IDT’s New Eight-Port 20-Gbps-per-Port Gen2 RapidIO Switch Selected by Curtiss Wright Controls for Latest DSP Platform
SAN JOSE, Calif., March 29, 2011 – Integrated Device Technology, Inc. (IDT®; NASDAQ: IDTI), the Analog and Digital Company™ delivering essential mixed-signal semiconductor solutions, today announced it has added the sixth member to its industry-leading portfolio of RapidIO® Gen2 switches. The intermediately-sized CPS-1432 comes in response to the strong demand for RapidIO Gen2 switches fueled by the prolific expansion of 4G wireless infrastructure and the growing industry adoption of RapidIO for defense, aerospace, server, medical imaging, and video applications.
The architecture of the new IDT CPS 1432 provides customers in these high-growth market segments an upgrade path for IDT’s industry benchmark Gen1 RapidIO solutions that is smaller in form factor and consumes 40% less power per 10 Gigabit of data. This enables customers to meet the competing demands of higher performance, smaller size, and lower power in energy-conscious applications. The device supports eight x4 ports at up to 6.25 Gbaud per lane, providing twice the performance per port when compared to IDT’s high performance Serial RapidIO (S-RIO) 1.3 switches. The CPS 1432 also offers more than twice the bandwidth per port compared to 10 Gigabit Ethernet switches and has an industry-leading latency of 100ns. As a result, it was recently selected by Curtiss-Wright Controls for use in their latest DSP platform for the rugged deployed embedded military market.
"We chose the IDT CPS 1432 for our CHAMP-AV8 6U VPX DSP board to aggregate traffic between dual quad core Intel® Core® i7 processors onto a RapidIO backplane,”" said Lynne Bamford, vice president and general manager for Curtiss-Wright Controls Embedded Computing. "The selection of RapidIO over Ethernet was clear. The size, power, and latency advantages of the IDT CPS 1432 RapidIO switch combined with IDT’s PCI Express® Gen2 to S-RIO Gen2 bridging technology enables us to deliver the market’s highest performance open standard 6U VPX form factor signal processing solution."
"RapidIO is an ideal interconnect solution for multi-processing applications, and IDT’s offerings continue to enable and lead this market," said Fred Zust, vice president of the Communications Division at IDT. "The CPS 1432 provides the package size and lane count that our customers have been asking for, and demonstrates our continued investment in this technology. Going forward, we expect RapidIO to continue to gain market share over Ethernet in many embedded markets."
