ClariPhy engages ANSYS power software to develop 100- to 400-gigabit semiconductor solutions


11-03-2015

To meet the explosive bandwidth demands of today's Internet backbone, data centers and cloud-based networks, ClariPhy has selected ANSYS integrated circuit power and reliability sign-off solutions to deliver fast, reliable and cost-efficient optical transport semiconductor solutions.

 

With the exponential increase in mobile communications driven by streaming video and social media applications, carriers worldwide are unable to keep pace with Internet growth. To solve that challenge, carriers are installing next-generation 400G networks, which places new demands on network designers trying to ensure signal integrity.

As a leading provider of 400G networking systems on a chip (SoCs), ClariPhy is leveraging ANSYS® RedHawk to ensure delivery of the most reliable optical transport semiconductor solutions. The ability to perform chip-package co-analysis (CPA) and thermal-aware electromigration (EM) verification, as well as scalable simulation capacity and performance with distributed machine processing (DMP) gave ClariPhy the confidence in the robustness of its complex SoC design.

"To deliver the industry's most advanced and fastest semiconductor solutions, we need to ensure world-class accuracy, performance and reliability," said Dr. Scott Powell, vice president of engineering with ClariPhy. "RedHawk's successful silicon tape-outs, multi-foundry certification and advanced technologies such as CPA, thermal analyses and DMP enable us to meet power noise and reliability requirements of our next-generation SoCs."  

"Serving as the preferred power noise and reliability solution for the development of the world's fastest 100- to 400-Gigabit SoCs is a testament to the power of RedHawk," said Fares Mubarak, ANSYS vice president and general manager. "We stand committed to delivering the best-in-class power noise reliability sign-off solutions to companies like ClariPhy."
