Advanced CMOS Converter Technology

The new video series describes the company's advanced CMOS converter technology, which is used throughout the 100G and 400G optical networks that power today’s Internet, and enable terabit networks. Among other leading products are the industry’s first 4-channel 56GSa/s based on a vertically integrated 65nm CMOS process, and a 4-channel 65Gbp/s . Using these converters and working closely with system partners Socionext has developed a fully integrated, single-wavelength, 100Gbps CMOS coherent transceiver.

Portfolio of Standard Products

Socionext has leveraged its expertise with advanced codec development to produce the first HEVC encoder chip, the M31, a compact design supporting 4K/ 60 frames per second. The M31’s 10-bit color profile produces high end video quality that lets broadcast systems deliver 4K/ 60p, which is more cost-effective than software-based systems. A single M31 encoder consuming under 10 watts can replace up to 48 Xeon-class processors, which consume 100 times more power.

The company also offers a comprehensive security camera solution with high-quality 4K images for camera input and network video recording (NVR). Users can monitor a wide area, and recognize or zoom in on people or objects to generate next-generation, high quality, and very clear 4K images. SNA’s technology processes images captured from a 360-degree, all-around-view camera using distortion correction, clipping, super-resolution zoom, panoramic view, and other features.

In addition are SNA’s complementary products such as the world’s smallest WiGig module, complete with an integrated antenna. This compact device enables a 1080p movie to be downloaded in as little as three minutes, compared with up to an hour over traditional , while consuming just 0.7mW.
