Fujitsu Showcases Single-chip 10Gbps 12-port Ethernet Switch IC

10/20/2003 - Fujitsu Microelectronics America Inc. (FMA) will demonstrate its innovative single-chip 10Gbps Ethernet switch at booth 624 during the annual Network Processors West Conference at Parkside Hall in San Jose October 21-23.

The switch chip, developed for applications such as cluster computing and storage networking, is a 10Gbps layer-2 Ethernet switch using shared memory, with wire-speed switching capability at all 12 ports. The device provides 240 Gbps aggregate bandwidth, through integrated XAUI SERDES interface, 802.3e-compliant Ethernet Media Access Controller and Fujitsu’s proprietary credit-based buffer management unit.

“Fujitsu is at the forefront of the next generation of network services provisioning with these innovative new 10Gbps technologies,” said Keith Horn, FMA’s vice president of marketing. “They are vital parts of our full service solution for the networking industry leaders worldwide.”

The development of this switch was partially funded by the New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO), one of the Japanese Governmental Agencies.

FMA also has introduced the industry’s first 10Gbps serial transceiver macro, the HS9GX, for ASIC-based networking and communications applications. The macro, which interfaces to the industry-standard XFI optical module interface, provides very high-performance serialization and de-serialization, with a low power dissipation of only 311mW per channel. It enables network and communication systems designers to interface OC-192 framer functions through the XFI interface to the industry-standard XFP modules. HS9GX fact sheet is now available from Fujitsu Microelectronics.
