NEC Develops 12 Gbps Ultra-High-Speed Chip Interface

NEC Electronics announced a super-fast serial interface circuit technology, an essential component of system chips having large-scale integration (LSI) and used in next-generation broadband networks and high- speed computers.

NEC said its technology enables data transmission of 12 Gbps between LSI chips, or between equipment employing LSI chips. This transmission rate is three to four times faster than conventional transmission rates in current high-end servers or routers, despite the use of legacy printed board traces, wires or cables. NEC also noted that this rate is also five times faster than the PCI Express standard.
