Credo First to Publicly Demonstrate 112G SerDes in 7nm at TSMC’s 2018 China OIP Forum

San Jose, California, Oct 30th, 2018 – Credo, a global innovation leader in high performance, low power connectivity solutions for 100G, 200G, and 400G port enabled networks, today announced it will demonstrate its advanced high performance, low power, mixed-signal 112Gbps PAM4 SerDes developed in TSMC’s 7nm process technology node at this week’s TSMC 2018 Open Innovation Platform (OIP) Ecosystem Forum in Nanjing, China.

“We are proud to be on the world stage with our partner TSMC showcasing 112G SerDes in TSMC’s advanced 7nm node,” said Jeff Twombly, vice president of marketing and business development of Credo. “End-to-end 112Gbps per lane connections are key to enabling the industry to rapidly build out the next-generation 100G, 400G and 800G Ethernet cloud networks and now merchant silicon providers and system ASIC developers have clear path forward to deliver the required higher bandwidth solutions at lower power and optimum lane count configurations.”

In 2016 Credo demonstrated its unique mixed-signal 112G PAM4 SerDes technology in 28nm to enable low power 100G per lambda optical modules and then quickly migrated the architecture to 16nm to deliver innovative, complementary 112G electrical connectivity solutions.  This third port of Credo’s silicon hardened 112G SerDes architecture to 7nm now allows SoC developments to confidently embrace TSMC advanced 7nm processing node.
