Avago Introduces SerDes Core in 28-nm Process Technology Using LeCroy Oscilloscope
LeCroy Corp. announced that Avago Technologies will use LeCroy's WaveMaster 8 Zi-A Oscilloscope to demonstrate 30 Gbps performance with its new Serializer/Deserializer (SerDes) core in 28-nm process technology. The demonstration will take place in the LeCroy booth (#307) at the DesignCon 2011 exhibition in the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA, from February 1-2.
"LeCroy is honored that Avago chose its WaveMaster 8 Zi-A to provide the record-breaking bandwidth and signal fidelity needed to support their new high speed technologies," said President and Chief Executive Officer Tom Reslewic. "We're pleased to offer DesignCon attendees the opportunity to preview the real-world application of LeCroy and Avago technologies and discuss their own needs with experts from both companies."
LeCroy's new line of WaveMaster 8 Zi-A oscilloscopes provide up to 45 GHz of bandwidth and 120 GS/s of sample rate – the world's highest bandwidth and fastest sample rate real-time oscilloscope – combined with 768 Megapoints of analysis memory. The model that Avago is using for the DesignCon demonstration provides 20 GHz bandwidth on four channels, currently the highest performance and signal fidelity available on four measurement channels.
