About Memoir Systems

Memoir specializes in scaling memory performance. Memory performance is a standard bottleneck in scaling system performance. Memoir is enabling technology to alleviate this bottleneck in an application-independent manner. Memoir's technology is agnostic to the type of memory used, and integrates seamlessly into a standard ASIC/COT design flow. It allows system architects and end-users to view memory performance as a programmable resource, allowing them to build higher speed systems - beyond the capability of existing memory technology. Memoir's techniques have been validated by early commercial adopters of the technology.

Cisco Announces Intent to Acquire Memoir Systems

Jan 29, 2015

Hilton Romanski | September 18, 2014 at 5:00 am PST ( 3 Comments ) Today, I am pleased to announce Cisco’s intent to acquire privately held Memoir Systems , a company that develops semiconductor memory intellectual property (IP) and tools that enable ASIC vendors to build programmable network switches with increasing speeds. This acquisition will enable the proliferation of affordable, fast memory for existing Cisco switch ASICs and will help advance Cisco’s ASIC innovations necessary to meet next-generation IT requirements. Currently in the data center switching market, denser infrastructure and data-intensive workloads are driving demand for higher port density (feeds) and greater bitrates (speeds). At the same time, the accelerating growth of scale-out (non-virtualized) Big Data applications like Hadoop are driving increasing East-West data traffic – furthering the need for greater data center network density. Unfortunately, the physical memory in typical ASIC switch chips cannot cope with the design requirements for these more intense needs and as a result, can become the bottleneck that limits the density and performance of future data center switches. To help solve the ASIC memory issue, Memoir currently licenses soft-logic IP, which speeds up memory access by up to 10 times. It also reduces the overall footprint this memory takes up in typical switch ASICs. As a result, this technology allows the development of switch and router ASICs with speeds, feeds, and costs typically not possible with traditional physical memory design techniques. This differentiation is critically important as port densities and port speeds move from 10G to 40/100G. The acquisition of Memoir Systems is expected to close in the first quarter of Cisco’s fiscal year 2015. The Memoir team will report into Cisco’s Insieme Business Unit, under Senior Vice President, Mario Mazzola. I look forward to seeing Memoir’s technology used across Cisco’s future ASIC projects. Memoir’s technology and strong team will allow Cisco to continue to innovate at the chip level and advance our ASIC and overall networking strategies.
