16 Channel, 28 Gbps Crosspoint Switch & Signal Conditioners
The MAXP-37161 is a highly integrated, low power, fully non-blocking 16 channel 28 Gbps crosspoint switch targeted for 100G Ethernet, EDR InfiniBand and OTN applications. It is designed to compensate for signal loss in backplanes and copper cables. The switch is equipped with integrated Clock and Data Recovery (CDR), Adaptive Continuous Time Linear Equalization (ADCTLE) and Decision Feedback Equalization (DFE), compensating up to 32 dB loss at 12.9 GHz. Retiming is used to eliminate residual jitter and provide customers with a clean signal for transmitting to downstream devices. This device also offers diagnostic features, including on-chip eye monitoring for link margin evaluation or receiver optimization and integrated PRBS generators and checkers. The MAXP-37161A is offered in a small BGA package, enabling flexible placement on high density line cards.
