Fujitsu, Gennum Devise New 10 GbE Architecture

Arthur Cole

Fujitsu and Gennum Corp. say they have devised a new low-cost, high-performance 10 GbE architecture by integrating their respective switch and chip modules and tying them directly to optical networking components.

 

The companies have brought together Fujitsu's 26-port 10 GbE IC, the MB86C69RBC, with Gennum's 10G CDR system in an SFP+ design that cuts nearly $40 off the cost of each port and reduces power to about 1 watt per port.

 

The design calls for 10G serial I/Os to be connected directly to 10 GbE optical modules using integrated signal conditioning devices. This allows for the removal of many of the smaller components needed to maintain the signal path, resulting in both cost and power savings.

 

The companies hope the new design will foster low-cost interconnectivity options for 10 GbE Network Interface Cards (NICs).
