Industry Leading Multi-Gigabit SerDes IP Enables Juniper's Terabit MX-3D Products
SAN JOSE, Calif., and SINGAPORE, November 03, 2009Avago Technologies (Nasdaq: AVGO), a leading supplier of analog interface components for communications, industrial, and consumer applications, today announced that it provided critical IP to Juniper Networks to enable the development of the company’s high-performance silicon devices. These new Juniper designs are part of the Junos Trio chipset that enables the delivery of Juniper’s MX-3D platforms.
Each device features close to 100 SerDes channels and is capable of driving a lossy backplane channel and multiple backplane connectors. In addition to exhibiting ‘best-in-class’ crosstalk and jitter performance, Avago’s unique decision feedback equalization (DFE) and modular architectures enable high-density, low-power solutions, which are critical in today’s demanding applications.
“Avago’s multi-gigabit SerDes cores meet our stringent performance requirements,” said R.K. Anand, executive vice president of Foundation Technologies at Juniper Networks. “Cutting edge IP from Avago for SerDes and high-speed I/O are essential technologies that enable us to deliver compelling and innovative solutions in silicon for our customers.”
“We are committed to providing solutions that meet our customers’ growing requirements for speed, density, power, and execution,” said Frank Ostojic, vice president and general manager of Avago’s ASIC Products Division. “We are delighted that Juniper has chosen Avago to engage so closely on such breakthrough projects that enable us to showcase our embedded SerDes leadership within the industry and meet Juniper’s needs of unprecedented performance and scale for their new product.”
Over two years ago, Avago introduced working 65nm SerDes silicon and was the first to demonstrate 20 Gbps performance in 40nm. With over three decades of experience, Avago has established a consistent record of first-pass success in the design and manufacture of complex silicon solutions. With use of state-of-the-art hierarchical design methodology and an extensive IP portfolio, Avago has maintained a solid reputation for delivering high performance silicon that meet the needs of designers developing next generation networking, storage, and computing applications.
