SAN FRANCISCO -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- MoSys (NASDAQ: MOSY), a leader in semiconductor solutions that enable fast, intelligent data access for network and communications systems, is demonstrating its industry leading Bandwidth Engine® interface, at 15.625G, using Xilinx’s latest Kintex® UltraScale™ FPGA. The demonstration shows MoSys’ capability to support over 400Gbps effective throughput and can be seen at OFC 2014 in MoSys’ booth #3584.

“We designed the second generation Bandwidth Engine IC to solve critical bottlenecks and intercept key technology performance points,” stated John Monson, VP of marketing for MoSys. “This demonstration showcases the true potential of our second generation Bandwidth Engine IC with the Kintex® UltraScale FPGA running at its native capability, enabling 200Gbps datapath applications in a single chip.”

“Xilinx is pleased to be demonstrating our latest Kintex® UltraScale FPGA with MoSys at OFC. The UltraScale architecture applies leading-edge ASIC techniques in a fully programmable architecture to enable multi-hundred gigabit-per-second levels of system performance with smart processing at full line rates. We are able to fully support MoSys’ Bandwidth Engine interface with the mid-speed GTH transceivers, and still have ample IO capability for datapath interconnect,” said Dave Myron, senior director of FPGA product management and marketing at Xilinx.

MoSys’ Bandwidth Engine Family of ICs is a computational and memory solution with serial interfaces for 100G+ networking equipment, offering the highest bandwidth capability of any single chip networking memory device. Compared to traditional networking memories, such as QDR SRAM or RLDRAM, the Bandwidth Engine IC family delivers density, performance, power and economic advantage, and is engineered and built for high-reliability, extended lifetime carrier-class and enterprise applications.

The OFC technical conference takes place March 9-13, 2014 with exhibitions running March 11-13, 2014 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.
