MUSIC sings praises of new queueing chip

April 16, 2001 – Milpitas, CA – MUSIC Semiconductors Inc. has introduced an application-specific standard product family that combines proprietary active memory technology with embedded microsequencer techniques to manage packet prioritization and quality of service in high-speed networks.

The new MUPA64K16 priority queue chip is built to help designers of high-performance routers and switches speed time to market, according to MUSIC. Supporting numerous scheduling algorithms, including weighted fair queueing, the chip can schedule 65,536 queues across as many as 16 physical ports, performing each operation in no more than 150 nanoseconds, the company said. The chip’s 128-pin package dissipates only 2 watts.
