Microchip's Ethernet Portfolio

Robust, reliable, high-speed connectivity and control is possible when you add Ethernet networking is added to your embedded designs. Ethernet enables systems to be monitored securely over the Internet, allows for precision control of industrial motors at production facilities and enables the development of new Internet of Things (IoT) products with common microcontroller (MCU) interfaces like PCI/PCIe®, SPI, USB, xMII and 8-/16-bit parallel bus. Our Ethernet solutions include highly integrated Ethernet PHYs, bridges, controllers and switches complemented by a full line of 32-bit PIC® MCUs and SAM Arm® Cortex®-based MCUs and microprocessors (MPUs).

Do you need to double your cable length up to 200 meters at full bandwidth? Try adding an Ethernet single-coax transceiver. Get started with the FastECoax7501.

For high-speed telecommunications applications, our 1-400 Gigabit Ethernet PHYs, as well as the SimpliPHY™-branded 10/100 industrial-grade Fast Ethernet copper PHYs, SimpliPHY and SynchroPHY™ branded Gigabit Ethernet copper and dual-media PHYs deliver mission-critical connectivity via optical fiber, copper cable or backplanes.

If you need to support Gigabit Ethernet rates from 1 GbE to 400 GbE, the META DX1 family is the solution.
