Networking ASICs for Fast, Efficient Networks
Socionext is the recognized leader in ultra‐high‐speed CMOS data converters for the telecom and data-com markets. Our high-performance ASICs are used in a variety of communications and networking applications, including long haul and metro networks and data centers.
We were the first to provide advanced network SoC ASIC solutions utilizing advanced converter technology, enabling and accelerating the adoption of coherent transceivers and technology into the market. Today, we are developing our fourth generation of CMOS-based converters, supporting sample rates up to 128GSa/s. Our converter technology is used throughout the 100G and 400G optical networks that power today's Internet, and is enabling the terabit and other next-generation optical networks of tomorrow.
These, highly complex mixed signal devices integrate multiple channels of ultra-high speed, high performance ADC and DACs alongside several hundreds of millions of gates of custom DSP logic, all on a single piece of silicon.
Developing such highly integrated, complex SoCs requires a detailed understanding of noise isolation, signal integrity, thermal management, packaging and physical design. Our proprietary and patented technologies, along with decades of experience in high-performance ASIC and converter designs, enable us to meet these tough design challenges.
With a proven track record of mass production with leading-edge technologies and processes, Socionext is a key supplier for the next-generation telecom and data networks required to meet the ever-increasing demand for bandwidth.
