- World’s highest density SoC and FE1600 fabric enable highly scalable 10/40/100G solutions
- Only merchant silicon to process a single stream of 200Gbps supporting two 100Gbps full-duplex ports
- Combines fabric/network interfaces, packet processor and traffic manager on a single chip
- Unparalleled integration reduces board space, power and system cost
Broadcom Corporation (NASDAQ: BRCM), a global innovation leader in semiconductor solutions for wired and wireless communications, today introduced the BCM88650 series, the world’s highest density 100 gigabit Ethernet (GbE) switching solution, enabling the design of switching platforms with densities up to 4,000 100GbE ports. With the industry’s highest level of integration, the BCM88650 system on chip (SoC) combines the features and functionality of a complete line card into a single chip. Together with Broadcom’s leading FE1600 (BCM88750) fabric, the BCM88650 SoC enables a new generation of high density networking solutions exceeding 100 terabits per second (Tbps).
