DALLAS, Sept. 17 -- Vitesse Semiconductor Corp. has partnered with AraLight Inc. to develop a modular switching evaluation platform for high-speed backplane applications. The reference platform enables designers to address the demands for increased bandwidth for high-performance enterprise, metro and core infrastructure networks. OEMs can use the switching systems for optical, SAN and video applications. The reference design platform uses the VSC3139, a 72x72 crosspoint switch from Vitesse, and the AraLight ARL-36 Series (36 TX and 36 RX channels) transceiver.
"Vitesse and AraLight have built a reference design that enables OEMs to easily incorporate optical links into a switching system without compromising signal integrity," said Gary McCormick, product line director from Vitesse. "We are excited to have the opportunity to demonstrate this reference platform at the NFOEC tradeshow in Dallas."
