Vitesse Intros Quad Transceiver

CAMARILLO, Calif. -- Vitesse Semiconductor Corporation (NASDAQ:VT SS) today introduced the newest member in its family of high performance CMOS serial communication integrated circuits (ICs). The VSC7216-02 is a quad multi-gigabit interconnect IC that offers extremely low power consumptio n. Consuming only 700mW, it reduces power supply requirements by two watts over today's standard transceivers while simultaneously relieving thermal management challenges. The VSC7216-02 is ideal for system designers of routers, switches and general backplanes where up to 1.36Gb/s data transfer is required. The VSC7216-02 is well suited for Fibre Channel and Gigabit Ethernet applications.

"This product demonstrates Vitesse's commitment to smaller size, lower power devices with increased flexibility. For example, two Quad 21mm packages become more effective than a single octal device, once power, signal integrity and routing are taken into account," stated Bud Noren, Vitesse product marketing manager. "We are committed to bringing customers substantial performance and feature improvements by taking advantage of the latest technology advancements."
