Zarlink Intros Card
Increasing demand for bandwidth-intensive, multimedia-rich web applications requires higher-speed system interconnects within networking and communications equipment. RapidIO® technology eliminates potential traffic “bottlenecks” by defining an open-standard, scaleable architecture for chip-to-chip and circuit board-to-circuit board interconnects within wireless infrastructure, edge networking, storage, military and scientific equipment.
“As equipment manufacturers are pressured to meet higher-speed interconnect demands, the ZLE60400 optical extender card meets ATCA high-speed backplane and chassis requirements and allows Serial RapidIO to be brought ‘out of the box’,” said Dr. Marco Ghisoni, product manager, Optical Products, Zarlink Semiconductor. “Integrating Zarlink’s parallel fiber optic module technology, ZLE60400 card provides scalable, high throughput interconnections of beyond 100 meters within equipment racks, shelves and boards”.
