10GbE INTERCONNECT IN THE DATA CENTER
Aquantia’s distinctive and patented architecture
has led the 10GBASE-T industry in all metrics,
from power consumption to density and performance.
The 40nm AQ1402 is Aquantia’s 2nd generation of monolithic, low-power 10GBASE-T PHYs.
The Aquantia 40nm 10GBASE-T PHY generation is ideally suited for both intra-rack connectivity as well as driving up to 100m of Cat6A/Cat7 cable. Aquantia’s patent-protected, superior Mixed-Mode Signal Processing (MMSP) architecture continues to deliver best-in-class performance and power efficiency.
In a 25mm package, the AQ1402 provides a small footprint 4-port solution ideal for high-density systems, such as 48-port Top-of-Rack (ToR) or End-of-Row (EoR) switches. In this 25mm package, the AQ1402 is also forward compatible with the AQ2402 28nm Quad.
“ Crehan Research projects that 10GBASE-T will ship at a rate of 32 million ports in data centers in 2019.”
This market is expecting 52% CAGR from 2015 through 2019.
