Today’s hyper-connected world requires sophisticated telecom and datacom systems to quickly and securely transmit data. We help make that high-quality transmission a reality by contributing to a wide range of networking applications, including optical backbone networks for long-haul communications, switches and routers for smooth communication traffic, supercomputers for high-speed simulations, and factory automation. Here are some highlights.
Custom SoC solutions, Networking and Data Communications
Socionext designs and develops, including advanced high performance SoC solutions for the server, storage and networking marketing with silicon featured in supercomputers, high-end storage systems. The portfolio includes 100G networking products and specialized computing platforms, with a total of more than 900 designs from 90nm to 200nm.
100-, 200- & 400-Gigabit Optical Communication Technologies
Socionext advanced CMOS converter technology which is used throughout the 100G and 400G optical networks that power today’s Internet, and enable terabit networks. Among other leading products are the industry’s first 4-channel 56GSa/s ADC based on a vertically integrated 65nm CMOS process, and a 4-channel 65Gbp/s DAC. Using these converters and working closely with system partners Socionext has developed a fully integrated, single-wavelength, 100Gbps CMOS coherent transceiver.
Our custom networking SoCs are used in the IT infrastructure around the world. We are helping launch the world’s leading 100- 200- and 400-Gigabit optical communication technologies, to meet today’s need for fast, reliable communication.
Our expertise in the high-speed communication field was demonstrated by our participation in a recent record-breaking field trial. In June 2015, for the first time ever, tens of terabits per second (38.4bps) were transported over a 762 kilometer fiber optic link. We helped make that feat possible because our technology was integrated into the state-of-the-art coherent receivers and transmitters used for this trial.
Networking, Routing & Switching
Our custom and networking ASICs are used in a variety of networking and communications applications, including broadband networking; enterprise networking; optical and WAN switching; core, edge and metro routing; WAN aggregation and central office access.
From Networking to Video Content Distribution
We help accelerate business innovation by supporting diverse industry needs – from IT infrastructure to manufacturing systems – with advanced network solutions.
At Socionext, we make a wide range of consumer and industrial applications possible, including VOD (video on demand), digital advertising, data centers, web-security applications and gateways.
For example, our video-distribution solution uses video compression and expansion technology to reduce the number of bands required for video distribution and storage. With the most advanced encoding process, we help display video content through products such as a:
- Real-time encoder for HEVC conversion of 4K/60p video using one chip.
- Real-time decoder for world-class 4K/60p HEVC video playback.
- Multi-transcode engine supporting various display devices for converting multiple videos at one time.
