The VSC3316 is the industry’s highest performance signal integrity crosspoint solution. The VSC3316 is uniquely capable of addressing a wide array of routing, switching, and signal integrity issues across storage, blade server, video distribution, telecommunications, and Ethernet applications. Featuring a 16×16 non-blocking, multicasting switch core with ports running at any rate up to 11.5G, the VSC3316 architecture provides protocol-transparent operation, allowing each channel to run independently. The VSC3316 supports a wide frequency range and virtually all data protocols. The VSC3316 incorporates Microsemi’s fourth-generation input equalization and pre-emphasis I/O capability engineered for the industry’s highest speed and protocol requirements. The device can perform signal fanout, loopback, and protection switching. It can also regenerate signals compromised by losses in the transmission medium. Microsemi’s equalization works independently of the data rate, providing highly effective compensation for deterministic jitter across a wide range of high-speed interconnect applications.
