Broadcom Shows 40nm Quad-Port 10G Controller

Broadcom introduced its latest generation of 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) converged controllers designed for high-volume, converged local-area-network-on-motherboard (LOM) and converged network adapter applications.

The new 40 nanometer (nm) controller family represents the industry's first offering of quad-port converged controllers, delivering up to twice the port density of existing products. The smaller footprint enables extremely low power per port. Broadcom also supports the latest PCI Express (PCIe) 3.0 specification.
