A central packet switch (CPS) from IDT purportedly optimizes port count, performance, and power consumption for up to six 4x ports of 10G connectivity. The 80KSW0006 incorporates in-house fourth-generation IDT SerDes and S-RIO core switch technology to address signal integrity and scalability. The new device supports S-RIO packet switching (including unicast, multicast and optional broadcast) from any of its six input ports to any of its six output ports. The device is available in a RoHS 676-ball BGA 27 mm x 27 mm. The device is currently sampling and is priced at $55 in 10,000 unit quantities.
