Christos Papakyriacou, Managing Director, Alpha Micro Components, comments: "Teridian Semiconductors has a long history in producing Ethernet PHY products. As Ethernet is now such an important medium for consumer and industrial applications, there is an increased demand for improved functionality without compromising on size. Teridian has managed to create a product 70% smaller than its main competitor whilst also eliminating many hardware control pins present on earlier PHY products."
