MUNICH -– Infineon Technologies AG (FSE/NYSE: IFX) and Vitesse Semiconductor Corp. (NASDAQ: VTSS) today announced a collaboration to establish interoperability of currently available and future-generation SONET/SDH framer integrated circuits (ICs) and Time Slot Interchange ICs (TSIs). By working together, Infineon and Vitesse provide system designers a complete end-to-end solution of critical silicon content for SONET/SDH systems that is unsurpassed in the industry. Interoperability between the Infineon framers and the Vitesse TSIs includes products from each company’s SONET/SDH roadmap for 160 Gbps (gigabit-per-second), 320 Gbps and 640 Gbps SONET/SDH systems, as well as system-level reference designs that are useful for rapid development and deployment of next-generation systems. The first result from this collaboration is the proven interoperability between the Infineon Tethys SONET/SDH Multi-Rate Framer IC and the Vitesse VSC9185 TSI. Achieving interoperability with the VSC9185 is important from an industry perspective because it is part of the Vitesse TSI product family that, according to industry analysts, has captured 30 percent of its market, making it one of the most widely used TSI product lines in the industry.
