BEAVERTON, Ore. -- Accelerant Networks Inc., the leading developer of intelligent high-speed backplane communication transceivers, today announced the AN5500 backplane communications transceiver, the first chip to integrate 5 ports of up to 6.25 Gb/s full-duplex transceivers operating over 48" of FR4 and connectors. Proven and tested in production environments, including over 30 existing and new backplanes, the AN5500's unprecedented combination of per-channel adaptive equalization and multi-level signaling have set a new standard as the essential building blocks for 6.25 Gb/s backplane transceivers. The AN5500 is currently being sampled by a number of the leading networking and storage equipment companies and will be in full production in Q3, 2002. "With Accelerant's advanced backplane communication technology, we have created a critical solution for the development of high-performance communication equipment," said Paul Nahi, President and CEO of Accelerant Networks. "Delivering twice the bandwidth of 3.125 Gb/s XAUI SERDES, the AN5500 is well positioned to become a de facto standard for the development of next generation backplanes at the heart of tomorrow's networks."
