Data center switch

Block diagram


Our integrated circuits and reference designs help you create data center switches with ultra-high bandwidth and low-power consumption. Use the interactive reference diagram below to design a high-speed Ethernet switch with the right interface, physical interface device (PHY) and power management products to support the connectivity needs of modern Ethernet switch fabrics.

Design requirements

Modern data center switch designs require:

  • Highly-efficient power solutions for the latest-generation FPGAs, ASICs and CPUs.
  • Best-in-class signal integrity for ever increasing data rates.
  • Reduced system downtime through detection and prevention of damaging conditions.
