Low-power Serial RapidIO switches target embedded apps


San Jose, Calif.—IDT announced a family of devices—central packet switches (CPS) that address the interconnect needs of embedded applications that use DSPs, FPGAs or processors.

The CPS products incorporate in-house third-generation IDT SerDes and serial RapidIO core switch technology to provide customers with flexibility, scalability, performance, and power consumption at a competitive cost, IDT said.

Leveraging the Serial RapidIO, JTAG and I²C interconnect standards, the IDT CPS family specifically addresses such markets as wireless and wireline, imaging, medical, military, IPTV, and other high-end communications markets and embedded applications.

The CPS family offers 4x and 1x port options coupled with enhanced features for system bring-up and debug. The CPS family of solutions includes three device configurations — with 16-port, 12-port, and 8-port options for 1x port counts.

The CPS family is pin-to-pin compatible with the IDT PPS Gen 2 family of devices, allowing customers the flexibility to upgrade their next-generation systems with no impact on hardware or board design.

The CPS devices are available in a RoHS 324-ball BGA 19 mm x 19 mm.

Pricing: $50 in 10,000 unit quantities for the CPS-16 (80KSW0002), $47.50 for the CPS-12 (80KSW0004) and $45 for the CPS-8 (80KSW0003).
Availability: Sampling.
