PLX Technology announced full production availability of
its TeraPHY TN8000 10GBase-T transceiver family. This PLX milestone ushers in a
fundamental shift in the global transformation of data center connectivity,
from Gigabit Ethernet to 10-Gigabit Ethernet performance.
The TeraPHY family is fabricated on a 40-nanometer lithography
node and consists of single-, dual- and quad-port integrated 10GBase-T
transceivers. Multiple PLX customers have tested and qualified these products.
With the market’s broadest 10GBase-T physical layer (PHY)
portfolio, PLX innovation enabled the industry’s first 10GBase-T equipment, and
the company today owns more than 60 percent market share for 10GBase-T PHY
PLX is presently shipping in volume 130nm, 65nm and 40nm nodes, while design has
already begun on its fourth-generation 28nm products.
We are very pleased to be able to offer designers
production-quality silicon that exceeds the performance requirements set forth
by the IEEE 802.3an standard,” said Ron Cates, PLX vice president of marketing,
This achievement will enable many new 10GBase-T
networking products and represents a future-proofing footprint for designers
seeking our lower-power, feature-laden transceivers to be released later this
year,” Cates added.
