Fujitsu Microelectronics America, Inc. (FMA) will demonstrate its latest 10 Gigabit Ethernet evaluation board, built around the company’s newest 10 Gigabit Ethernet single switch chip next week at the annual Network Systems Design Conference (NSDC) in San Jose, Calif.

The MB87Q3140 is a single-chip 10 Gbps switch with an IEEE 802.3ae- and IEEE 802.3ak-compliant Ethernet MAC, high-speed interface macros and a CX-4/XAUI SERDES interface.

It runs on a core clock speed of 312.5 MHz and delivers an aggregate bandwidth of 240 Gbps.

Fujitsu says the device can drive 25 meters of copper cable.

It also allows system designers to develop compact switches using high-performance, multi-ported memory, which can handle simultaneous read and write operations to and from a total of twelve 10 Gbps ports supporting 802.3ad link aggregation with total bandwidth capacity of 240Gbps.

The technology is designed for advanced network server, blade server and storage applications.
