Vitesse Semiconductor Corp. introduces the VSC7414 11-port gigabit Ethernet switch that integrates VeriTime technology for industrial Ethernet and enterprise routing applications. According to the company, the switch is the industry's lowest power and size solution supporting more than eight queues per port along with priority flow control (IEEE 802.1Qbb) mechanism for advanced Quality of Service critical for network equipment performance.

The IEEE1588v2 standard is forecast to be the dominant synchronisation technology for mobile networks by 2015. This precise timing synchronisation method is also finding use in electrical substations and power automation networks. Vitesse's sub-10ns accurate VeriTime technology, combined with very low power consumption and industrial temperature range support, makes the VSC7414 switch suited for such applications.

The VSC7414's support of the nanosecond-accurate synchronisation in IEEE1588v2 network timing also makes it suited for utility/smart grid and emerging Audio Video Bridging (AVB) applications where precision timing is required.

The VSC7414 is the newest addition to the widely deployed SparX-III family of switches, leveraging Vitesse's field-proven SparX-III and E-StaX-III switch architectures. The VSC7414 also includes Vitesse's EcoEthernet v2.0 technology to meet green standards such as IEEE 802.3az and embedded MIPS processor from prior generation devices. Complementary products offerings include VSC7420, VSC7424 and VSC7428 for SME and mobile backhaul applications.

The VSC7414 is available for sampling immediately.
