OTTAWA, 4 Dec. 2006. Tundra Semiconductor Corp. in Ottawa is offering the Tsi578 serial RapidIO switch, which company officials say sets industry benchmarks for high-performance and low power consumption through an innovative feature set.

It supports RapidIO version 1.3 and is suited for AdvancedTCA and MicroTCA backplane or local DSP connectivity.

These platforms will benefit from the switch's ability to route packets to more than 64,000 endpoints, independent unicast and multicast routing mechanisms, and error-management extensions.

Scalable for a broad spectrum of military, wireless, networking, and video infrastructure applications, designers can use configuration options to optimize link speed and power consumption for the application.

Features include 80-gigabit-per-second aggregate bandwidth; as many as eight 4x mode ports or 16 1x mode ports; port frequency configuration to 1.25, 2.5, and 3.125 gigabaud with 8 b/10 b encoding; integrated high-speed, full-duplex SERDES with 120 to 200 milliwatts per port power; high-performance hardware multicast; and advanced traffic management features.
