Data center switch

Block diagram

Overview

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.
