ServerWorks´ server chipset with Gigabit Ethernet
Implementing the developments of parental Broadcom, ServerWorks announced the plans to release server logics with integrated Gigabit Ethernet adapters.
In the future the company is going to implement Gigabit Ethernet into memory controller chip. This Gigabit Ethernet integration will be featured already in 90-nm chipsets.
New Ethernet I/O bridges from ServerWorks will be produced in four versions. Grand Champion Ethernet I/O Bridge or CIOB-E will include control and physical level logics of dual-port 10/100/1000 Ethernet controller and also 64-bit / 133 MHz PCI-X host controller supporting up to four devices. CIOB-ES will additionally feature an auxillary dual back-panel interface for blade servers.
5704 version will be produced for low-end systems. It will support single-channel 133 MHz PCI-X and single-port Gigabit Ethernet. 5703 will support single 66/133 MHz PCI-X.
New elements of server chipsets require 3-5 W and use 3.2 GB/sec ServerWorks IMB2 bus for memory controller connectivity. CIOB-E supports IPMI for the management and four SMBus ports. CIOB-E bridge is made using 0.13-micron process technology of Taiwanese TSMC. Samples are already available for $50 per unit in 1000-unit consignments.
