Fujitsu to Demo 10Gbps Ethernet Prototype
Posted on 12-Apr-2006 14:59 by H Willan. | Tags Filed under: News.

Fujitsu Microelectronics America, Inc. will make a presentation on the PICMG-defined, ATCA standard design practice, and feature its 10-Gigabit Ethernet prototype board at the Server Blade Summit 2006 in Garden City, California.

The Fujitsu MB87Q3140 single-chip 10Gbps Ethernet switch will be demonstrated on Celestica's ATCA 10 Gigabit Ethernet hub Advanced Mezzanine Cards (AMC) carrier blade. The switch, which is now available as a prototype board, features:
  • Compliance with PICMG3.0 and 3.1 (10Gbps Ethernet)
  • Compliance with AMC.0 and AMC.2 Type E2 (Gigabit Ethernet) and Type 5 (10Gbps Ethernet)
  • Support for up to two full-height AMC modules
  • RTM interface
  • Optional IPMI software and CGLinux Board Support Package (BSP).

    The promise of PICMG3.x is that, by standardizing hardware components such as the backplane interconnect, the current supply chain model and product time-to-market can be improved and hardware R&D costs reduced. To date, PICMG3.x has defined backplane interconnect protocols that include Ethernet, InfiniBand, ASI, PCI Express and RapidIO.

    Fujitsu recently published a technical backgrounder outlining the use of its 10-Gigabit Ethernet switching technology for applications based on the Advanced Mezzanine Cards (AMC) and the underlying ATCA, including wireless backhaul, wireless base stations, IPTV, and routers.
