The Bandwidth Engine serial memory and data acceleration family solves fundamental system bottlenecks resulting in accelerated performance
SAN JOSE, Calif., Feb. 15, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — MoSys (NASDAQ:MOSY), a provider of semiconductor solutions that enable fast, intelligent data access for cloud networking, security, test and video systems, today announced that it has shipped in excess of 100,000 units of its Bandwidth Engine ICs. The serial memory device family delivers significant system performance, complexity, and economic benefits to an increasing number of high-speed data processing applications. With over 100,000 units in the field, proven benefits to systems and an impeccable quality record, the Bandwidth Engine family enables both increased intelligence and data rate acceleration.
“Our current customers are industry innovators that recognize and leverage the significant benefits of our unique serial memory technology,” said Len Perham, CEO and president of MoSys. “Delivering over 100,000 serial memory ICs into a variety of systems is a great testament to the manufacturability and quality of our products, as well as evidence of the innovation and leadership of our customers and partners.”
Data rates, as well as number of traffic types, users and devices, are increasing exponentially, requiring a distributed cloud network with flexible intelligence to manage this massive expansion. This advanced intelligence in the core network, in the servers and at the edge requires diverse capabilities to accelerate random processing tasks — tasks which are not well suited to the classic processing architecture and traditional large, slow companion memories. Offloading these functions to accelerators that are optimized for these tasks delivers better performance, as well as higher efficiency and lower system latency. MoSys’ extensive portfolio of Bandwidth Engines ICs supports the data processor engines to enable efficient, fast memory lookups and other offload functions that are highly memory-iterative, including statistics, flow classification, security lookups, and video processing.
The Bandwidth Engine and Programmable Search Engine ICs leverage MoSys’ fundamental patents for serial memory. The devices integrate low pin count serial interconnect, unique off-load technology, and a large, high access rate internal memory into a single device that solves critical memory bandwidth, memory access rate, board space and pin count bottlenecks commonly found in high-speed data processing applications. The latest Programmable Search Engine devices integrate programmable search-optimized engines that can perform customized algorithmic functions directly on the ICs’ integrated memory, thereby saving valuable memory cycles and reducing overall system latency.
Rapid design-in capability is supported through a robust and proven FPGA ecosystem with both Xilinx and Intel. The serial interface technology has also been used to connect the MoSys devices to ASICs and ASSPs. An FPGA-based data acceleration platform leveraging MoSys’ Bandwidth Engine technology enables customers to develop efficient, differentiated product performance across platforms.
