Diodes Incorporated announced the introduction of the PCIe 3.0 packet switch IC. DIODES PI7C9X3G1632GP provides a flexible configuration with many ports and bandwidth, resulting in increased levels of performance and availability. This will be useful in AI / advanced training systems, storage equipment, data center servers, wireless / wired telecommunications infrastructure and various forms of modern embedded hardware.
The main architecture of the PI7C9X3G1632GP consists of 2 boards, each with 8 ports and 16 tapes, which allows it to support 32 SERDES tapes in configuration options that range from 2 ports to 16 ports. Different types of ports can be assigned to handle a wide range of potential applications, such as branch ports and connect to multiple hosts. These include upstream, downstream, and endpoint between domains (CDEP) ports.
Multiple DMA channels are built into the PI7C9X3G1632GP to allow for more efficient data communication between host / hosts and connected endpoints. The low latency of packet forwarding (<150ns typically) means that high-performance data transmissions can be achieved. Integrating a PCIe 3.0 clock buffer helps reduce overall billing costs and simplifies the deployment process.
The inclusion of additional features, such as advanced error reporting, error handling and end-to-end data protection, are essential to ensure ongoing transmission reliability. In addition, operating conditions are monitored using the built-in thermal sensor.
Advanced power management features allow significant energy savings, allowing the PI7C9X3G1632GP to operate in the industrial temperature range of -40 ° C to 85 ° C and allowing it to be used in a wide range of applications.
IN PI7C9X3G1632GP The packet switch comes in a 676-pin FCBGA package measuring 27mm x 27mm. Available at $ 89 in quantities of 1,000.
