Single chip Ethernet controller
Available from DT Electronics, SMSC’s LAN9218 is a full-featured, single-chip 10/100 Ethernet controller that uses HP’s Auto-MDIX technology. HP Auto-MDIX eliminates the confusion associated with device pin assignments, the need to add a manual MDIX switch or use cross-over cables. The LAN9128 is driver-, register- and footprint –compatible with the previous generation of LAN9118 devices. Designed for embedded applications where performance...
DSL Solutions Based on TI's Next-Generation UR8 Residential Gateway Architecture
Texas Instruments has announced the availability of five new xDSL solutions from its next-generation UR8 residential gateway family. Based on an advanced multimedia gateway processor, these platforms give manufacturers the flexibility to design RGs with multiple home networking options and variations of feature functionality, including enhanced voice capabilities and advanced video services, over all ADSL and VDSL2 standards.
Jitter Attenuator with 250MHz Reference Clock
IDT has announced the introduction of a jitter attenuator optimized for the Xilinx Virtex-4 family of FPGAs. Designed to support PCI Express (PCIe), this component is said to be the industry’s first timing device capable of attenuating or “cleaning” the jitter from a 100 MHz PCIe input clock, while translating it to a 250 MHz LVDS output.
1.8V high-speed DUARTS
DT Electronics has made available Exar's family of dual universal asynchronous receiver transmitters (DUARTS) that operate from a 1.62V to 3.63V supply and feature 16, 32 or 64-byte FIFOs. Designated the M-series, each channel of these devices is capable of data rates up to 16 MBps at 3.3V with a 4X sampling clock.
