four new PCIe Gen2 switching solutions – a 24-lane, 6-port (89PES24T6G2); a 24-lane, 3-port (89PES24T3G2); a 6-lane, 6-port (89PES6T6G2); and a 4-lane, 4-port (89PES4T4G2) extend the company’s existing portfolio of PCIe Gen2 solutions, the broadest in the industry. Each of the new devices is available in a 19mm flip chip BGA package with 1mm ball spacing.
The IDT Gen2 PCIe switches are fully compliant with the PCI-SIG PCIe base specification 2.0 and provide customers the option of doubling the throughput bandwidth of existing PCIe lanes to 5 gigabits per second of data transfer for cutting edge designs or allowing a 50 percent reduction in the number of PCIe lanes and board traces necessary to support link throughput requirements for a more cost effective design.
The newest IDT PCIe switches deliver the industry’s best performance-per-watt, demonstrating the IDT corporate initiative to provide devices that are “power smart” by incorporating advanced features to minimize power consumption, maximize performance-per-watt and reduce total cost of ownership and thermal design complexity. These new additions to the industry’s broadest portfolio of PCIe Gen2 solutions decrease time-to-market and reduce system validation testing by utilizing the proven IDT switch and interface technology.
Each of the IDT PCIe switching solutions has a dedicated evaluation and development kit for device testing and analysis, and system emulation. IDT also provides customers with extensive, collaborative technical support including system modelling and signal integrity analyses, and schematic and layout review services.
