Announced as the first PCIe switches meeting the high-performance data- and control-plane interconnect requirements for grueling communications applications, the 89HPES family consists of three 16-port devices and offers lane-count options of 16, 22, and 34. The 16-lane, 16-port 89HPES16T16 manages control-plane traffic between management processors, ASICs, FPGAs, and I/O peripherals. The 22-lane, 16-port 89HPES22T16 and 34-lane, 16-port 89HPES34T16 offer x8, x4 and x1 port configurations to support a mix of data- and control-plane traffic. Of note, the large port widths enable efficient, cascading connectivity for switching complexes with more than 16 ports and provide for redundancy and failover mechanisms. Each member of the family is available in a 23-mm, flip-chip BGA package with 1-mm ball spacing and complies with PCIe Base Specification 1.1. Currently sampling, expect production at the end of the current quarter. INTEGRATED DEVICE TECHNOLOGY INC., Santa Clara, CA. (800) 345-7015.
