Bandwidth Engine

Breaking Network Performance Barriers for 100G Systems and Beyond

MoSys’ Bandwidth Engine® Family of ICs is a computational and memory solution with serial interfaces for 100G networking equipment. First generation Bandwidth Engine is optimized for memory access performance, capable of up to 2.7 Giga-accesses per second, up to 192 Gbps throughput, and up to 1.0 Giga-operations per second when utilizing the onboard ALU.Bandwidth Engine Scalable Architecture

The device architecture relies on three elements:

  • A 576Mb multi-banked and multi-partitioned memory array built with high performance, high density 1T-SRAM® memory core.
  • Onboard ALUs for the acceleration of common statistics functions in networking applications.
  • Sixteen lanes of low latency SerDes, compatible with CEI-11G, supporting full duplex, concurrent operations with a packetized, 90% efficient GigaChip™ Interface transport protocol.
