Ethernet Transceivers

Our 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet PHYs are high-performance, small-footprint, low-power 10BASE-T/100BASE-TX/1000BASE-T transceivers designed specifically for today's consumer electronics, industrial and enterprise applications. These devices feature Energy-Efficient Ethernet (IEEE® 802.3az) and Wake-On-LAN functionality, which provides system sleep modes for improved power savings. Available in the industry's smallest footprint and consuming up to 40% less power than similar products, they also have an integrated voltage regulator and ESD protection components to help reduce your Bill of Material (BOM) costs.

For service provider and data center interconnect applications on routers, switches and optical transport platforms, the PM6110 META-DX1 family supports 1-400 Gbps Ethernet re-timing, gearboxing , 2:1 mux, nanosecond accuracy, Precision Time Protocol (PTP) timestamping, crosspoint capabilities and optional Flexible Ethernet (FlexE) and AES 256 MACSec encryption.
