The Ethernet Alliance today announced its participation and associate sponsorship at DesignCon 2008, where member companies will demonstrate Backplane Ethernet Feb. 5-6 at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, Calif.

Additionally, Ethernet Alliance members and executives will participate in panel sessions on 100GbE, 10+Gb signaling and next-generation electrical signaling.

Ethernet Alliance member companies AMCC, Molex, Tyco Electronics and Vitesse will demonstrate 10GbE Backplane Ethernet featuring Reference Backplanes, and error-free 10 Gbps data traffic driven by 10GBASE-KR PHY devices.

The demonstrations will showcase live traffic using streaming video and signal quality shown through a bit error rate.
