Designing Networking Chips


Susheel Tadikonda, vice president of networking and storage at Synopsys, talks about what’s changed in the way networking chips are being designed to deal with a massive increase in data. One of those shifts involves software-defined networking, where the greatest complexity resides in the software. That also has a big impact on the entire design flow, from pre-silicon to post-silicon. htt... » read more

Should AI Mimic Real Life?


There is a lot we still do not know about how the human body and brain works. Today's machines are far from being anything like as capable, or power frugal, or having the ability to make decisions. True – machines have been made for highly specific tasks that can now beat a human. But there lies one of the human mind's greatest features – when it makes mistakes, it asks how it can do better... » read more

High-Speed SerDes At 7nm


eSilicon’s David Axelrad discusses the challenges with 56Gbps and 112Gps SerDes, and why the switch from analog to digital is required for performance and low power. https://youtu.be/E-CU8TLvjjc » read more

How To Build A Modern Network


There have, in recent years, been fundamental changes to the way in which networks are implemented, as data demands have necessitated a wider breadth of functionality and elevated degrees of operational performance. Accompanying all this is a greater need for accurate measurement of such performance benchmarks in real time, plus in-depth analysis in order to identify and subsequently resolve an... » read more

Network Telemetry Solutions For Data Center And Enterprise Networks


One of the most prominent trends in the networking community in the last few years is network telemetry, which enables accurate measurement of the network’s performance in real-time. In this white paper we will discuss how network telemetry is evolving in modern data center networks. Details will then be given of how the generic approach to network telemetry that has been taken by Marvell is... » read more

Mobile Edge Computing For The IoE


More attention is being focused on the edges of networks as the IoE begins taking hold. The reason is that the current wireless infrastructure is inadequate for handling the billions of endpoints that will make up the IoE. So for the IoE to realize its full potential, it will either require some sort of add-on infrastructure or a new discovery in physics. Edge networks were not always suc... » read more
