High-Speed Serial Computational Offload and Integrated Memory Devices Deliver Breakthrough Performance while Reducing Board Space, Power, Pin Count and Cost for Networking, Communications and Compute Applications
Traditional memory architectures do not deliver the density, speed or flexibility required to meet the scalable requirements of sustained packet rates growing to over 600 million packets per second with dozens of data accesses per packet. The flexible Bandwidth Engine IC family delivers density, performance, power and economic advantages, offering the highest bandwidth capability of any single-chip networking memory device. Bandwidth Engine products are engineered and built for high-reliability, extended lifetime carrier-class and enterprise applications.
“Increased network traffic and high-availability services are driving the aggregate networking data rates in excess of terabits per second, while requiring even more processing, monitoring and management of each packet,” stated
This second generation Bandwidth Engine family contains three purpose-built variants. The MoSys® MSR620 “Burst” device offers the highest data throughput for high-speed 100G to 400G packet buffer applications. The MSR720 “Access” device has lower power, over four times the size and twice the transaction rate when compared to the latest version of a traditional QDR SRAM. The MSR720 IC maintains full data coherency, high command efficiency and simplified scheduling, resulting in a performance of up to 4.5 billion memory accesses per second, well-suited to the requirements of state and queuing applications, where repeat access of the same address is needed. The MSR820 “Macro” device, in conjunction with the highest bandwidth density and access rate, also delivers offload acceleration of management, statistics and accounting capabilities used in carrier networks. Like its first generation predecessor, the Bandwidth Engine 2 family is designed to meet high reliability, carrier-grade network equipment requirements. In addition to this base reliability, the second generation includes provisions for optional use of MoSys’ Bit Safe™ Self Test and Self Repair Technology designed to enable extensive in-field test and repair capabilities to further enhance reliability and flexibility. MoSys is now accepting production orders for the MSR720, MSR620 and MSR820 devices.
