The Vortex Gearbox AVSP-1104 is a single-chip PHY IC designed for high-density 100G Ethernet and OTN applications. The device is ideal for driving both backplane and portside applications. Key features include:
Long reach performance withstanding up to 32dB of channel loss
Hole-free operation from 1-28 Gbps
Gearbox functionality for full-duplex conversion of four lanes (4x25 Gbps, 4x28 Gbps) to ten lanes (10x10 Gbps, 10x11 Gbps)
Option for configuration as a retimer function for full-duplex transmission of ten lanes
Programmable Tx/Rx equalization of all SerDes interfaces
Bit Error Rate (BER) of 1e-20
Easy-to-use diagnostic software for remote debugging
"The wired communications semiconductor market has become increasingly concentrated. On the basis of its proven SerDes technology and broad portfolio of ASICs, ASSPs, IP and optics, Avago enters the PHY ASSP market with instant credibility," said Jag Bolaria, senior analyst at The Linley Group. "The features included in this first member of Avago's new Vortex Gearbox family of customer channel products meet or exceed the requirements in both backplane and portside applications."
