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.
Aquantia AQLoud PHYs are 28 nm, high-performance, low-power 10GBase-T transceivers. The AQ2104 is a small-footprint, 1-port solution used in inter-rack connectivity. Housed in a 19 mm x 19 mm BGA package, the AQ2104 is compatible with the AQ2203, providing the option for single- or dual-port NIC and LOM solutions with minimal design edits.
Aquantia AQLoud PHYs are compliant with the IEEE 802.3an standard and perform all the physical-layer functions required to implement 10GBASE-T, 1000BASE-T, and 100BASE-TX transmission over 100 m of twisted-pair cabling.
The architecture offers mixed signal radio frequency cancellation techniques and integrated MDI filtering to ensure robustness in data center environments.
