San Jose, Calif.—Designed for use in the wireless infrastructure, defense, medical and industrial imaging, and professional video markets, Integrated Device Technology Inc. has announced a new family of Serial RapidIO Generation 2 (Gen2) switches.
The IDT Gen2 switches double the data rate up to 20-Gbps, while reducing power by 40 percent and improving latency to 100 nanoseconds in cut-through mode, according to IDT.
The initial products include the CPS-1848 48-lane switch, with 240 Gbps of non-blocking bandwidth for use in large processor clusters or backplanes, and the CPS-1616 16-lane switch, with 80 Gbps of non-blocking bandwidth optimized for line cards and smaller processor clusters. The CPS-1848 and CPS-1616 were designed to interoperate with the IDT Serial RapidIO Gen2 IP being used in DSPs, microprocessor and ASICs.
The IDT Serial RapidIO Gen2 switches are supported by the IDT Serial RapidIO System Modeling tool for optimizing network architecture, as well as Serial RapidIO Linux open source support and the RapidFET JTAG Edition Software for switch configuration.
Pricing and Availability
The IDT CPS-1848 switch is available in a 29x29mm FCBGA package and is priced at $99 in volume. At $4 per 10 Gbps of data rate, the price per Gigabit is on par with other embedded interconnects. The IDT CPS-1616 is available in a 21x21mm FCBGA package and is priced at $49 in volume.
