Summary

The KSZ8041TL is a 10Base-T/100Base-TX Physical Layer Transceiver with MII, RMII, and SMII MAC interfaces, and Micrel LinkMD® TDR-based cable diagnostics for identification of faulty copper cabling. It utilizes a unique mixed-signal design to extend signaling distance while reducing power consumption, and offers HP Auto MDI/MDI-X for reliable detection of and correction for crossover and straight-through cables, eliminating the need to differentiate between crossover and straight-through cables. The KSZ8041FTL has all the identical rich features of the KSZ8041TL plus 100Base-FX support for fiber and media converter applications. The KSZ8041TL/FTL Eval Board (KSZ8041TL/FTL-EVAL) provides a convenient platform to evaluate the KSZ8041TL/FTL features. All KSZ8041TL/FTL configuration pins are accessible either by jumpers, test points or interface connectors.
