CPS-1848, CPS-1616 switches

Integrated Device Technology Inc. (IDT) is offering a new family of Serial RapidIO Generation 2 (Gen2) switches designed for use in the wireless infrastructure, defense, medical and industrial imaging, and professional video markets.

The Gen2 switches double the data rate up to 20Gbit/s, while reducing power by 40 percent and improving latency to 100ns in cut-through mode.

The initial products include the CPS-1848 48-lane switch, with 240Gbit/s of non-blocking bandwidth for use in large processor clusters or backplanes, and the CPS-1616 16-lane switch, with 80Gbit/s 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.

The IDT CPS-1848 switch is available in a 29mm x 29mm FCBGA package and is priced at $99 in volume. At $4 per 10Gbit/s of data rate, the price per Gbit is on par with other embedded interconnects. The IDT CPS-1616 is available in a 21mm x 21mm FCBGA package and is priced at $49 in volume.
