NEC Electronics Corp. has licensed Rambus Inc.'s RaSer X backplane serial link interface for high-performance ASIC applications. The Rambus RaSer X interface solution is designed for interconnect problems associated with backplane environments in high-speed enterprise switches and routers, storage area network switches and blade servers.

The addition of RaSer X to NEC Electronics' own lineup of serial interface solutions is expected to allow customers an even greater selection of high performance, low risk solutions. The first serial link cell licensed to NEC Electronics will operate at 6.25Gbps.

"Our customers need the flexibility to tackle a variety of protocols, applications and frequency ranges," said Tetsuo Yoshino, VP of the 1st systems operations unit at NEC Electronics. "Rambus's serial link technology complements our existing offerings by bringing added value to our customers with flexible solutions that enable faster time-to-market. We look forward to exploring future opportunities with Rambus," Yoshino added.

The RaSer X solution incorporates a multi-tap transmitter and receiver equalizer, low-jitter transmitter, high-sensitivity receiver and calibrated on-chip termination resistors, as well as the Auto-Adapt(TM) feature that continuously adjusts multiple coefficients of both the transmit Feed Forward Equalizer (FFE) and the receive Decision Feedback Equalizer (DFE) to compensate for humidity and temperature variances.
