Samsung puts Alphawave IP in hyperscaler’s datacenter
“This design win with a strategic global hyperscaler will be the first of many that leverage the Samsung platform in 2021 and beyond,” said Jongshin Shin, vice president of foundry IP development at Samsung Electronics, in a statement issued by Alphawave.
The design win is one of the first hyperscaler design wins globally beyond 5nm, Alphawave said. Hyperscaler is usually taken to be a company such as Facebook, Amazon, Google or Microsoft that make very large investments in data centers from which they can provide Internet services.
Meanwhile Alphawave has announced that its ZeusCore DSP-based serdes has been demonstrated on TSMC’s 5nm manufacturing process.
The ZeusCORE extra-long-reach (XLR) multi-standard-serdes (MSS) IP is the highest performance serdes in the Alphawave IP product portfolio. It is a configurable IP that supports NRZ and PAM data center standards from 1Gbps to 112Gbps and includes a most likely sequence detector (MLSD).
