Flexible Solutions for Ethernet Networks

Add robust and reliable high-speed communication to your embedded design. Ethernet can be used in many communications, consumer, industrial, automotive and other applications that require network connectivity, including remote monitoring of systems, implementing precision industrial motor control and communicating with Internet of Things (IoT) devices. Whatever your networking challenge is, our stand-alone devices as well as microcontrollers (MCUs) and microprocessors (MPUs) with Ethernet support make it easy to implement Ethernet in your applications. We also offer timing solutions to clock our Ethernet products that you can use to achieve higher reliability and lower power consumption in your design and to meet AEC-Q100 requirements in automotive networking applications.

For high-speed telecommunications applications, our META-DX1 family of 1-400 Gigabit Ethernet PHYs, as well as the SimpliPHY™ family of 10/100 industrial-grade Fast Ethernet copper PHYs, SimpliPHY and SynchroPHY™ families of Gigabit Ethernet copper and dual-media PHYs deliver mission-critical connectivity via optical fiber, copper cable or backplanes.
