Gigabit PHY

Broadcom’s Gigabit products are based on our proven digital signal processor technology integrating digital adaptive equalizers, ADCs, phase-locked loops, line drivers, encoders, decoders, echo cancelers, crosstalk cancelers, and all other required support circuitry into a single device. With full compliance to the IEEE 802.3az Energy Efficient Ethernet standard and AutoGrEEEn, our solutions offer substantially lower power consumption during periods of low-link utilization.

For applications which require precise and accurate synchronization of the nodes in a network, Broadcom’s Gigabit PHYs include support for 1588 PTP v2 time stamping with 1ns resolution.  PHYs with MACSec encryption capability are also available for customers needing enhanced network security.
