Mindspeed Expands Crosspoint Product Line With A Family Of High Density Devices With Data Rates Up To 12.5Gbps

Mindspeed Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: MSPD), a leading supplier of semiconductor solutions for network infrastructure applications, today announced the expansion of its industry-leading crosspoint portfolio with 160x160, 48x48, 36x36 and 24x24 devices that further extend the world's broadest line of crosspoint switches.

Today’s ultra-time-sensitive applications demand very low latency that wide area networks and data centers need to address. An example is financial trading, where low latency is required for running an efficient, competitive market, and is viewed as a competitive advantage that delivers increased profits for firms which can execute transactions faster than their competitors. In such applications, latency is a frequently used metric that determines the necessary network and system architecture driving the use of crosspoints where port-based switching is required.

Mindspeed®’s crosspoints utilize high-performance analog process technology, enabling at-speed port switching, eliminating the need for SerDes devices and memory required for store-and-forward packet switching scheme, thus reducing latency, power consumption and cost. In addition, they feature Mindspeed's advanced signal-integrity management technology that delivers signal transmission speeds up to 12.5 Gbps. This signal conditioning technology enables storage, server and networking systems to support the industry's migration to higher data rates over backplanes and cabling media.

The new devices further extend the industry's broadest offering of crosspoint switch switches spanning 2x2 to 288x288 matrix sizes. For communications applications, the switches support 10 Gigabit Ethernet, optical transport channel unit 2 (OTU2), 8G and 10G Fibre Channel, 12.5 Gbps for two times RXAUI and proprietary data rates.

"Mindspeed continues to demonstrate its leadership in high-growth markets where low-latency switching and signal integrity is an increasingly difficult challenge," said Gary Shah, vice president of product marketing, high-performance analog (HPA) business unit, at Mindspeed. "Our crosspoint switching products are a cost effective alternative to packet switches in wide area networks and data center applications."
