Featuring a per-port speed of up to 6.5Gbps and low-latency switching capabilities, the VSC3172 and VSC3144 crosspoint switches from Vitesse Semiconductor Corp. bring near-terabit aggregate bandwidth capacity.

The VSC3172 72X72 and VSC3144 144X144 asynchronous crosspoint switches deliver 900Gbps capacity for blade server, video and network equipment designs used in core, metro and enterprise environments.

The VSC3172 72X72 and VSC3144 144X144 asynchronous crosspoint switches employ the company's PixEQ technology, which helps improve signal performance and reduce jitter associated with driving multigigabit signals across PCBs, backplanes and cables.

The VSC3172 72X72 and VSC3144 144X144 asynchronous crosspoint switches feature 11Gbps-per-port and two through 144-sized matrix selection. Their nanosecond latency and 125MHz programming rate make them suitable for system designs with tight timing budgets.

They offer operating rates that are more than 50 percent higher than previous-generation devices at a lower cost, according to the company.

Volume pricing for the VSC3172 and VSC3144 is $250 and $750, respectively. Sampling is planned for September.
