Ethernet PHYs / Transceivers for Networking Equipment
Reduce your development costs and time to market with Microsemi's Ethernet physical layer ICs (Ethernet PHYs). Our broad physical layer portfolio includes the SimpliPHY™ branded 10/100 Industrial-Grade Fast Ethernet copper PHYs, SimpliPHY and SynchroPHY™ branded Gigabit Ethernet copper and dual-media PHYs, as well as 10 Gigabit Ethernet and OTN PHYs for connecting systems via optical fiber, copper cable, or backplanes.
Microsemi's 1 Gigabit Ethernet (GE) and 10GE SynchroPHY family features VeriTime™, the industry's de facto highest accuracy IEEE 1588 network timing and synchronization. The newest PHYs also enable 256/128-bit AES encryption, based on Microsemi's Intellisec™ IEEE 802.1AE MACsec technology, and are the world's first to achieve Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 197 256-bit AES encryption certification. Microsemi's 1GE and 10GE PHYs combining Intellisec and VeriTime are the industry's only secure 1588 ICs, able to support AES encryption without compromising 1588 timing accuracy.
Microsemi's field-proven PHY portfolio delivers highly advanced feature integration at low power, compact footprint and low cost, significantly reducing development costs and time to market for a variety of network equipment such as access and aggregation routers and switches, mobile base stations, cell site routers and gateways, and more.
