Demand for Internet services, need for improved copper line conditions need to extend reach of copper lines, and increases in network traffic are major backplane transceiver market driving forces. Switch fabric, crosspoint switch, and backplane transceiver markets impact the entire network architecture for communications. These markets are looked as one entity because they address the same issue, how to move packets across the backplane. Two significant market shifts are occurring.

The old circuit switch architecture depended on one clock in Denver to create simultaneity for all the logic in all the proprietary circuit switch hardware. With the Internet cloud architecture, the one clock is gone and all the switches that move packets have different clocks. The shift in architecture puts more stress on the components that create switching capability in the network. These units have to operate at higher speeds and with more flexibility to handle the traffic that is being generated by the Internet. Combined voice, video, and data traffic is moving across the same switches at the same time, creating demand for new types of switch IC.

The transfer of information from the line card or motherboard to the backplane is moving from a parallel to serial architecture. This in turn gives rise to demand for new types of IC.

Blade servers are replacing to old circuit switches and the proprietary PBX hardware. Clustered blade servers with carrier grade Linux operating systems create computer industry hardware that can be used with proprietary software. Switch fabric, crosspoint switch, and backplane transceiver markets at $101.2 million in 2003 are expected to reach $579.6 million by 2009. Market growth is expected to be spurred by demand for storage and video capable networks. Higher speeds complement existing infrastructure. Gigabit Ethernet IC markets will drive demand for high-speed communications. Asynchronous IC communications capability provided by crosspoint switches permits design flexibility. Different protocols are supported.

Different solutions address the same issue, how to move packets across the backplane. Backplane transceivers are a significant aspect of the issue. Significant market shifts are occurring.

In addition, the transfer of information from the line card or motherboard to the backplane is moving from a parallel to serial architecture. This in turn gives rise to demand for new types of IC. Backplane transceiver markets in dollars at $8.8 million in 2003 are expected to reach $22 million by 2009.
