Huawei Selects eASIC for Transport Network Backhaul
October 26, 2014
Santa Clara, CA – October 27, 2014 – eASIC Corporation, a leading provider of Single Mask Adaptable ASIC devices, today announced that Huawei is using eASIC’s Nextreme-3 28 nm devices to meet the increased system performance and aggressive costs required by Transport Network Products. Due to the increased throughput, Transport Networks require twice the clock performance of traditional communications.
Huawei investigated multiple options to meet the demanding performance, power and total cost of ownership targets set by the global operators, eASIC’s 28 nm Single Mask Adaptable devices enabled Huawei to meet all the operator requirements.
“eASIC Nextreme-3 28 nm device can provide higher performance, lower power to meet Huawei product requirements”, said Ronnie Vasishta, president and CEO of eASIC Corporation. “Expansion to the higher throughput in transport network is inevitable and this requires innovative solutions that can only be addressed with custom silicon. We are excited to be shipping products to Huawei and to help them meet their aggressive performance, power and cost objectives, as FPGAs can no longer meet these critical requirements.”
