Broadcom Delivers Industry's Smallest Quad 10GBASE-T PHY

Lowest Power in 23 x 23mm Package Enables Single Row Top-of-Rack Design for Cloud-Scale and Mega Data Center Networks

IRVINE, Calif., Nov. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

News Highlights:

  • Delivers 50 percent lower power than previous generation
  • Optimized as companion device to StrataXGS® Trident Switch Series
  • Forward compatibility to 28 nanometer (nm) ensures scalability and preserves customer investments

Broadcom Corporation (NASDAQ: BRCM), a global innovation leader in semiconductor solutions for wired and wireless communications, today announced the availability of the industry's smallest quad 10GBASE-T physical layer transceiver (PHY). The BCM84848 second-generation 40nm 10GBASE-T PHY delivers 50 percent lower power in the industry's smallest footprint to enable next-generation 10GBASE-T Top-of-Rack switch platforms.1 Visit www.broadcom.com to learn more.

As demands for greater processing power and performance impose on rack space, OEM and ODM system designers must reduce footprint and power consumption. Designed as a companion device to Broadcom's StrataXGS Trident Switch Series, the highly integrated BCM84848 PHY allows OEMs to implement Top-of-Rack switches with 48 ports of 10GBASE-T and four 40 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) QSFP uplinks while maintaining minimal depth of the platform, thus avoiding the dual row layout required with larger PHY packages.

Offering the industry's smallest footprint with a 23 x 23mm package, the BCM84848 PHY allows sufficient space for QSFP uplinks and 10GBASE-T RJ45 connectors, providing OEMs with a distinct competitive advantage. Forward compatibility to next-generation 28nm process ensures scalability and preserves customer investments, eliminating the need to redesign the board when moving to the next node. 

The BCM84848 PHY features Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE) technology for multiple speeds including 10GBASE-T, 1000BASE-T and 100BASE-TX, expanding energy savings throughout the network by automatically reducing power consumption during periods of no activity. 

Key Features:

  • Robust operation over 100 meter Category 6a cables with industry standard 4-pair magnetics
  • Lower total cost of ownership with auto-negotiation that reduces system administration costs
  • IEEE 1588v2 with one-step timestamp insertion provides high accuracy timing
  • IEEE 802.1ae MACsec provides link layer security
  • Supports multiple speeds including 10GBASE-T, 1000BASE-T and 100BASE-TX with EEE supported on all three speeds

Availability
The BCM84848 PHY is now sampling with production volume slated for the first quarter of 2013.

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
