IDT Ramps up PCIe 2

Arthur Cole

IDT says it is pushing the new PCIe Gen-2 standard beyond the capabilities spelled out on paper in a bid to develop the system as the de facto system interconnect for both enterprise computing and communications environments.

 

The company's newest switching solution is the first to support both multicast -- the ability to send identical data to two or more switch ports -- and multi-root partitioning, essentially creating a fully partionable switching architecture that allows for features like dynamic assignment of PCIe slot and I/O peripherals. These tools allow for advanced failover capabilities and on-the-fly resource-sharing and load-balancing among multi-root complexes.

 

The new technology will be available on five new system interconnect solutions aimed at data and services plane traffic and control plane traffic. The devices range from a 64-lane, 16-port design to a 22-lane, 16-port design. All the units are available with a dedicated evaluation and development kit for testing, analysis and system emulation in both upstream and downstream environments.
