Reference Design Has Backplane For High-Speed Networking

A reference design for CrossStream chipsets has been jointly developed by AMP and Vitesse Semiconductor to offer a high-performance 2.125-GB/s serial backplane solution for high-speed networking. For companies wishing to implement a design using the CrossStream chips, AMP offers this design reference guide that provides detailed guidelines for implementing a system-level solution. The reference guide will reportedly lower the learning curve on developing gigabit-speed systems and speed time to market. The CrossStream chipset incorporates a high-performance data switching architecture targeted at enterprise applications, including SONET/SDH OC-48 IP routers, Gigabit Ethernet and ATM switches, as well as supporting storage area network and network access applications.
