Abstract

Although ATM (Asynchronous Transfer Mode), is a widely accepted standard for WANs (Wide Area Networks), it has not yet been widely embraced by the NOW community, because (i) most current ATM switches (and interfaces) have high latency, and and (ii) they drop ceils when (even short-term) congestion happens. In this paper, we present ATLAS I, a single-chip ATM switch with 20 Gbits/see aggregate I/O throughput, that was designed to address the above concerns. ATLAS I provides sub-microsecond cut-through latency, and (optional) backpressure (credit-based) flow control which never drops ATM cells. The architecture of ATLAS I has been fully specified and the design of the chip is well under progress. ATLAS I will be fabricated by SGS Thomson, Crolles, France, in 0.5 mμ CMOS technology.
