Ethernet, the tried-and-true networking
protocol, continues to evolve to meet bandwidth requirements. With the explosion
of data driven by social networking, streaming videos, on-line gaming, and more,
the Ethernet protocol is supporting these demands with faster speeds, lower
power consumption, and smaller area use. This webinar will review the drivers
behind Ethernet developments for data center networks and how the new DesignWare
Enterprise 40G Ethernet MAC and PCS Controller IP meets these demands. We will
also review the complete solution from Synopsys consisting of the Enterprise 40G
MAC, Enterprise 40G PCS and Enterprise 10G PHY.

What the
registrant will learn:

  • Market factors driving the demand for Enterprise Ethernet
  • Introduction to the DesignWare Enterprise Ethernet Solution for Data Centers
  • Complete solution for Enterprise Ethernet designers from Synopsys

Who should attend:
Systems designers, SoC
designers, project managers, business development managers
