Avago Technologies delivers 28G VSR-compliant ASIC SerDes geared for faster, lower-power networking equipment
November 30, 2011
BOEBLINGEN, Germany -- Avago Technologies (Nasdaq: AVGO), a leading supplier of analog interface components for communications, industrial and consumer applications, today announced that its 28-Gbps Serializer/Deserializer (SerDes) core has demonstrated compliance with the Common Electrical Interface (CEI) standard for 28G Very Short Reach (VSR). Achieving CEI-28G-VSR compliance brings the high-bandwidth, low-power SerDes to a broader range of data networking applications.
The company also announced it has shipped over 200 million embedded SerDes channels integrated in Application-Specific Integrated Circuits (ASICs) used for data communication in networking, computing and storage applications. The CEI-28G-VSR compliance and the shipping milestone reflect the growing demand for increased bandwidth for servers, routers and other data center equipment.
“Data center equipment designers are focused on increasing bandwidth to meet the demands of cloud computing and virtualization, but power consumption is always a key as well,” said Frank Ostojic, vice president and general manager of the ASIC Products Division at Avago. “With 28G VSR compliance, our SerDes cores can better help our customers address these challenges for their next-generation networking equipment, which in turn will help Avago to continue setting newSerDes capability milestones.”
