MoSys Announces Macnica Americas Support of GigaChip Interface for High-Performance Chip-to-Chip Communications

MoSys announced that Macnica Americas will support the GigaChip(TM) Interface in its distribution and technology innovation business. The GigaChip Interface (GCI) is a scalable, high-performance, serial protocol for chip-to-chip communications that is differentiated in efficiency and reliability, resulting in system level benefits of reduced power, cost and complexity. Current implementations built with compatible CEI-11G or XFI SerDes electrical transport standards deliver up to 144 Gigabits per second (Gbps) of full duplex data throughput using 16 SerDes lanes when running at a 10G rate. A key differentiator for the GCI protocol is high transport efficiency, even for small payloads. Alternative serial interfaces are typically less than 50% efficient when transferring 8 bit and 16 bit data, which means that they deliver less than half the performance at a given bandwidth. The combination of 90% transport efficiency, from small to large payloads, with power efficient short reach physical interconnect makes GCI ideal for co-processor, memory, or multi-chip communication. The interface also includes CRC error detection and automatic error recovery provisions to meet the high reliability requirements of enterprise, service provider, and mission-critical communications and compute applications. GCI is an open, royalty-free interface specification designed for use with MoSys' Bandwidth Engine(R) family of ICs and is suitable for any chip-to-chip interconnect.

Macnica Americas, Inc. Releases Multi-Channel High Definition Video over 10G Ethernet Transport Device

Macnica Americas, Inc. released the MAI3140, a silicon transceiver capable of transporting up to 8 channels of SDI video over a standard 10Gb Ethernet network. The device comes in transmit and receive versions to allow a complete Ethernet link to be implemented. Forward error correction is added to the transmitted data making the link lossless -- important to prevent dropped video frames and video flickering and /or freezing. The device accepts video in the form of 3G-SDI, HD-SDI or SD-SDI, encapsulates the video streams in UDP/IP + RTP, adds error correction and transmits the traffic through a standard XAUI 10GbE interface. A companion device receives the data, performs any needed error correction and outputs the video streams in the format received. The device is fully compliant with SMPTE2022 clause 1/2 and 5/6 ensuring compatibility with any third party equipment also using the standard. The amount of forward error correction can be varied by increasing the FEC matrix stored in external memory and a per-channel basis. Applications for the device include broadcast video transport equipment, video switching in studios, remote surgical applications, surveillance and aggregation of multiple HD camera streams to a single storage device or display. The MAI3140 is available immediately.
