Rambus and GLOBALFOUNDRIES to Deliver High-Speed SerDes on 22FDX® for Communications and 5G Applications

SUNNYVALE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

32G PHY will deliver power efficiency and performance for next-generation wireline and wireless infrastructure

Rambus Inc. (RMBS), a leading provider of semiconductor and IP products, today announced the availability of 32G Multi-protocol SerDes PHY on GLOBALFOUNDRIES 22nm FD-SOI (22FDX®) platform for high-volume, high-performance applications. Designed to meet the performance requirements of high-speed wireline, wireless 5G infrastructure and data center applications, the SerDes PHY delivers data rates up to 32 Gbps and supports multiple standards including PCIe 4.0, JESD204B/C, CPRI, and Ethernet.

“Boasting increasingly high performance and network density, Rambus 28G and 32G SerDes will be critical to 5G infrastructure, wireless base stations and remote radio heads, autonomous vehicles, data center optical switches and highly anticipated technologies like artificial intelligence and machine learning inferencing, smart cities, and more,” said Hemant Dhulla, vice president and general manager of IP Cores at Rambus. “By developing our high-speed interfaces on GF’s leading 22FDX process, we are able to deliver the high performance alongside reduced power and area required for these applications.”

“Rambus and GF have a long history of delivering leading-edge solutions on our processes,” said John Kent, vice president of IP at GLOBALFOUNDRIES. “Working together with Rambus enables us to provide our clients with power and area optimized high-speed SerDes interfaces to deliver leadership system solutions, while maintaining compatibility with industry standards.”

The 28G and 32G Multi-protocol SerDes (MPS) PHY is designed with a system-oriented approach, taking the interface, interconnect and channel into account when optimizing performance and features to maximize flexibility in today’s most challenging system environments and applications. These comprehensive high-speed SerDes IP solutions are optimized for power and area in long-reach channels typical of communications, networking and data center applications — making this PHY ideal for challenging high-performance wireline and wireless infrastructure environments.
