Denali asserts its Databahn offerings enabled BroadLight's (search for BroadLight) developers to quickly design and verify DDR memory systems that meet or exceed OEM high-speed PON design requirements and time-to-market windows.
"Memory bandwidth is a significant bottleneck in today's high-performance networking applications," Igor Elkanovich, vice president of VLSI at BroadLight. "Denali's expertise in memory system design and verification has been instrumental to our market leadership and has allowed our designers to rapidly address customer design requirements and networking applications, achieving over 40 GPON worldwide design wins and delivery of several GPON products to our customers."
The Databahn product is designed to provide a comprehensive IP offering with configurability for a given customer application. Denali says its Databahn DDR memory controllers offer a powerful, multi-port approach with configurable features and functionality to satisfy system performance requirements in terms of bandwidth, latency, and power reduction.
"Today's SoCs require specialized DDR memory systems that must address power, performance, and time-to-market," said Brian Gardner, vice president of IP products for Denali. "Our Databahn DDR controller is a market-proven solution that offers a range of programmability and configurability to address application specific performance. We are pleased to work with BroadLight and participate in making their customers successful."
