MoSys (NASDAQ: MOSY), a leader in semiconductor solutions that enable fast, intelligent data access for network and communications systems, today announced it has joined the Xilinx® Alliance Program with its high-performance, high-access rate Bandwidth Engine® family of integrated circuits (ICs) which are intended for 100G and beyond networking systems that utilize Xilinx FPGAs.
The Xilinx Alliance Program is a collaborative worldwide ecosystem of qualified companies that have a proven track record of delivering products and services on Xilinx programmable platforms to further the development of All Programmable technologies. Leveraging open platforms and standards, Xilinx has built this ecosystem to help accelerate design productivity while minimizing risk to customers. Participating companies provide qualified, optimized products and services that contribute to a broad selection of industry-standard solutions available for use with Xilinx FPGAs.
As the inventor of the GigaChip™ Interface, a board-level, open, CEI-11 compatible transport protocol for highly efficient serial chip-to-chip communications, MoSys has been collaborating with Xilinx, Inc. to enable 100G and faster networking solutions. Through the GigaChip Interface, MoSys has demonstrated and proven interoperability between its Bandwidth Engine ICs and Xilinx Virtex®-6 FPGAs and Virtex®-7 FPGAs.
“We are delighted to be a member of the Xilinx Alliance Program,” stated Michael Sporer, Director of IC Marketing for MoSys. “Through technology collaboration, early access to its technology roadmap, and the use of key industry standards, we are able to accelerate our own product development while increasing confidence and reducing the design cycle of our mutual end customers. The Bandwidth Engine family delivers unprecedented performance for random access, buffering and offload acceleration.”“As an innovator of critical new architectures, it is crucial for MoSys to accelerate the product design process of its unmatched serial, high-access technology without compromising quality,” said Chris Hallahan, Senior Manager of the Xilinx Alliance Program at Xilinx. “We believe that including MoSys in our ecosystem underscores our commitment to support our customers’ access to the latest, highest-performance technologies for data access and throughput.”
