DesignCon 2011, NEWPORT BEACH, USA: Mindspeed Technologies Inc. will be demonstrating its analog offering for enterprise server, storage and networking applications from February 1-2 at DesignCon 2011.
The products in the company's signal integrity portfolio enable long system backplane traces and smaller gauge cabling media to sustain high-fidelity data transmission at today’s accelerating Peripheral Component Interconnect Express (PCI Express), Ethernet and Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) data rates.
Mindspeed will be featuring its broad line of Amplif-Eye signal-conditioning products, which deliver high-speed data across thin cables and long backplane traces for 10 Gigabit Ethernet, 8 gigabits per second (Gbps) PCI Express and 6 Gbps SAS data rates.
The company’s products include crosspoint switches with integrated signal-integrity management technology, re-driving signal conditioners that use transmit and receive equalization to correct for insertion loss and re-timing signal conditioners that add a clock data recovery (CDR) circuit to resolve jitter caused by crosstalk and reflections.
The company also supports customers through its signal integrity consulting group, and has unique expertise related to channel modeling and signal-recovery dynamics that can be extremely difficult, especially across 10 Gbps backplanes.
"Mindspeed’s signal-integrity solutions play a critical role in the next-generation enterprise infrastructure, including the server, storage and networking sectors, as data rates increase and signal-to-noise margins are stretched razor-thin," said Matthew Bolig, senior product line manager for Mindspeed's high-performance analog business unit.
“Accelerating data rates create difficult challenges that require robust signal-integrity management. Mindspeed continues to innovate in this area with products and modeling expertise that solve our customers' most challenging signal integrity problems."
