Socionext has a strong tradition in developing customer-specific solutions (ASICs) and digital SoCs for networking, enterprise and consumer applications. Within the networking environment, we focus on the development of market-leading, high-performance ADCs, DACs and SerDes IP. With our expertise in leading edge silicon technology and design methodology we can address the most demanding of environments such as server clusters, data centers and emerging Industry 4.0 applications.

While 100G optical networks are rapidly expanding, it is essential to carry out research and development to ensure the production of next-generation 400G and 1T (Terabit) optical networks. With over 30 years’ experience in developing custom SoCs, combined with specialist high-speed analog, mixed-signal and digital design, Socionext continues to design systems for current and future networks, including advanced IP for scaling from 100G to 1T data rates.
