10/100/1000BASE-T Ethernet PCIe Controller with SD3.0 Card Reader (100MB/s) and ASF 2.0

Currently Viewing:

10/100/1000BASE-T Ethernet PCIe controller with SD3.0 card reader and ASF 2.0 for desktop and mobile PCs.
The device combines a triple-speed IEEE 802.3™-compliant Media Access Controller (MAC) with a triple-speed Ethernet transceiver, x1 PCIe™ bus interface, a single-slot 5-in-1 memory card reader interface and on-chip buffer memory in a single device. The device is fabricated in 1.2V CMOS process, providing a low-power system solution.
The device performs all the physical layer functions for 1000BASE-T, 100BASE-T and 10BASE-T Ethernet on standard Category 5 unshielded twisted-pair cable. Based on proven DSP technology, the BCM57785 combines digital adaptive equalizers, ADCs, PLLs, line drivers, echo cancellers, crosstalk cancellers and all other required support circuitry. A full-featured MAC provides full-/half-duplex capability at all speeds. The card reader provides feature-rich SD3.0 support.
