SAN DIEGO -- Applied Micro Circuits Corp. (AMCC) (NASDAQ:AMCC - news), a leader in high-bandwidth silicon connectivity solutions for the world's optical networks, today announced the S2090, the industry's first very high-speed Silicon Germanium (SiGe) 68 x 69 differential crosspoint switch with full broadcast switching capability. Ideal for use in high-speed applications such as Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) switching, digital video, high-speed automatic test equipment (ATE), and datacom or telecom switches, the S2090 can handle NRZ data rates up to 3.2 Gbps per channel with corresponding output rise/fall times of 85 picoseconds. Furthermore, the S2090 also demonstrates an unprecedented 1.8 picoseconds typical Root Mean Square (RMS) jitter accumulation and sports power optimization features, which can achieve typical power dissipation as low as 7 Watts.

"The very low power and superior performance of the S2090 provide the optimum solution for highly dense multi-layer switch cards," said Paul Duran, AMCC's product marketing manager. "As the latest addition to AMCC's family of crosspoint switches, the S2090 exemplifies our experience in high speed, solution enabling IC technology. The S2090 works with the S7022 and S7025 parallel fiber chipset, further reinforcing our commitment to providing complete IC solutions for optical backplanes."
