Broadcom® Energy Efficient Ethernet and IEEE 1588 PHY Portfolio

With the addition of 40 nm 10/100/1000BASE-T PHYs and dual and quad port 10GBASE-T PHYs, Broadcom now offers the industry's broadest selection of Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE) 1588 PHYs developed using 40 nm process node technology. Broadcom is a leader in 40 nm process technology, boasting a full suite of highly integrated, low-power switches, controllers, and PHYs that simplify the design and lower the costs of system architectures for a wide range of network applications. Using the advanced 40 nm process technology allows Broadcom to deliver high performance PHY solutions that lower power consumption, reduce footprint and increase port density.

These highly integrated PHYs are fully compliant to the IEEE 1588-2008 (version 2) Precision Time Protocol (PTP) standard, offering the precise and accurate synchronization of network nodes needed for applications such as mobile backhaul, industrial automation and smart grid networks. Broadcom's EEE 1588 PHYs, as well as Broadcom's award-winning suite of EEE devices, are fully compliant with the 802.3az™-2010 EEE standard from the IEEE that promises to save billions in energy costs. These new devices leverage Broadcom's proprietary AutoGrEEEn™ technology to facilitate the adoption of EEE and provide a faster migration path for legacy networking equipment.
