SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Vitesse Semiconductor Corporation (VTSS.PK), a leader in high-speed communication IC solutions, announced today the VSC3406, a 6.375 Gigabit per second (Gbps) multi-rate backplane transceiver. The VSC3406 builds upon Vitesse’s portfolio of proven, industry-recognized technology, incorporating the latest clock-data recovery (CDR) techniques and signal integrity toolset for backplane and interconnect design.

The VSC3406 is the first in a family of CDR products to feature Vitesse’s new VScope™ waveform viewing technology that embeds an oscilloscope function into the receiver of input CDR circuits. This comprehensive signal integrity solution gives engineers a single device that enables both a high-speed transceiver function and verification mechanism.

“Embedded oscilloscope functionality can potentially lower network testing and maintenance costs, an ongoing concern for anyone who manages a network,” said Aileen Arcilla, senior analyst - semiconductors: networking, broadband and storage for International Data Corporation (IDC). “Providing this means of remote diagnostic capability can offer telecom carriers and data center managers a more direct way to verify signal integrity within the data path itself and take corrective action in a timelier manner.”
