Fujitsu to Exhibit 20-Port 10 Gigabit Ethernet Switch Chip at Server Blade Summit in Anaheim, May 1 – 3

Fujitsu Semiconductor America Inc.

Anaheim, CA, April 30, 2007

Fujitsu Microelectronics America, Inc. (FMA) will exhibit its 20-port, 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) switch chip at the annual Server Blade Summit Conference ( at the Anaheim Marriott, May 1 – 3, 2007. A company representative will speak on a panel addressing the current trends in 10GbE and server blades.

The Fujitsu MB8AAQ3020 20-port, 10 Gigabit Ethernet switch chip delivers 400+Gbps non-blocking, aggregate switching bandwidth, along with high quality of service (QoS) capability designed for data center and carrier networks through state-of-art VLAN virtualization, backward congestion management notification (BCN) and priority-based PAUSE. Wirespeed switching at full cross-sectional bandwidth is achieved through a proprietary multi-stream 3Mbyte shared-buffer memory. Users can use either on-chip 10Gbps serial PHYs available to minimize connectivity for XFP modules, or on-chip PHYs for a CX-4 interface, with Hardware Adaptive equalization. Performance, combined with the smallest-in-class footprint and low power consumption, makes this device well-suited for Server Blade applications as well as other bladed configurations like microTCA, ATCA blade and carrier blade applications.

The MB8AAQ3020 was introduced in August 2006 ( The display at booth 303 will feature customer boards in blade server applications.

On Wednesday, May 2, from 3:15 to 4 p.m., Asif Hazarika, senior manager for the Networking Business Group of Fujitsu Microelectronics America, will be speaking on the panel, Session 309, “Current Trends in 10 Gigabit Ethernet.”
