Silicon Logic Engineering Develops 150 Gb/s Interlaken IP Core

Silicon Logic Engineering Inc. (SLE), a high-end semiconductor design services division of Tundra Semiconductor Corporation, announced the availability of a new 150Gb/s high speed Interlaken protocol IP core for use in ASIC designs. SLE’s new Interlaken IP Core is now available with more than twice the performance of the standard 60Gb/s version. This new high-speed core delivers the performance and bandwidth that new designs require, now with higher data transfer rates. The higher performance Interlaken Core is fully scalable, ideally suited for multiple generations of future network switches, routers and storage equipment. The scalability is achieved through the combination of the SERDES speed (3.125Gbps to 6.375Gbps) and a variable number of SERDES lanes (1 to 24).

SLE is currently shipping the new 150Gb/s core, and customers report that the IP delivers the highest data transfer rates available on the market today. “SLE continues to bring innovative, industry-first technology to market” said Jeff West , Vice President of Design Services, SLE – a division of Tundra Semiconductor. “Tundra’s customers have come to rely on the quality and reliability of SLE’s custom design services and IP core development.”

Designed and tested to be easily synthesizable into any ASIC technology, SLE’s Interlaken IP Core was built to work with off-the-shelf SERDES from most leading technology vendors. Using the vendor specific proven SERDES allows SLE customers to quickly integrate the Interlaken IP Core into the customer’s technology of choice.

“Tundra is committed to delivering outstanding design services and quality IP to customers. SLE continues to demonstrate our commitment to world-class design and development and Tier 1 customer response to this enhanced Interlaken core demonstrates strong market acceptance of this first-to-market IP offering,” said Daniel Hoste, President and Chief Executive Officer, Tundra Semiconductor.
