SAN JOSE, Calif. and SINGAPORE -- Avago Technologies (Nasdaq: AVGO), a leading supplier of analog interface components for wireless, wireline, and industrial applications, today announced its new Vortex Gearbox™ family of Physical Layer Transceiver (PHY) devices supporting Ethernet and Optical Transport Networking (OTN). These devices feature Avago’s proven 28nm CMOS SerDes technology that has demonstrated compliance with IEEE CAUI and various Common Electrical Interface (CEI) standards that include CEI-11G-SR, CEI-25G-LR, and CEI-28G-VSR. The Vortex Gearbox devices also incorporate Avago’s unique proprietary Decision Feedback Equalization (DFE) architecture providing low overall power consumption, low data latency and best-in-class jitter and crosstalk performance.

“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.”

"With over 250 million SerDes channels shipped over the past decade, Avago has established a record of developing leading-edge embedded SerDes cores for high performance ASICs," said Frank Ostojic, vice president and general manager of Avago’s ASIC Products Division. "Building on this foundation, we now offer the AVSP-1104, the first product in the Vortex Gearbox family. We are delivering 100GbE solutions now and will enable designers to create systems incorporating serial communication at rates greater than 28Gbps in the near future.”

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
