The IDT Interconnect Delivers Ultra-Low Latency and Scalability for the Galaxias SDC1000 Heterogeneous Server

June 27, 2016

SAN JOSE, Calif., June 27, 2016 – Integrated Device Technology, Inc. (IDT) (NASDAQ: IDTI) announced today that Sugon, a leader in China’s high-performance computing sector, selected IDT® RapidIO® semiconductors for its new Galaxias SDC1000 server. With ultra-low latency and high level of scalability, the IDT devices help speed the movement and processing of data in the Sugon system, which brings together processors, networks, storage and I/O devices in a unified 4U energy-efficient system.

The Galaxias SDC1000 features an IDT RapidIO switch and network interface IC, used to connect up to 32 processing nodes and four FPGA accelerators per chassis. The RapidIO-enabled network can be used to connect heterogeneous processing nodes of x86 or ARM processors in Sugon’s Galaxias SDC1000. The RapidIO devices also scale from chassis to chassis.

The low-latency interconnect enables efficient communication and high performance for pools of CPUs, memory, storage, and accelerators such as those in Sugon’s cloud server. RapidIO-based server and supercomputing solutions are already developed for both C-RAN and high-performance computing markets, with the Galaxias SDC1000 being yet another example. RapidIO is also used extensively throughout communications infrastructure, with IDT RapidIO chips used in virtually every 4G LTE call made globally. 

 “The low latency and guaranteed throughput of RapidIO make it ideal for use as a unified fabric in these performance-critical computing applications,” said Xiaojun Yang, chief engineer, Sugon Information. “We have been using IDT RapidIO products for their low latency, scalability and overall energy efficiency, which are best-in-class when connecting a large number of processors in a high-density server system.”

“RapidIO is key to the multi-processor peer-to-peer processing needs that are emerging in both real-time processing and data center applications,” said Sean Fan, vice president and general manager of IDT’s Computing and Communication Division. “Sugon’s new server system is one of many examples of IDT’s success in enabling high-performance computing.”

IDT has shipped more than 110 million ports of RapidIO for use in production systems. The company recently introduced its next-generation RXS RapidIO switch family of even faster speeds of 50 Gbps per port, supporting 600 Gbps of switching in a single switch or 4.8 Tbps at rack scale.
