NetLink® Gigabit Ethernet Controller with PHY
The NetLink BCM5788(M) is a fully integrated 10/100/1000BASET Gigabit Ethernet media access control and physical layer transceiver (PHY) solution for client networking applications. The NetLink BCM5788(M) combines a triple-speed, IEEE 802.3 compliant media access controller (MAC), a PCI v2.2 bus interface, an on-chip buffer memory, and an integrated PHY in a single device. The NetLink BCM5788(M) is fabricated in a low-voltage 0.13μ CMOS process, providing an ultra-low power solution.
The transceiver is fully compatible with the IEEE 802.3 standard for auto-negotiation of speed.
