Skyrocketing network bandwidth demands – driven by consumer mobile devices and streaming services like Netflix, Hulu, YouTube and others – are pushing Internet Infrastructure suppliers to develop equipment supporting dramatically higher data rates and system port densities. Your equipment must be flexible to carry a wide range of voice, data and video traffic to connect users to their content.
The increasing popularity of cloud computing is further accelerating the demand for high capacity 10/40/100G networks. Collectively, these trends significantly increase the need for high performance timing ICs capable of meeting the stringent frequency synthesis flexibility and jitter performance required by 10/40/100G networking equipment.
Silicon Labs’ low-power High-Speed Current Steering Logic (HCSL) output buffer architecture has clear advantages over older technology constant current mode technology. Silicon Labs’ PCIe devices not only provide up to 66% power savings, but they also reduce required component count per output! It’s a win-win.
The benefits of low-power push-pull HCSL output drivers are threefold:
Standardizing on Silicon Labs’ PCIe Gen 3 Buffers and OPNs keeps your data center future proof for all announced Xeon platforms and architectures. Find out more about our PCIe Buffers and Internet Infrastructure applications at our website.
