SANTA CLARA, Calif. The PM3393 S/UNI 1x10GE-XP is a highly integrated, low power, all-purpose Ethernet LAN PHY that supports XAUI-based optical modules.
The device is targeted at large enterprise switches, edge and core routers and SAN applications. It addresses the market adoption of XAUI as a PHY-to-module interface for 10GE optics.
The S/UNI 1x10GE-XP has a SPI-4.2/PL4 system-side interface and a XAUI line-side interface with integrated standards compliant 10GE MAC and PCS blocks .The device meets the requirements of carrier-class networking equipment, and offers industrial temperature range operation from -40 to +85 degrees. It provides comprehensive Ethernet statistics to support enhanced billing and demanding network management challenges of Ethernet beyond the LAN.
Enhanced on-chip buffering is provided allowing for up to 2 kilometers of loss-less flow control to prevent packet drop due to network congestion. The industry standard PL4 system interface is fully SPI-4.2 compliant and allows vendors to support WAN interfaces as well as 10GE LAN and high-density lower rate Ethernet interfaces with a single link-layer solution.
The transceiver is packaged in a small footprint 27 mm by 27 mm, 672-pin FCBGA.
