Lisbon ACC100 FEC Accelerator Server Adapter Back to Exhibitor Page
Silicom’s eASIC ACC100 FEC Accelerator server adapter is based on the Intel vRAN Dedicated Accelerator ACC100, an Intel eASIC Nextreme-3S device. The ACC100 is packaged in a 35mmx35mm FC1156 package with 1.0mm ball pitch (some balls are de-populated to facilitate break-out). The ACC100 provides 4G (Turbo) and 5G (LDPC) encode and decode via PCIe interface.
The next generation telecom networks (5G) have started hitting the market end of 2018 and will continue to expand worldwide. Beyond just speed improvements, 5G is expected to unleash a massive IoT ecosystem where networks can serve communication needs for billions of connected devices, with the right trade-offs between speed, latency and cost. 5G technology is driven by some specification requirements: Up to 10Gbps data rate, 1-millisecond latency, up to 100x number of connected devices per unit area (compared with 4G LTE), 100% coverage, etc.)
