eASIC verbetert prestaties van volledig gevirtualiseerd RAN-systeem van ASOCS

SANTA CLARA, Californië –(BUSINESS WIRE)– eASIC Corp. (@easic), een fabrieksloos bedrijf in halfgeleiders dat op maat gemaakte IC-platforms levert, maakt samen met ASOCS Ltd, systeemleverancier voor virtuele basisstations, bekend dat het eASIC Nextreme-3-platform is ingezet voor aanzienlijk verbeterde prestaties van zijn hardwareacceleratie voor modemverwerkingseenheden van de derde generatie. De levering van het eASIC Nextreme-3-platform maakt deel uit van een overeenkomst over de ontwikkeling van op maat gemaakte silicium middelen voor de versnelling van een nieuwe vorm van netwerkvirtualisatie met behulp van het eASIC Nextreme-3-platform. De unieke architectuur an ASOCS stelt software op alle lagen en in alle delen van een basisstation in staat te draaien in virtuele machines, op standaard IT-servers met Intel Xeon-processoren en met een gekoppeld hardware-versnellend multi-RAT-middel op basis van het platform van eASIC.


eASIC Enables Improved Real-Time Hardware Acceleration Performance for ASOCS’ Fully Virtualized RAN (vRAN) Solution

SANTA CLARA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– eASIC Corp. (@easic), a fabless semiconductor company that delivers a custom integrated circuit (IC) platform (eASIC Platform), and ASOCS Ltd., a solution provider of virtual Base Stations (vBS) today announced that the eASIC Nextreme-3 platform was used by ASOCS to deliver significantly higher performance in its third generation modem processing unit (MPU) Hardware Acceleration (HWA). The delivery of the eASIC Nextreme-3 platform is part of a definitive agreement to develop custom silicon devices for the acceleration of next-generation network virtualization using the eASIC Nextreme-3 platform. The unique ASOCS architecture enables the software of all layers and functions of a base station to run in virtual machines, on standard commercial-off-the-shelf, Intel® Xeon-processors-based high volume IT servers, with a network attached multi-RAT hardware acceleration device based on the eASIC platform.

“We are delighted to not only deliver the first hardware accelerators based on the ASOCS architecture, but also meet their stringent performance requirements,” said Jasbinder Bhoot, eASIC, Vice President of Worldwide Sales and Marketing. “Our eASIC platform is ideal for applications that require new levels of compute and process intensive workloads while reducing power consumption over what can be achieved using FPGAs. The ASOCS architecture, comprised of the modem processing unit (MPU) and the modem programming language (MPL) software abstraction layer, enables the complete virtualization and software abstraction of the vBS L1 PHY.”

“The value of the single mask used to configure the eASIC Nextreme-3 devices is quite remarkable,” said Gaby Guri, Vice President of Research and Development, ASOCS. “It enabled us to meet all of our acceleration goals, which not only consist of performance, but also power consumption, and a critical schedule to first silicon. We look forward to continuing our relationship with eASIC.”

ASOCS will demonstrate its fully virtualized Base Station (vBS) solution this week during Mobile World Congress, Barcelona at the IMA Pavilion in Hall 2, Booth 2E46.
