Open-Silicon Shows Innovative Solutions at TSMC Open Innovation Platform® Ecosystem Forum, 2015

Demos and Speakers Showcase ASIC solutions for IoT, HPC, and Networking Applications

MILPITAS, CA--(Marketwired - September 16, 2015) - Open-Silicon, a system optimized ASIC solution provider, announced today it will demonstrate the company's Industrial IoT ASIC Platform, 28Gbps SerDes Evaluation Platform, and HMC 2.0 Memory Controller IP at TSMC OIP (Sept 17th, 2015 -- Santa Clara, CA). Open-Silicon will also present a paper on innovative solutions to bump routing for SoC designs with flip chip.



  1. Industrial IoT ASIC Platform -- This demonstrates end-to-end wireless communication between sensor hubs and cloud platform through a gateway device. The Industrial IoT system setup which features hardware accelerated security solution is a part of Open-Silicon's Spec2Chip IoT Platform, which allows IoT ASIC designs to be evaluated at system level.
  1. 28G SerDes Evaluation Platform -- This evaluation platform for ASIC development will enable the rapid deployment of chips and systems for high bandwidth networks. The platform includes a full board with packaged TSMC 28nm test chip, software and characterization data. The chip integrates a 28Gbps SerDes quad macro, using physical layer (PHY) IP and meets the compliance needs of the CEI-28G-VSR, CEI-25-LR and CEI-28G-SR specifications.
  1. HMC 2.0 Memory Controller ASIC IP -- This IP demo will showcase a platform based on Xilinx Virtex-7 XC7VX690T FPGA that includes a fully validated design that integrates HMC controller along with HMC exerciser functions. The demo platform allows quick evaluation of the HMC technology and performance testing of the HMC links.

When: 9/17/2015 (Thursday) 8 AM to 6 PM
Where: Exhibit Floor, Booth # 302, VCA Zone, Santa Clara Convention Center, CA
