Vitesse Semiconductor Corporation (NASDAQ: VTSS) and Avago Technologies (NASDAQ: AVGO) announced availability of the industry’s first CXP host joint reference design delivering 100G/120G connectivity for high-speed routers, Enterprise data centers and high-performance cloud computing applications. Based on Vitesse’s VSC7227 12-channel signal conditioner and Avago’s AFBR-83PDZ 100G CXP, this joint reference design enables customers to leverage Vitesse and Avago interoperability and expedite time-to-market with solutions for 100G/120G connectivity. It will be highlighted at SC12 at the Salt Palace Convention Center in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Sustained growth in cloud computing, mobile networking and video, remote storage and other bandwidth-intensive services drives demand for high density 100G/120G connectivity. Recent surveys show that network bandwidth demand is one of the most critical issues facing data centers, driven by increases in virtualization, cloud computing, big data, and convergence. To meet these needs, both carrier and equipment providers are upgrading existing systems with higher density 10G ports which are expected to grow 68% in 2012 alone, according to Infonetics. The reference design supports both these higher density 10G ports, along with the migration to true 100G links and beyond.
“The Vitesse reference design demonstrates the combined superior performance of the Avago CXP transceivers with the Vitesse signal conditioning ICs,” said Sharon Hall, product manager for parallel fiber optic products at Avago. “With this combined solution, system designers can design 100G/120G optically connected systems with confidence and improved signal integrity.”“This reference design gives our customers a proven way to solve higher bandwidth demands in optical networks,” said Gary Paules, product marketing manager at Vitesse. “Through ecosystem developments such as with Avago, Vitesse continues to extend its connectivity leadership, enabling our customers to rapidly bring to market advanced solutions for high density 100G Ethernet and Infiniband applications.” Reference Design Details The reference design is available immediately.
