OverviewIntel intends to offer multiple market- and customer-specific product variants based on the platform. This preliminary data sheet documents the features and functionality of the initial 24-port variant of the Intel® Ethernet Switch FM2000 platform, which will be referred to in this document as the Intel® Ethernet Switch FM2224.Product OverviewThe FM2224 is a fully-integrated, single-chip, 24-port, 10G Ethernet layer-2 switch chip that offers wire-speed performance, extremely low latency characteristics, and leading power efficiency. With its robust, layer-2 switching capabilities and the ubiquity of Ethernet, the FM2224 fits comfortably in a number of existing and emerging applications. And, with the unprecedented level of integration, the FM2224 removes the cost, area, and power barrier for rapid and far-reaching 10G Ethernet deployment.ApplicationsWith unprecedented integration, performance, power efficiency, and latency characteristics, the FM2224 can be used for a variety of infrastructure and interconnect applications, some of which include:•Blade computer and IP storage platform internal fabric• Data center cluster interconnect (clustered computers and storage resources)• Enterprise stackable switch (performance workgroups and workgroup aggregation)• AdvancedTCA backplane fabric (star or mesh architecture)• AdvancedTCA carrier card switch (interconnecting mezzanine cards)• Proprietary system backplane fabric.
