Switchtec™ PFX/PFX-I PCIe® Gen3 Fanout Switch Families
PM853x PFX and PM857x PFX-I 96/80/64/48/32/24xG3 PCIe Gen3 Fanout Switches
The Switchtec PFX/PFX-I PCIe Gen3 fanout switch families comprise high reliabil-ity PCIe Base Specifi cation 3.1-compliant switches supporting up to 96 lanes, 24 virtual switch partitions, 48 Non-Transparent Bridges (NTBs), hot- and surprise-plug controllers for each port, advanced error containment and comprehensive diagnostics and debug capabilities. The PFX-I Gen3 PCIe Switch supports the full feature set available on the PFX* and operates over an extended industrial temperature range of –40°C ambient to 105°C junction.
Typical applications include data center equipment, defense, industrial servers, workstations, test equipment, video production and broadcasting equipment, cellular infrastructure, access networks, metro networks and core networking.
The evaluation kit is a device evaluation environment support-ing multiple host and SSD interfaces. These kits can be used for evaluation of the Switchtec PCIe Fanout switches. Note that a 96-lane PCIe switch is populated on the evaluation kit.
The following kit is available:
