Avago Technologies Unveils New Industrial Fiber Optic Products at PCIM Europe 2015

Avago Technologies unveiled a wide array of new industrial fiber optic products targeting renewable energy, industrial motor drive and transportation applications. The new products will be showcased in the Avago booth 6-206 at the PCIM Europe 2015 exhibition in Nuremberg, Germany from May 19, 2015 to May 21,2015. New Product Highlights include: AFBR-3905xxRZ/3950xxRZ 'High Voltage Galvanic Insulation Links': Suppresses transient peak voltages up to 50 kV per IEC 60664-1 specification, Available in 1, 2, 3 and 4-inch length, Supports data rates from DC to 5 MBd (AFBR-3905xxRZ), Supports data rates from DC to 50 MBd (AFBR-3950xxRZ), Suitable for high voltage on-board insulation in applications such as power distribution, smart grid, and industrial inverters and motor drives; AFBR-59FxZ Compact 650nm POF Transceivers with Bare Fiber Locking System: Supports serial data communications from 100 Mbps to 1 Gbps, Innovative bare fiber locking mechanism eliminating the need for connectors, Footprint comparable to RJ-45 connector; and AFBR-25x1CZ Enhanced 650nm Versatile Link Fiber Optic Receivers: Supports data rates from DC to 5 MBd with superior EMI performance, Link distances up to 50 meters using 1mm 0.5NA POF and 500 meters using 200um 0.37NA PCS, Operates in 3.3V or 5V supply with TTL data output and Available in horizontal, vertical and 30°-tilted packages.

Avago Reportedly Shows Interest In Xilinx, Renesas, Maxim

Avago Technologies Limited (NasdaqGS:AVGO), looking to acquire a fellow chipmaker, has reached out to potential targets including Renesas Electronics Corporation (TSE:6723), Maxim Integrated Products, Inc. (NasdaqGS:MXIM) and Xilinx Inc. (NasdaqGS:XLN), according to people familiar with the matter. Avago is working with investment banks and could spend more than $10 billion on a potential takeover, the people said. None of the three approaches has yet led to advanced deal discussions, in part because of Avago's fear of overpaying, the people added. Avago has also spoken to Silver Lake Partners about partnering in a potential acquisition, the people said.

Avago Technologies Announces Full Production of its PEX9700 Series of Third Generation Switches to Enable the Convergence of Servers, Storage, and Network Devices

Avago Technologies announced full production of its PEX9700 Series of 3rd generation switches that enable the convergence of servers, storage, and network devices through PCIe. With an suite of key new features that make up the core of Avago ExpressFabric® technology, the PEX9700 series of switches are designed for the most demanding data center environments. The PEX9700 series of managed PCIe switches simplify connectivity of data center systems and delivers the higher PCIe switching performance available inside the rack, reducing both cost and power consumption up to 50% when compared with traditional connectivity platforms. To meet the needs of hyperscale and data-intensive applications, data centers need to manage costs and power consumption while maximizing performance. While PCIe is the ubiquitous interconnect for internal devices, external device connectivity typically requires using other architectures. This wastes power, reduces performance, and increases costs. To eliminate this waste, Avago offers the next generation of switches featuring the PEX9700 series to directly connect in-rack devices using PCIe. Devices within a hyperscale system, NVMe enclosure, and rack-scale-based subsystems can now communicate directly through the same high-performance PCIe fabric, turning those devices into a single high-performance, high-capacity compute system. The PEX9700 series of switches offer several key new switching features including: Shared I/O - Enables endpoints to be shared among multiple hosts to maximize system resource efficiency and reduce cost and power; Tunneled Windows Connection - Interconnect up to 24 (+1 management host) nodes on a single chip or cascade multiple chips to connect up to 72 nodes with no performance loss; Embedded DMA Engines-Equips each port with a NIC-DMA engine that enables efficient data transfers between multiple hosts; Flexible Port Configuration - Allows up to 23 endpoints to be combined with ports as wide as 16 lanes, providing nearly 16GB/s of bandwidth on each link; Downstream Port Containment - Isolates errors in any endpoint from bringing down the entire system; Dedicated Port Management - Enables software control of switch features for customized implementations using Avago-developed software modules. With PCIe performance of up to 1.5Tb/s through 97 lanes in full-duplex mode, the PEX9700 series of switches are a 3rd generation platform based on 12 years of field-proven deployments. As the worldwide leader in PCIe switching technology, with over 100 million ports shipped, Avago is delivering technology years ahead of the competition. Availability: The PEX9700 Series of ExpressFabric products are now shipping in full production to leading OEMs with seven new models ranging from 12-Lanes/5-Ports to 97-Lanes/25-Ports. The entire platform is compliant with the PCI Express Base Specification r3.0 standard.
