Product, Technology and Show Highlights:
  • MoSys Bandwidth Engine IC Eliminates Memory Bottlenecks with serial GigaChip® Interface.
  • MoSys LineSpeed PHY ICs Deliver Signal Integrity and Low Power for modules and Line Cards.
    • LineSpeed 100G Low Power Retimer (MSH110) and 100G Gearbox (MSH310) performing full duplex 4x25G traffic over passive QSFP28 copper cable from multiple vendors enables 100G QSFP, CFP4 and CFP2 modules.
    • A product technology demonstration will take place at FCI booth #817, featuring the extended reach ability of LineSpeed 100G PHYs by driving high-speed signal transmissions at 25/28G across an AirMAX VSe® connector and an FCI backplane using a LineSpeed 100G Multi-Mode Gearbox (MSH310).
  • MoSys’ IC Spotlight Analyzer development environment will be demonstrated with Bandwidth Engine and LineSpeed products.
  • MoSys will participate in the panel discussion, Will the Optical Backplane Ever Happen? John Monson, vp of marketing and sales for MoSys, will join panelists from Cisco, Intel, Google and Juniper Network, to address the opportunities and challenges for optical backplanes as Moore’s Law continues to drive for higher signaling rates.


Taking place annually in Silicon Valley, DesignCon is the premier
educational conference and technology exhibition for electronic
design engineers in the high speed communications and
semiconductor communities.



DesignCon 2015 takes place January 27-30; Expo is January 28-29.

About IC Spotlight

MoSys’ IC Spotlight™ Analyzer toolkit allows system designers to focus
on product development with a powerful and easy to use analysis and
debugging tool for high-speed serial I/O channels on either Bandwidth
Engine serial memories or LineSpeed 100G data path products. IC
Spotlight connects to a MoSys product through a sideband SPI, MDIO, or
I2C port and takes advantage of on-chip resources for rapid product
bring up, configuration and analysis. One of the many capabilities
allows developers to measure bit-error rates (BER) measurements on
multiple channels while monitoring and adjusting high-speed serial
transceiver parameters in real-time. The graphical user interface of IC
Spotlight supports point and click macro recording while those who
prefer command line have access to a python shell with scripting
