Fujitsu and Partners Teak Technologies, Gennum, CorEdge and Terranetics to Exhibit Leading 10-Gigabit Ethernet Applications at Interop Las Vegas 2007


Fujitsu Microelectronics America, Inc. (FMA) and four customer partners will showcase the Fujitsu 20-port, 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) switch chip, and their GbE solutions used in a variety of applications at Interop Las Vegas, May 20 - 25, 2007, in the Mandalay Bay Convention Center, Las Vegas.

The Fujitsu MB8AA3020, the industryís most powerful 20-port, 10GbE switch IC, was designed to meet the performance demands of high-density backplane switching for blade server, data center switching, AdvancedTCA (ATCA) and MicroTCA applications. The chip delivers 400+Gbps non-blocking, aggregate switching bandwidth, along with high quality of service (QoS), state-of-art VLAN virtualization, backward congestion management notification (BCN) and priority-based PAUSE. Wirespeed switching at full cross-sectional bandwidth is achieved through a proprietary multi-stream 3Mbyte shared-buffer memory. Users can select either on-chip 10Gbps serial PHYs to minimize connectivity for XFP modules, or on-chip PHYs for a CX-4 interface, with Hardware Adaptive equalization.

In booth #1931, Fujitsu will exhibit its innovative 20-port 10GbE switch chip, which was introduced in August 2006 ( A range of leading backplane interconnect IC makers have selected the chip to serve emerging data-communications and telecom applications requiring 10GbE transport.

Customer Demonstrations in Fujitsu Booth 1931
Gennum Corporation (TSX: GND), a leading designer and manufacturer of semiconductor solutions for the global video, data communications and audio markets, will demonstrate SFP+ capability using the Fujitsu 20-port, 10GbE switch. The innovative 10Gbps serial interconnect, based on the Fujitsu MB8AA3020, connects directly to an SFP+ optical module without any additional circuitry in between. Gennumís CDR solution, comprised of the companyís 10Gigabit Ethernet CDR ICs GN2023 and GN2024, is optimized to work with high integration ICs such as Fujitsuís, and supports modules, such as the 10GBASE-SR compliant SFP+ optical transceiver being demonstrated, that enable higher density linecard designs.

Teak Technologies, the pioneer in Congestion-Free Ethernet switching solutions, will showcase its 10-Gb CFE Switch Module, the I3000, for the IBM BladeCenter platform. The Fujitsu 10Gbps switch chip enables the Teak switch to facilitate a congestion-free Ethernet environment inside a blade server chassis through active collaboration with suitably equipped server blades. The I3000 is the first in a series of a new category of scalable Congestion-Free Ethernet switching solutions for the New Data Center. These solutions are optimized for high performance in the data center access layer and solve the core problem of network congestion spread associated with state-of-art Ethernet switches used in short-haul networks.

CorEdge Networks, a leading provider of key building blocks for MicroTCA/ATCA platforms, will feature its 10GbE fabric daughter card, the CEN-FAB10GE, as part of its MicroTCA Carrier Hub (MCH) module family. The CEN-FAB10GE permits full 10Gbps processing speed in a MicroTCA form factor, when added to the CEN-MCH base card supporting 1GbE base channel switching. The CEN-FAB10GE is based on the Fujitsu 20-port, 10GbE switch chip.

At booth # ER17, Teranetics, a leader in advanced mixed signal technology, will demonstrate its TN1010 10GBASE-T PHY, which uses the Fujitsu 10GbE switch chip embedded in the Fujitsu XG1200 switch box. The Teranetics 10GBASE-T PHY allows low-cost interconnects for 10GbE over category 6 twisted pair copper wire. The TN1010 10GBASE-T PHY has full XAUI Interface support for 10GBASE-T applications in next-generation NICs and switches for servers, enterprise networks and storage appliances.
