LAS VEGAS -- Vitesse Semiconductor Corp. (NASDAQ: VTSS) will showcase products from its Ethernet, Networking and Storage groups at Interop to highlight the company’s technology leadership and continued focus on performance, power and price to drive innovation at both the circuit and system levels. By bringing new capabilities and efficiencies to its integrated circuits, Vitesse significantly improves the value proposition for its OEM and ODM customers by simplifying the design process, improving reliability, increasing performance and lowering costs.

Headlining Vitesse’s Interop exhibit are the new E-StaX-34™ switch-on-a chip (SoC) product, the first 400mW integrated Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) PHY technology demonstration, the complete end-to-end NexSASä storage solution, and the latest in high speed signal integrity and 10GbE transceiver solutions. Vitesse can be seen at Interop in Las Vegas from Monday, May 2nd through Thursday, May 4th in booth #125 ER01 in the Mandalay Bay Convention Center.

"We are particularly excited about Interop this year because Vitesse has hit its stride across all product lines in delivering continued technology leadership in our Ethernet, Networking and Storage groups, allowing our customers to leverage performance, power, integration, reliability and price to drive advancement and value in their products," said Chris Gardner, acting CEO, Vitesse Semiconductor Corp.

In a separate release:

LAS VEGAS -- Vitesse Semiconductor Corp. (NASDAQ: VTSS), the market leader in Gigabit Ethernet ICs, today announced the company has successfully demonstrated the industry’s first 400mW integrated Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) PHY, lowering power consumption by up to 50 percent compared to previous solutions. Tested over full 100m cable lengths with continuous traffic, the prototype super low power GbE PHY reinforces Vitesse’s technology leadership in GbE integrated circuits and will become the foundation for future products in the SimpliPHY™ and SparX™ families. In February 2006 the company raised the bar on low power to 600mW for its SimpliPHY™ VSC8601 and VSC8641, and with this announcement Vitesse again sets the pace for the industry. Vitesse will be demonstrating the 400mW GbE PHY during the Interop event in Las Vegas from Monday, May 2nd through Thursday, May 4th in booth #125 ER01 in the Mandalay Bay Convention Center.

"Vitesse’s Ethernet Products Division is focused on accelerating the transition from 10/100 to Gigabit Ethernet while at the same time leveraging our technology expertise to bring strategic advantages to our customers through integration, performance and power," said Martyn Humphries, vice president and general manager of the Ethernet Products Division at Vitesse. "By providing a super low power PHY, we are removing the barriers and enabling GbE in a much broader range of applications where power dissipation considerations previously prevented the use of this high-speed connectivity technology."

Power savings in a highly integrated chip helps optimize PC board space and simplify board design to lower component count, improve reliability and performance, and reduce circuit and system risk. Delivering 600mW in its current SimpliPHY™ VSC8601 and VSC8641 and now achieving the 400mW benchmark, Vitesse brings its OEM and ODM customers the industry’s best performance, lowest power GbE chip on the market as well as the assurance that the company will continually improve upon its leading GbE technology. OEMs and ODMs can utilize the low power chips to build cost-effective solutions for a broader set of
