IDT Extends PCI Express Gen2 Leadership With Four New Switch Solutions
IDT continues to extend its Gen2 PCI Express (PCIe) switch position with the introduction of four new PCIe switching solutions optimized to address the I/O connectivity challenges faced in the volume and value server markets. The new IDT PCI Express Gen2 devices provide industry-leading performance-per-watt and lowest total power consumption critical for server markets. The devices enable the cost-effective development of new systems by simplifying board layout, reducing system design and manufacturing cost, thus speeding time to market.
The 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.
