10GBase-T PHY is Optimized for ToR Switches

Wed, 03/28/2012 - 12:21pm
transceiver PHYPLX Technology, Inc. announced the TeraPHY TN8045 10GBase-T transceiver, a quad-port physical layer (PHY) housed in a small 25mm-square package that is space-optimized to allow for 12 devices to fit side-by-side in a standard 48-port 10 Gigabit Ethernet Top-of-Rack (ToR) switch. The transceiver is also suitable for applications beyond these high-density ToR switches, including multi-port network adaptors that cater to servers, multi-port switch uplinks, and media converters. The PLX TN8045 quad-port 10GBase-T PHY offers the same functionally and performance as the TN8044, which is housed in a larger 27mm-square package, except the TN8045 eliminates the XAUI interface. Designed using the company’s third generation of PHY on 40-nm lithography node, this transceiver features a 10GBase-KR backplane interface, enhanced Energy Efficient Ethernet (eEEE) support, and it is asserted to be the industry’s only 10GBase-T PHY with on-chip MACSec security and encryption hardware.
