Chelsio and IBM to Develop 10 GigE for Enterprise Servers

Chelsio Communications, which develops 10-Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) adapters and ASIC solutions, announced an agreement with IBM on high-speed Ethernet connectivity solutions. Specifically, IBM will initially integrate Chelsio's technology in IBM Power System platforms. Chelsio will also explore additional joint development activities over time. This agreement expands the current relationship between IBM and Chelsio. IBM will manufacture Chelsio Ethernet ASICs at IBM's 300mm fab in East Fishkill, N.Y.

This agreement is expected to accelerate the development and industry availability of 10GbE adapters and ASIC solutions enabling the next generation IO designs targeted at the enterprise.
