Gigabit Ethernet PHY Transceiver

Gigabit Ethernet PHY Transceiver

Texas Instruments has introduced the DP83867E a robust, low power, fully featured physical layer transceiver which supports 10BASE-T, 100BASE-TX and 1000BASE-T Ethernet protocols. Optimized for electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection, the device exceeds 8kV IEC 61000-4-2. It interfaces directly to twisted pair media via an external transformer.

The transceiver interfaces to the MAC layer through the IEEE 802.3 standard media independent interface (MII), the IEEE 802.3 Gigabit media independent interface (GMII), or reduced GMII (RGMII).
