterizable RTL that can be easily implemented in the eASIC Nextreme-3 Platform that meets the stringent low power and form factor requirements for implementation in SFP+ modules.
“We believe there is market demand for SFP+ solutions, driven primarily by the interest in C-RAN. We are pleased to be working with Xelic to provide our customers an optimized CPRI to OTN solution that is ideal for SFP+ applications”, said Jasbinder Bhoot, Vice President of Worldwide Marketing eASIC. “Xelic’s efficient implementation of the CPRI to OTN IP core enables OEMs to develop SFP+ solutions in the smallest eASIC Nextreme-3 device.”
“eASIC’s goal of reducing the overall cost of silicon customization is powerful and unique”, said Mark Gibson, President of Xelic, Inc. “The features of the eASIC Nextreme-3 device such as the 12.5G serdes, low power consumption and small form factor coupled with a fast development time allows OEMs to quickly deliver and deploy SFP+ solutions.”
