10GbE Converged Controllers For Converged Network Adapter Applications
Broadcom offers latest generation of 10 Gigabit Ethernet converged controllers.
As reported on EE Herald, Broadcom has announced its latest generation of 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) converged controllers designed for high-volume, converged local-area-network-on-motherboard (LOM) and converged network adapter applications. The new 40 nanometer (nm) controller family represents the industry's first offering of quad-port converged controllers, delivering up to twice the port density and offers 67 percent higher input/output per second (IOPS) as compared to Broadcom's previous generation 10G offering, the company claims.
"Vinod Lakhani, Senior Director & General Manager, Broadcom High-Speed Controllers says 'Broadcom has shipped over 40 million converged controller ports which speaks to the maturity of the market. With our latest generation of 40nm 10G controllers, we once again raise the performance and integration bar which will help drive the 10GbE transition further into the data center.'"
