Semiconductor Corporation (Nasdaq: VTSS), a leading provider of
advanced IC solutions for Carrier and Enterprise networks, announced a
portfolio of Gigabit Ethernet (GE) intellectual property
(IP) cores for simple and efficient integration of Gigabit
switch functionality into Ethernet IC solutions for consumer
electronics, gaming, printers, smart grid, industrial
and other applications.
Ethernet is the most broadly deployed networking technology in the
world. According to Cisco's Visual Networking Index, global Internet
traffic will quadruple from 2010 to 2015 with video comprising 62% of
all consumer Internet traffic in 2015. Further, mobile video is expected
to increase 16-fold between 2012 and 2017, accounting for over
two-thirds of the world's mobile data traffic by the end of 2017.
Vitesse's latest IP cores deliver essential features in consumer and
professional audio/video markets where Ethernet networking connectivity
is used to deliver digital information, such as audio or video data,
directly to end points in performance-sensitive applications. The cores
also support the IEEE 802.3az Energy Efficient Ethernet
standard for low-power networking designs.
"Ubiquitous Ethernet connectivity is becoming a reality, from
multi-player gaming and on-demand video in home entertainment consoles,
to smart grid and industrial applications," said Brian Jaroszewski,
senior product marketing manager a Vitesse. "Broadening Vitesse's IP
core portfolio strategically aligns with our goal to grow licensing
opportunities and expand our footprint into high-volume, adjacent
Easier Service and Traffic Management
The non-blocking Ethernet switch core IP is capable of content-aware
TCAM-based classification, enabling affordable, fine-grained traffic
differentiation for rich implementations of packet prioritization and
security in networking applications. Additionally, Quality-of-Service
(QoS) and latency-sensitive applications have access to granular
traffic management with IEEE 802.1Qbb priority flow
control, dual-leaky bucket policing and multi-stage traffic shaping
providing per port and per queue shaping on egress ports.
Product Availability and Information
Two versions of the core are now available:
