Internet Machines to use Rambus' RaSer serial link technology

Keywords:Rambus? RaSer serializer/deserializer? TMC10 traffic manager?

Rambus Inc.'s RaSer serializer/deserializer (SerDes) cell has been incorporated into Internet Machines' SE200, a full duplex 200Gbps single-chip switch element and TMC10, a full duplex 10Gbps single-chip, wire-speed traffic management co-processor, under a license agreement between the two companies.

The SE200 switch element communicates with the TMC10 traffic manager using 16 on-chip 3.125Gbps serial links. This integration is expected to make backplanes easier to implement and consumes less power than if external transceivers were used. In addition, fewer components are required and no additional glue logic is necessary to complete a full duplex 10Gbps/OC-192c packet processing and switch fabric design.

"As the RaSer core meets standard electrical specifications, Internet Machines' components can work together as a set or individually with other industry-standard components to deliver 10Gbps systems that support a wide range of protocols and services." said Kevin Donnelly, VP of the Network Connections Division at Rambus Inc.
