The IDT Tsi578 is a third-generation Serial RapidIO Switch. Supporting 80 Gbps aggregate bandwidth, the Tsi578 enables customers to develop high performance systems at low cost. The device is targeted at the following: Chip-to-chip DSP and processor aggregation Board-to-board backplane interconnect Chassis-to-chassis interconnect over copper or optics
The Tsi578 can be configured as a 16-port x1 switch or an 8-port x4 switch (or various combinations of x1 and x4). Each of the ports can operate at 1.25 Gbaud, 2.5 Gbaud, or 3.125 Gbaud.
- 80 Gbps of non blocking full duplex bandwidth
- Traffic management through scheduling algorithms, programmable buffer depth
- Fabric performance monitoring to supervise and manage traffic flow
