networking, Xilinx Inc. has rolled out 10-Gbit Ethernet, PCI-X and Common Switch
Interface (CSIX) products. Hypertransport and Infiniband offerings are in the works,
The San Jose, Calif., company said it has begun delivering a 10-Gbit Ethernet
media-access controller (MAC) core; a 100-MHz version of its PCI-X core; and a
reference design for the CSIX interface. The offerings are intended to push Xilinx's
