Company Overview of eASIC Corporation

Company Overview

eASIC Corporation, a fabless semiconductor company, manufactures eASIC platforms that reduce the cost of ownership and time to production of customized silicon devices. The company offers Nextreme family of devices that reduce development cost and turn-around times compared to standard cell ASICs, while reducing power consumption and unit cost for designs; Nextreme-3, a fourth generation eASIC platform; and Nextreme-2, a third generation eASIC platform. It also provides easicopy ASIC that provides OEMs with a path from Nextreme-3, Nextreme-2, or Nextreme devices to a cell-based easicopy ASIC, thereby enabling OEMs to further reduce device cost and power consumption, or increase performance; ...

eASIC Corp. and Comcores ApS Announces Immediate Availability of Common Public Radio Interface (CPRI) v6.1 Switch Reference Design

eASIC Corp. and Comcores ApS announced immediate availability of a common public radio interface (CPRI) v6.1 switch reference design. Ideally suited for manufacturers of next-generation LTE Advanced radio base stations and 5G networking equipment, it combines a Comcores CPRI Switch IP solution with eASIC’s Nextreme-3 silicon platform to offer a high-bandwidth solution for C-RAN (cloud or centralized radio access interface) fronthaul network applications. Now, designers have all the essential ingredients in a single integrated platform for bridging between virtually any radio access that uses optical or microwave transport, and a centralized baseband pool that uses CPRI for communication. Equipped with the basic building blocks for a CPRI switch – an I/Q cross-connect, an Ethernet switch and CPRI v6.1 controller IP – packaged as a complete reference design, customers can dramatically shorten design cycles, while cutting costs and mitigating the risks associated with designing 'from scratch.' A key requirement for fulfilling the industry’s vision for the C-RAN architecture is the availability of a high throughput, flexible fronthaul connection between the new network architecture of centralized baseband controllers and remote standalone radio heads at cell sites at line rates of up to 12.2 Gbps enabled in the CPRI v6.1 specification. Among the technical features of the new reference design from eASIC and Comcores are: Up to 52 ports non-blocking, user-plane switch using an eASIC N3XT1300_FC1517 device; Switching at antenna carrier (AxC) level; Low system clock rate of 245.76 MHz to optimize performance and power; Dynamically supports 1:1 connectivity, broadcast or multicast operation; Support for optional Ethernet switch for Control and Management; and Support for optional ORI compliant compression IP.

Intel Corporation Announces Plans to Develop Integrated Products with eASIC Corporation

Intel Corporation announced plans to develop integrated products with eASIC Corporation that combine processing performance and customizable hardware to meet the increasing demand for custom compute solutions for data centers and the “cloud.” The new parts will enable acceleration of up to two times that of a field programmable gate array (FPGA) for workloads like security and big data analytics while also speeding the time to market for custom application specific integrated circuit (ASIC) development by as much as 50%. The tremendous growth of cloud computing has spurred greater demand for customized chips that make a particular application or workload run faster. To enable this, eASIC plans to integrate its eASIC platform technology with future Intel® Xeon® processors, providing cloud service providers a highly customized, integrated hardware solution for their particular workload. eASIC’s technology can increase flexibility and fast-time-to-market when compared to traditional ASICs and increase performance and lower power consumption when compared to FPGAs. By integrating hardware accelerator solutions with the eASIC platform, Intel can deliver much faster and more flexible systems for cloud customers. This collaboration is part of Intel’s strategy to integrate reprogrammable technology with Intel Xeon processors to greatly improve performance, power and cost.

eASIC Corporation and Comcores Announce Availability of CPRI v6.1

eASIC Corporation and Comcores ApS announced the immediate availability of the Common Public Radio Interface (CPRI) v6.1 for eASIC’s Nextreme-3 28nm devices. With an increased line rate up to 12.165Gbps and improved line coding efficiency, CPRI v6.1 supports an increased RF signal bandwidth of up to 240MHz needed for the proliferation of C-RAN fronthaul networks. When combined with the new ETSI (European Telecommunications Standards Institute) ORI (Open Radio Interface) ISG (Industry Specifications Group) standard for 2:1 LTE lossless compression algorithm, the effective RF signal bandwidth for CPRI v6.1 can be increased to 480MHz bandwidth while meeting 3GPP LTE RF performance and latency requirements. The new CPRI v6.1 IP with integrated ORI compliant compression engine in an eASIC Nextreme-3 custom IC platform allow developers to implement more efficient digital DAS (Distributed Antenna Systems) and remote radio head solutions in a zero-footprint form factor. As an example a 2x2 low power radio can be deployed using a 240MHz signal bandwidth per antenna either in contiguous or non-contiguous spectrum applications making it ideal for high performance neutral-host multi-operator and multi-band DAS applications. Alternatively, a 4x4 radio head can be implemented using 120MHz bandwidth per antenna. The combination of eASIC Nextreme-3 custom IC platforms with 12.5Gbps serial transceivers and Comcores highly integrated CPRI v6.1 IP with compression engine compliant to ORI standard provides a compelling solution that consumes a fraction the power of alternatives, enabling zero-footprint radio modules and drastically reducing the amount of optic fiber connectivity.
